Baked Apples

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

· 1 medium apple (I love the taste of Honey Crisp apples)

· 1/4 tsp. granulated sugar

Direction: 

  1. To make this yummy dessert, first preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Core the apple by taking a knife and cutting a circle around the core, and then pull it out.
  3. Place the apple in a casserole dish and pour water over the it.
  4. Then sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Bake in the oven until the apple is tender, for about 45 minutes.
  6. Top the apple with fat-free Reddi-wip.
  7. Enjoy!

Crave for a sundae? Make it!

There are lots of ways to make dessert healthy! If you make
fruit the main part of the dish, you can make a dessert that doesn’t have tons
of calories. One I especially love is a play on the classic sundae.

Directions:

  1. Peel a banana
  2. top it with a few teaspoons of fat-free cool whip
  3. two teaspoons of chocolate syrup
  4. some nuts (for a little crunch and added protein!)
  5. fresh fruit like blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries

This “sundae” has just enough chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth, but the fresh fruits make it a yummy and healthy choice—you won’t even miss the ice cream or candy toppings!

The Flavor Quest!

This summer, I know for a fact, it’s going to be BLAZING HOT! Why? Well it’s Houston for goodness sake!
All of us are going to find something cold to eat; ice cream, snow cone, etc. However, we all know that all those goodies comes with A WHOLE BUNCH of sugar, which leads to gaining weight and getting almost all of us….well…moody.
Instead of getting those brand name ice cream (Blue Bell, etc.), why not get some nonfat yogurt?
ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU GET. (Remember: Eating what you REALLY want is okay, as long as you know not to go overboard or get more than you need.)

 

Here are some stores you can get yogurt at in our area:
