Could you just make a normal dessert since it is for a group who may not be watching what they eat and then for yourself have a small piece? If you pair lets say a piece of pie that is small with some fruit or a chocolate chip cookie and fruit?
For a healthier choice I once took pound cake or angel food cake which is lower in calories spread with cool whip and topped with strawberries which people seemed to like

Yes for sure .... Angel food cake.....also pumpkin pie is can just skip the crust to save on calories.

15 baked miniature phyllo tart shells (one 2.1-ounce box)
1, 6 - 8 ounce carton Fage 0% plain Yogurt
2/3 cup fresh blueberries, raspberries, and/or cut-up strawberries
Fill phyllo tart shells with yogurt. Top with blueberries, raspberries, and/or cut-up strawberries. Serve at once or cover and chill up to 3 hours before serving. Makes 15 miniature tarts.

The best fruit Trifle !!! Zero fat !!! and no need to tell anyone about the fat free cool whip either !!


2 cups blueberries
1 angel food cake, cut into chunks
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups sliced and peeled peaches
1 (6 ounce) container fresh raspberries
2 (16 ounce) tubs fat free Cool Whip, thawed

In a deep, clear glass bowl or trifle bowl, spread a layer of angel food cake chunks.

Place some chopped strawberries on top of cake layer.

Sprinkle a layer of blueberries on top of the strawberries

Followed by a layer of chopped peach slices on top of the blueberries.

Sprinkle a few fresh raspberries over the peaches.

Dollop a layer of whipped topping, then repeat layers until all cake and fruit has been used.

Finish trifle with a layer of whipped topping and maybe a few pieces of fruit if you have any left

Cover the trifle, and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Here are some that you can eat wisely from!
-- Strawberry shortcake (you eat strawberries, save the whipped cream and shortcake part for them)
-- Pavlova (made with egg whites -- again, supply whipped cream but take only a taste)
-- Chocolate dipped berries
-- Mangoes, pureed and run through an ice cream maker with some peach nectar to hold it together
-- Honeydew melon with lime juice and chopped candied ginger, serve with a cookie (for them)

Hope this helps.

How about a big bowl of cut up fresh fruit (fresh berries, mango, peaches, melon, etc. all mixed together) or even slices of seedless watermelon. Anytime I take something like that anywhere it disappears quickly.

fruit kabobs
apple and orange slices
frozen bananas on a stick (in cooler packed with ice)
frozen green grapes (so good)
sugar free meringue cookies (sweetened with stevia)
