Dessert is essential to finish up a meal, but we are usually having the wrong desserts. This problem is more rampant in developed countries where people have a lot of money to burn on foods that donâ€™t provide them with nutrition but do give them a lot of calories.
The problem is with the metabolism of the human body. Our body keeps the fats that it consumes so as to use it in times of difficulty thats why dieting is difficult. Desserts can provide a significant amount of fats. However, since desserts are important parts of our meal, we consume a lot more fat than our body can afford and this is what piles on the weight. Today, this is a nationwide problem in countries like America.
Let us take a look at some ideas for healthy low fat desserts.
1. Very little can go wrong if you have fruits for dessert. Choose fruits that are well and ripe and you will have something just as succulent as any other gourmet dessert. You can prepare fruit in several ways, fruit salads being the most common, but there are various other recipes that you can use to make fruit preparations. Simple things can greatly enhance their taste, like adding yogurt to a mix of fruits.
Different tastes can be created. Since fruits can be both sweet and sour, you could mix them and get a very unique taste. Try bananas and strawberries to make an interesting contrast in tastes. The best part would be that the fat content of such a preparation would be very low.
2. Whipped cream is a great dessert idea. Add some whipped cream to a bowlful of banana-strawberry mixture and you have a fantastic dessert.
The best way to make healthy whipped cream is to do it yourself. Make it using a boat motor with cold skim milk. You will have a fantastic mixture. You can get very soft whipped cream this way.
3. Many nutritionists say that all desserts lack in protein. But you can remedy this situation too if you could add a protein mix to your dessert. Protein mixes are easily available. Add them to your dessert to enhance its nutritional value.
4. Gelatin is permissible too, provided you add gelatin that is derived from all natural sources. Unflavored gelatin is usually prepared naturally.
