Try using almond milk - it's naturally sweet enough to discount the sugar.-10 Sep 2015

Made this twice now though used fresh apple as I didn't have any apricots. I also added an extra egg and half as much milk again as I especially like the custard part. Very good especially as I need to be on a low fat diet at present. Thanks for sharing.-30 Aug 2016

I made this with some slices of old brioche bread (no butter, but added currants) - it was light, slightly crisp on the top, not too sweet, and really lovely.... I have no idea of ratio I put it together with, but the egg mix didn't quite cover the bread.-19 May 2015

What Kind of Desserts are Low Calorie?

In general, these types of desserts are lower in calories, or can typically be made with lower-calorie ingredients. Of course, it always depends on the exact recipe. Many of the recipes on this list fall into these categories:

  • Frozen desserts, such as popsicles or sorbets - eating a frozen dessert means that you can enjoy it for longer. Because they usually take a while to eat, they are great for satisfying that dessert craving and feeling like you ate a big dessert without having many calories.
  • Fruit-based desserts - fruit isn't too high in calories, as long as you don't use too much sugar with it
  • Fluff or mousse type desserts - these often don't have too many calories because they contain a lot of air. Fluffs or mousse can be great options if made with sugar-free or low-sugar ingredients.

The Skinny on Slow Cooker Chocolate Pudding Cake

I’d never before made a slow cooker chocolate pudding cake and had my doubts about how this would turn out. But a cooking tip beside the recipe said that the batter would rise to the top and turn into cake. Underneath there would be a rich chocolate pudding.

It worked! While not exactly “pudding,” beneath the chocolate cake was a warm, satiny chocolate pudding-like sauce!

This skinny slow cooker chocolate pudding cake is definitely going on my “make again” list.

10 Tips to Skinnier Desserts + Strawberry Poke Cake Using 7UP TEN

Living in Vegas our warm weather clothes period is longer than most folks across the nation. For some reason when spring hits I start thinking about that cute skirt or shorts for summer. Then, I will remember that it is __ sizes smaller than what I am now .

Spring is here and you know what that means… summer is around the corner!

One of my weaknesses – and probably yours too – is a yummy dessert. I will choose a restaurant based on their desserts! Did you know with a substitute here and maybe there you can still enjoy your favorite high-calorie desserts by making them into a low-calorie dessert?

We saw some amazing strawberries at grocery store while shopping so I decided to grab a few things to go with them. You know — bake a cake to go with my strawberries! I was able to grab a few containers for less than $2 each since I was able to price match them using another store’s weekly ad price. SCORE!

Below are 10 tips to make your desserts skinnier. NOTE: know your recipe and substitutions so you don’t end up with a dessert fail.

  1. Make your cakes or bread moister by using applesauce for oil
  2. Use a 1:1 ratio of applesauce to buttermilk as a substitute for oil
  3. Use a diet soda such as one of the TEN products
  4. Egg substitutes or egg whites instead of using whole eggs
  5. Don’t use the full amount suggested for sugar
  6. Prune puree for your butter or oil
  7. Instead of sour cream in your favorite cake recipe, try using low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese
  8. Skim milk instead of whole milk
  9. Chocolate chunks vs mini chips for the same flavor but fewer calories
  10. Marshmallow cream instead of butter or cream cheese when creating your cake icing

Below is my “skinny” cake recipe that I am easily creating into a low-calorie dessert by doing the following:

  • 7UP TEN instead of oil
  • Sugar-free packaged ingredients
  • 2 egg whites instead of whole eggs
  • Low-fat milk for my “icing” recipe
  • Light whipped topping of full fat

Years ago I learned the tip of baking with a soda instead of using oil in cake recipes.

By switching out my egg in my recipe with two egg whites, I “saved” almost 100 calories, reduced to ZERO grams of fat, and ZERO grams of cholesterol.

Using a sugar free flavored gelatin will also help cut the calories in your flavored desserts.

I thought about doing a few drink recipes using the TEN products to share with you various ways to enjoy the full flavor of a regular soda without the calories. Neh…. let’s eat a low calorie dessert like a strawberry cake! Experiment with your recipes using one of the Four TEN Calorie DPSG products such as:

I chose to go with a round cake pan, you can use a rectangular, square, or even cupcakes to make your poke cake. Once your cake is baked and completely cool, poke holes in the cake with a large round object such as a chopstick.

Once you have prepared the flavored gelatin mixture, slowly pour it over the holes in the cake. I normally use a cookie sheet to pour the gelatin over the cakes to catch anything that is soaked through the cake to the bottom. NOTE: Use a LARGE spatula to remove the cakes so you don’t “tear up” the bottoms when you remove from the cookie sheet.

Since I am doing a layered cake, I removed part of the top to level it out to stack my cakes. Look at the gelatin that soaked through my “pokes!”

Low Sugar Healthy Banana Bread

This recipe doesn&rsquot have much sugar in it. Usually banana bread has a ton, but I scaled it way back to keep it as healthy as possible. You won&rsquot notice the fat being gone but you will notice it&rsquos less sweet. It didn&rsquot bother me at all but if you ever want some more sweetness after you bake it you can add a drizzle of honey! I liked the less sweet version because I had a slice of banana bread and some greek yogurt for breakfast and it was a great way to start out my day. Usually I eat banana bread and feel a little guilty&helliplike I&rsquom eating cake! But this Skinny Banana Bread is guilt free!

(High-Protein) Healthy Bread Pudding (Low-fat)

Bread pudding: sweet, sticky, syrupy goodness. Every bite is the perfect balance of creamy sauce, chewy bread and just a hint of crispy, crunchy bits of baked crust. It’s every carbohydrate-lover’s dream dessert, and with bread in the title you could even be forgiven for thinking that it could be “healthy” (minus all of the sugar, of course). Well, it’s time to combine dreams with the reality that I have a high-protein, low-fat, lower-carbohydrate recipe to share with you for my very own Bread Pudding and it’s free of added fats and sugars! Weekend baking project, anyone? This would make a perfect dessert or even a great addition to a weekend breakfast or brunch!

First of all, I have a couple of confessions for you:

1) I don’t didn’t even like bread pudding (not until I made my own version, that is). Has anyone else had the experience of only liking a certain dish if you prepare it yourself? Or perhaps only liking a version of a dish prepared by one particular person, i.e. your spouse or your mom? Has anyone gotten their kids on board with eating foods they ordinarily wouldn’t touch, just by involving them in the preparation process such as picking out foods at the grocery store and/or helping them to prepare the meal? My (now) four-year-old (!) gobbled up some Flourless Chocolate Chip Zucchini Oat Brownies from Ambitious Kitchen today – he was the chief (supervised) Zucchini Grater and Chocolate Chip Sprinkler (two very important jobs for this recipe). It turns out that I’m very much like a four-year-old in this regard – I gobbled up this recipe where I have turned up my nose at others’ offerings of bread pudding. I don’t even give bread pudding a second look if it shows up in a dessert menu (I’m scanning for cheesecake instead!). And that’s not about to change now that I know I can make a much better-for-me version at home!

2) This post has been 3+ months in the making! This recipe even pre-dates the actual Golden Graham Girl blog itself. Back in April, I attended an authentic Cajun Cooking Class hosted by a wonderful Louisianan couple, Carla Loup Greene and Todd Greene (one of the many great things about the expatriate community we’re experiencing in South Korea is the willingness of other expats to share the cuisine of their home countries – we haven’t come up with a truly representative Canadian dish and we don’t want to embarrass ourselves by making poutine). I learned how to make (or at least attempt) a lot of great, flavourful dishes. And not only did I learn how easy it is to make bread pudding, but I also learned that maybe it’s not such a bad thing that I’ve bypassed it in the past: the original recipe is pretty heavy duty from a calories/fat/sugar perspective, featuring white bread, butter, heavy cream, whole milk, whole eggs AND refined sugar (all things that make it taste absolutely wonderful, but all things that can be hard on your system and would make it a once in-a-blue-moon kind of treat, for me at least). And you know that I’m all about advocating for a balanced approach with regular indulgences but I also like that there are substitutions to recipes that can make them a little less indulgent and therefore a little more frequent.

So, what have I done to update this dish? I swapped a multi-grain bread for the white bread (any whole grain or low-carbohydrate bread of your choosing will do), replaced the dairy (butter, cream AND milk) with creamy yet low-calorie unsweetened almond milk, substituted just egg whites for the whole eggs and added in the sweetness and “thickness” using a flavoured whey protein powder. The remaining seasonings (spices and sea salt) are the same as the original recipe, and the raisins are optional as always (I don’t claim to understand you raisin-haters but I know you’re out there. I personally love the sweet, plump juicy raisins and the flavour and texture they impart to this dish, but if you’re not a raisin fan in the base case, I’m not out to convert you). The recipe is now so low-fat that you might consider serving it alongside eggs (and maybe even bacon) or topping it with whipped cream (dairy or coconut cream) or butter (or nut butter)!

Nothing but grapes and sunshine! I’m a lover – how about you?

Just like the original recipe, you’ll need to plan ahead for this recipe. Leave the slices of bread out overnight to dry – you want slightly stale, dry bread to maximize its ability to soak up the wet ingredients and get really dense and flavourful. In a pinch, you can also cut or tear the bread into cubes and lightly toast in a toaster oven or regular oven to dry them out.

Day-old dry bread cut into cubes and ready to be turned into pudding!

As soon as you have dry bread, you’re ready to roll with this recipe:

Healthy Bread Pudding (High-protein, Low-fat, Refined sugar-free)

  • Servings: 4
  • Time: Overnight + 30 minutes prep + 20-25 minutes baking
  • Difficulty: easy

Author: The Golden Graham Girl

4 slices whole- or multi-grain and/or low-carbohydrate bread, dried
1 cup (240g or 240mL) unsweetened almond milk
2 large egg whites (80g or 80mL – this is approximately 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites)
1 scoop (28g) vanilla protein powder – I used Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder*
1/4 cup (40g) raisins
1 tsp (5g) cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2g) nutmeg
1/4 tsp (1g) sea salt

1. Preheat a conventional oven to 350F (185C) or a convection oven to 325F (165C).
2. Grease a standard loaf pan with coconut oil, butter or non-stick cooking spray OR line with parchment paper.
3. Tear or cut the bread into small (one-inch or two-centimeter) cubes and place in a large bowl. Set aside.
4. Whisk the remaining ingredients in a separate medium bowl until fully combined.
5. If using raisins, let the mixture sit at room temperature for 15 minutes to allow the raisins to absorb some of the moisture and “plump up.” If not using raisins proceed to step 6.
6. Pour the mixture onto the bread cubes and stir to combine. Allow the mixture to sit at room temperature for an additional 15-30 minutes, until the bread has absorbed most of the liquid.
7. Transfer the bread mixture to the prepared loaf pan and bake until the center of the bread pudding is set but still soft, 20-25 minutes.
8. Let cool in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy as a dessert, a side or just on its own! This dish pairs beautifully with an egg dish for breakfast or brunch or can be served as is or with toppings of your choice for a dessert. I personally love a touch of butter and a drizzle of sugar-free syrup.

Baked Chicken Parmesan | Skinnytaste

An Italian classic lightened up. Baking the chicken cutlet as opposed to frying really lightens up the dish while still remaining moist and full of flavor. Serve this over pasta or with a large salad to keep it on the lighter side.

This recipe is from the archives which first made its appearance back in 2009. I decided to update the photo because my photo skills were lacking back then.

We all love this dish in my home, it’s perfect for a weeknight yet good enough to serve to company. This is also how I bake my chicken cutlets if you want it without the cheese and sauce. Kid friendly and delicious make this tonight!!
