Sweet Tooth Attack

Hey Skinnies -

I ran across these healthy dessert ideas in a magazine article I clipped back in 1998.
(Yes...I've been working on weight control for a l-o-n-g time...)

But these are great ideas! You can have ONE of these 100-calorie treats each day.

100 calories:
1/2 cup fat-free frozen yogurt
1 slice crumb cake (1 oz)
1 graham cracker topped with 1 1/2 tsp peanut butter & 1 tsp semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 slice fat-free poundcake (1.2 oz) topped w/ 1 fresh strawberry & 2 tsp strawberry jam

50 calories:
12 chocolate-covered raisins

250 calories:
(For a little splurge on the weekend)
Oatmeal Cookie Sandwich:
scoop 1/4 cup vanilla ice cream between two 3-inch store-bought oatmeal cookies

1 Chocolate Eclair

And here are a few more ideas...

50 calories or less...

1 1/2 pieces red stick licorice
2 small lollipops
2 hard butterscotch candies

5 small chocolate-covered mints

100 calories or less...
4 chocolate kisses
3 chocolate graham crackers
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla pudding
1 frozen fudge bar
3 chewy caramel candies
1 fat-free chocolate-coated frozen yogurt bar
2 vanilla sandwich cookies
1 low-fat almond-flavored biscotti (small)

250 calories or less...
1 fudge brownie (1 1/2 x 3 inches)
1 cup raspberry sorbet
1/2 cup premium chocolate ice cream
1/18 of a 9-inch chocolate layer cake with chocolate frosting
