Dainty Desserts

We all need to treat ourselves with a treat now and then. Sometimes big desserts are very heavy and we tend to eat too much. Lighter fare desserts are fun to nibble on and you don’t tend to eat a big a piece. Fruit-based desserts are also lighter than the creamy chocolaty ones. When picking out desserts try to focus more on fruit. Also look at your recipes for one’s that can be made smaller like mini-cheesecakes made in muffin tins or mini cupcakes.
