Mix 3 tbsp. Cool Whip, 1 tsp. mini chocolate chips and 8-10 mini marshmallows in a bowl. Break two sheets of graham crackers in half. Spread mixture on two of the halves and make a sandwich with the other halves. Freeze 1-2 hours. YUM!

It's the perfect season for strawberries, sponge cakes and cool whip.

I also make frozen yogurts with Greek yogurt, (fruit, nuts/nut butter, crushed candy, Oero or graham cracker crumbs, etc.), instant pudding powder and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. You can also make soft serve with fruit (bananas work great!)

Snickerdoodle blondies- made with chickpeas and nut butter. Just google them, plenty of recipes.

Greek yogurt parfaits

Low fat cheesecakes made with low or no fat cream cheese. There's plenty of recipes on Spark recipes.

Greek yogurt soufflés.

Graham crackers with your fav toppings; cream cheese and fruit, nut butter, honey and fruit.

Slice a banana up on a whole wheat tortilla, top with cream cheese, honey and cinnamon and "toast it" on a frying pan, not too brown you want to be able to roll it up after.

This is my favourite healthy dessert blog:

I know, I know but don't let the title be deceiving, there's plenty of non-chocolate recipes on the site.

I'm looking at both home made and store bought options. And it would be an every now and then indulgence, though looking at keeping it under 250-300 calories if possible. Prefer more healthy so I can eat it more often. But not entirely sure yet, still trying to get the hang of eating right.

Angel food cakes, desserts that have fruits (apples, peaches, berries, etc). I make apple turnovers and you can buy those hand pies/turnovers at the market, blueberry muffins ( or other muffins), strawberries and whipped cream (always a personal fav!), ice cream if you are not eating a whole carton in one sitting, pudding, coffee cakes, eating sweet fruits by themselves, cookies, rice krispie treats, chewing gum, hard candies, etc

depends on if you want healthy desserts or something that you can indulge in every now and again...also depends on if you are buying or making yourself and how long you want it to last.

1 cup of greek yogurt (plain)
1 tablespoon of fat free / sugar free instant pudding mix in any flavor
Mix together - it is like cheesecake

peanut butter and a banana

I am looking at buying some desserts that I can enjoy but that are not chocolate (allergic to chocolate and can only have minor amounts of white chocolate). Right now I have the Skinny Cow Pretty in Pink truffle bar and am looking for more like this but maybe not as rich. Any suggestions on what I can have and still stay within my calorie intake?

Thank you
