I make homemade yogurt with no sugar and fat free milk....a great dessert is a bowl of this homemade vanilla yogurt with a teaspoon of jalapeņo jelly mixed in. the jelly gives it a lot of flavor, but the yogurt is full of protein with no added sugar! Great dessert.

I like to eat frozen fruit with Cool Whip. Also I like to lick a spoon of peanut butter sometimes as a dessert. That might not fly for others though. I have found a great website called Damyhealth.com They have lots of raw desserts that are amazing. Using raw subsitutes for sugar and all the other not so great ingredients. take a look, and see if any of them appeal to you! Some you may see and think... those ingredients just dont sound right... but they actually come together quite nicely in the finishing product.
fruit sorbets, greek yogurt (plain) with nuts and honey, and as a treat me and my daughter often buy a bar of really good dark chocolate and have a piece each a night until its finished. some other great ideas here

Almost Apple Pie
Peel and slice apples in bowl as you would for pie, add cinnamon or nutmeg (optional raisens/chopped nuts). and a few sprays of margerine spray.. if the apples are dry, add a few tbs of water to the mix. Stir together and place in pie pan or baking dish sprayed with canola oil Using cookie cutters, cut out shapes from one unrolled thawed bought piecrust. Arrange on top. Bake at 375 about 40 minutes until apples are bubbley, if crust cut outs are becomming to brown, lightly cover with foil.

Now, don't knock this until you've tried it! I came up with this extremely healthy pudding substitute when I joined Sparks and needed something at the end of the day to bump up my protein and iron numbers. Now I make it regularly with various flavorings.
Make up a of Cream of Wheat, using water as the liquid. Add some Truvia to sweeten to taste. You can flavor it with cocoa powder, a McCormick extract, maple syrup, etc. Chill it: I portion it out into individual Gladware tubs. As it chills, it thickens up. To serve, I frost it with 2-3 oz of creamy, rich, homemade Greek yogurt.
Another alternative to making a healthy pudding based on Cream of Wheat would be to add a package of sugarfree jello or pudding.
Also you can take a melon baller and make small scoops on a plate, top with blueberrie, strawberries,pineapple, drizzle all with a little chocolate syrup and small dabs of cool whip. My version of a healthy low cal. banana split....Yummy! I meant small scoops of frozen banana, but you could use cantalope or honey dew, I`ve never tried anything, but frozen banana.

It's one of those things that tastes great in it's own right, not just "nice for a diet recipe". I've seen instructions to add all sorts of things - nutella, peanut butter, cocoa... but I quite like it in it's unadulterated banana-y-ness.

JEN, that's one of my new favorites. I found the recipe on the recipe page about a month or so ago, and I make it at least once or twice a week. I add a little bit of maple syrup and some vanilla extract when I'm whipping it up. Sooo good!

If they eat bananas you could always try making banana ice cream.
Peel and cut up banana. Freeze. Put the frozen banana chunks into the blender and blend and blend and blend. It eventually turns into banana soft serve. You can have it like that or put it back in the freezer to harden (I freeze in individual portions so that it's handy when I want it - it can freeze pretty solid). It's very sweet and really is like proper ice cream.
Any use for you?

I'm looking for some completely healthy or mostly healthy desserts that are easy to make. My kids and husband said they're tired of eating the same mixed fresh fruit bowls that I make for dessert every night. But I go with what I know. I don't know any other healthy desserts. But if someone knows of something that is rather cheap and easy to make, I am willing to learn how to do it. And finally give my family a variety. I know they would really thank anyone that is able to help me put something different in their dessert bowls tonight. LOL
