Diet Friendly Desserts

Watching our waistline doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy the occasional treat! Here are 5 desserts you can enjoy on a diet.

Skinny Avocado Chocolate Mousse (serves 4)

220 calories per serving
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 tbsp cacao
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 100ml almond milk
Blend, place into small pots, or glasses, set in fridge and top with raspberries.

Whilst there may be a tendency to worry about using avocado within sweet treats, in actual fact avocado is the secret ingredient to the desserts rich and velvety texture.

Avocados are not only bursting with nutrients and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats but there is also evidence to show that they may support weight loss. One study demonstrated that those who ate half an avocado with their lunch felt 23% more satisfied and had a 28% lower desire to eat over the next 5 hours.


Frozen Berry Popsicles (makes 8 popsicles)

27 calories per popsicle
  • 245g natural yoghurt
  • 200g berries
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
Freeze into ice lolly moulds.

Frozen Berry Popsicles - Good diet dessert

This super simple dessert takes a few minutes to whiz together and makes a great choice while the September sun is still out.

The combination of the protein-rich yogurt, low sugar berries and insulin sensitising cinnamon, makes this the no.1 dessert for balancing blood sugar.

By stepping off the blood sugar roller coaster, you may minimise weight gain and further cravings for sugary indulgences.


Pistachio Chocolate Banana Bites

Pistachio Banana Sushi Good Sweets To Eat While On Diet

Dip one banana into good quality dark chocolate, place onto a plate and sprinkle over crushed pistachios. Slice into sushi pieces and then place into fridge to set. This sushi dessert can be eaten with chopsticks.

First things first, bananas contain very few calories, around 100 max, yet they’re full of fibre so can be filling at the same time. Increasing your fibre intake from fruit and vegetables has repeatedly been shown by science to help with weight loss.

These little super seeds so are much more than just another craze. They are what gives this dessert its 6g fibre and 4g protein per serving! Fibre can increase the feeling of fullness which is exactly what you need for weight loss.
