I try to eat healthy during the day, but after dinner I always crave dessert (ice cream, cookies, you name it). The meal just doesn't feel "complete" without it. I don't want to give up my nightly dessert, but I'm also trying to lose weight. Is there a healthier way I can satisfy my sweet tooth?

    It's summer-time, that means there is alot of great tasting FRUIT to be had for dessert! Strawberries, cherries, blueberries, watermelons, peaches! Tastes great and good for you too. I try to buy organic when I can, especially with peaches which I hear tend to be heavy on pesticides.

    I love fresh fruit as a summer dessert! Also, try putting red grapes in the freezer and it makes for a really yummy treat on a hot day.

    I love the coconut milk "ice cream" from So Delicious. It's a healthy fat that's sweetened with agave instead of sugar and it's WAY better than full fat ice cream with lots of flavours.

    Just made an amazing healthy dessert recipe that I highly recommend. Super simple: Cut up a watermelon, throw it in the blender, add a little lemon juice, mint and basil. Pour the mix in a baking pan then put it in the freezer. After an hour, take it out and mash it up (so it doesn't freeze into a totally solid mass). Then put it back in the freezer for another two hours. You'll have a delicious frozen slushy dessert!

    I lost my yen for ice cream when I switched to frozen wild blueberries with a wee bit of artificial sweetener and a splash of orange juice. Makes for a rich, delicious, nicely textured dessert! And the antioxidants? Off the map!

    Sometimes if I want a light summertime dessert, I make a mousse with skim ricotta cheese, lemon zest, cinnamon, and agave (you can also use honey or maple syrup as natural sweeteners) and mix it with fruit. It's really good! Plus you get vitamins from the fruit and calcium from the ricotta.

    Make juice ice pops - you can use any juice you want and put it into ice pop molds. It's sweet and still good for you! :)

    well you can never fail with sticking some fruit and ice cubes into a blender and making a smoothie.i dont know what you would consider healthy but i did find that if yo microwave a waffle so it's soft and add a little ice cream and fresh fruit on top it's really good.and you could try eating granola clusters they are supposed to be good for you. me and my grandma used to snack on honey nut cheerios after dinner for a healthy snack.

    To get rid of a chocolate fix, you could put together dark chocolate (helps skin), peanut butter (protein), and oats (fiber), and shape them into balls, put them in the fridge, and you have yummy chocolate-oat cookies!
