20 Quick and Healthy Dessert Ideas

fruit cupMr. Cafe Kim and I don't generally eat dessert at home; if we do, it's usually a square or two of dark chocolate or a piece of fruit. It's not that we don't love sweets—we do! Especially Mr. Cafe Kim. But we try to limit desserts because the calories really add up. Here are 20 healthy dessert ideas for you and your family:

  • Grilled pineapple or peaches
  • Frozen grapes
  • Low-sugar sorbet
  • Jello
  • Fat-free pudding
  • Healthy banana bread
  • Animal crackers
  • Fruit cups
  • Applesauce with sprinkled cinnamon
  • Yogurt parfaits (yogurt layered with granola and fruit)
  • Strawberry and pineapple kabobs
  • Apple slices and sugar-free caramel dip
  • Frozen orange slices
  • Fruit salsa
  • Watermelon
  • Berry smoothies
  • Banana split (with low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of ice cream)
  • Graham crackers
  • Yogurt fruit salad
  • Low-sugar cereal

Do you have anything to add to the list? Which healthy desserts does your family enjoy?
