Desserts are a perfect way to end a meal. But all our loved desserts or sweets translate into increased body weight. If you are looking to shed some, then these are a strict no-no.
What is it about desserts that make them fattening? The loads of refined sugar, fat rich milk and butter/ghee that are used in making them. These take the count of calories present in your favourite desserts anywhere between 200 to 535!
But you can still please your sweet tooth without working hard later on to lose the extra gained weight. We are talking about low calorie desserts that are equally delicious and satisfying as the traditionally made recipes.
The desserts listed below have calorie counts of 100 or even less. Enjoy!
