Are you like me and need that little sweet something at the end of the day? Don’t panic, you can still lose weight and have a small treat. I wouldn’t recommend eating dessert every day, however on those few days per week that dessert is a must, I like to eat something low fat (under 6 grams) and low in calories (under 200 calories). Take a look at my favourite low fat, easy to prepare desserts.
1. Roasted Peach halves with brown sugar 205cal, 6g fat
Mmmmmm! Halve a peach, remove the stone and place on baking tray. Put ½ teaspoon of butter in each stone hole, then sprinkle ½ tablespoon of brown sugar over peach and in hole. Bake until butter and sugar are melted and the peach is soft and warm-hot. Serve with low fat ice cream.
Peach – 55cal, 0g fat
Brown sugar – 1tbspn, 45cal, 0g fat
Butter – 1 tsp, 35cal, 4g fat
Ice Cream – Peter’s light and creamy low fat: 100ml scoop, 70cal, 2g fat
