kroger sells dessert shells that are 80 calories each. strawberries 2 tablespoon of cool whip. You could use a light version of cool whip to cut more calories (although 2 tablespoons of cool whip is only 25 calories. I don't really care for fat free or sugar free products.)

I made these last week, they're basically meringues with chocolate chips in them. They're only 55 calories a piece. They're from www.skinnytaste.com. I didn't have white chocolate chips, just used regular. I baked for 40 minutes and I think you could do it a little less, mine never got chewy like she talks about. I usually had them 2 at a time and that was plenty to satisfy my sweet tooth/chocolate cravings.

Sugar free Jello made in any tupperware type container keeps it from drying out and getting rubbery. At 10 calories and ice cold sweetness, it keeps me from choosing the hot fudge sundaes being enjoyed by my family!

My fave is stemmed strawberries with a lil bit a nutella stuffed inside. Three large strawberries with a tbsp of nutella divided among them would run you about 115 to 120 calories

I like bananas! -Slice up a banana and sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey. -Slice up a banana and drizzle with chocolate syrup. -Banana "Ice cream". Slice up a banana and place in freezer until nearly frozen. Do not freeze! Place in food processor or blender. It'll become fluffy and ice cream like. You can drizzle with chocolate or add other toppings. -Chocolate Avocado Pudding. There's a ton of recipes online. -Greek Yogurt with honey These are my "go to" treats!

We use an envelope of sugar-free hot cocoa mix or a small box of sugar-free jello and whip it into a tub of sugar-free or low-fat cool whip. If you're feeling festive around the holidays - smash up some candy canes to add to the chocolate one. Ok - so it may not be super healthy...but it is a treat that is simple and easy to make.
