Dare I say... a "healthy" dessert?

I know, I know.... you say, if it's healthy, it's not dessert!

I know there's going to be some aspect of anything labeled a dessert not the greatest for you, ie. some amount of sugar, but I'm just looking for something to satisfy that craving for something tasty and sweet after dinner every now and then. I'm open for pretty much anything besides any kind of candy such as fudge. I already know that's probably my weakest point. I cannot for the life of me make any kind of candy.

So, my friends, what do you have for me that I can enjoy, yet not feel terribly guilty afterwards?

I'm not a big dessert eater, but BR always seemed to fill the bill after a good meal

Lol... was kinda looking for some recipes

Black russian... cant drink liquor. The smell of it makes me ill.

Three Musketeers... Not too into candy as it's TOO sweet. My friends and co-workers think I'm nuts when I say I don't like chocolate.

Im thinking fresh fruit like berries and banana or what ever you like. Top with some vanilla yogurt and a sprinkle of granola.

Even canned fruit can be good like pineapple,peaches,pears etc with vanilla yogurt or some cottage cheese with a good sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

Healthy? Your asking the wrong crowd. lol. j/k.

Sometimes I want just a little bite of something. Usually go with fruit or fruit salad, but a quick "fix" for me is Yoplait Whipped.

Yoplait - Products - Whips

Use to buy those little pudding cups

JELL-O Sugar-Free/Reduced Calorie Snacks - JELL-O Gelatin, Pudding, and No-Bake Desserts

Hmmmm. These look interesting. (Well, at least they're small. lol)
Almond Heart Napoleons

Or... little ice cream cups (vanilla w chocolate or strawberry swirls), that come several to a package - in the freezer/ice cream section.

For recipes, I'm a fan of Cooking Light.

CookingLight.com

Cause you can't eat mascarpone, a stick of butter, heavy cream, & prosciutto 7 days a week, & live past 35.
