Healthier Ways to Eat Dessert
Smart Substitution: Dessert

Great suggestions! I especially like the one about substituting "applesauce or prune puree instead of oil when baking to naturally trap moisture into your cakes and breads." But just how much applesauce equals, say 1/4 cup of vegetable oil? I don't think you can do an even exchange and get the same results.

"Less sugar. A lot of recipes call for much more sugar than is needed. You might even like it better! " I cannot agree more. I usually cut the sugar by half or sometimes to one third when I use American recipe... They come out great all the time!
My favorite dessert right now is No Sugar Added LowFat Yogurt in vanilla, coconut, banana, or key lime poured over now-in-season sliced strawberries. Could NOT be sweeter or more delicious!

I'm a big sugar junkie and the more i eat, the more i have to eat. I've been using Agave Nectar in place of sugar lately. It's a natural product, it's the nectar from the catctus. It's very low on the glycemic index and doesn't spark sugar cravings. You can use it in coffee, tea and bake with it. It's much sweeter than sugar so you'll use at the most, half of what the recipe calls for.
