Healthy Strategies for Dessert
Reduce the amount you make. Make cupcakes for individual portions.
Serve less, eat less. Use smaller plates to fool the eye.
Substitute lighter ingredients. You can often use egg whites or egg substitutes for a substantial cut in calories and fat.
Be fat-free when you can. Fat-free cream cheese works fine in recipes for lighter cheesecakes and icing.
Think before you eat. If you know dessert is going to be important, decrease what you eat before it.
