14 Most Guilt-Free DessertsPosted on Feb 14th 2011 1:00PM by That's Fit Editors
Here are the 14 most guilt-free desserts from "The Women's Health Diet."
100. Best Ice Cream
Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop Coffee Ice Cream (one scoop)
Just one scoop of ice cream can be a sugar land mine, especially when it's packed with swirls and bits of candy. This Ben & Jerry's flavor keeps the calories and sugar in check without
being plain ol' vanilla.
190 calories, 3 g protein, 18 g carbs (0 g fiber, 16 g sugars), 11 g fat, 50 mg sodium
101. Best Ice Cream Novelty
Dairy Queen Ice Cream Sandwich
Somehow DQ has sandwiched ice cream between two chocolate wafers and made a treat that is no worse than a single scoop of ice cream. Don't ask questions; just be thankful.
190 calories, 4 g protein, 31 g carbs (1 g fiber, 18 g sugars), 5 g fat
102. Best Ice Cream Topping
Cold Stone Creamery Blueberries (15 grams)
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants -- and add an intense hit of flavor. And since Cold Stone Creamery offers them as a healthy mix-in option, there's absolutely no need to add
candy-bar chunks to your ice cream.
10 calories, 0 g protein, 2 g carbs (0 g fiber, 2 g sugars), 0 g fat
103. Best Frozen Yogurt
Ben & Jerry's Vanilla Low-Fat Frozen Yogurt (one scoop)
Frozen yogurt carries less fat than ice cream, but to compensate, processors often jack up the sugar levels. This version is just the balance you're looking for.
130 calories, 4 g protein, 25 g carbs (0 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 1.5 g fat, 70 mg sodium
104. Best Sorbet
Macaroni Grill Italian Sorbetto
Made with lemons and raspberries, this dessert is a cool way to get your vitamin C fix.
150 calories, 0 g protein, 37 g carbs (0 g fiber, N/A sugars), 0 g fat, 5 mg sodium
105. Best Ice
Culver's Lemon Ice (one scoop)
Ice and flavored syrup are all that goes into this summer day salvation with a surprisingly modest amount of sugar.
84 calories, 0 g protein, 21 g carbs (0 g fiber, 18 g sugars), 0 g fat, 4 g sodium
106. Best Root Beer Float
A&W Root Beer Float (small, 16 ounces)
No one does root beer better than A&W, and the same goes for floats. Ruby Tuesday's float, by comparison, has 169 extra calories and almost three times as much fat.
330 calories, 2 g protein, 70 g carbs (0 g fiber, 57 g sugars), 5 g fat, 100 mg sodium
107. Best Sundae
Uno Chicago Grill Mini Bananas Foster (168 g)
Sure, there are sundaes with less fat and sugar, but do they come drizzled with a dose of rum? Nope. And since the portion size is under control, it's a smart indulgence.
350 calories, 4 g protein, 46 g carbs (1 g fiber, 36 g sugars), 17 g fat, 140 mg sodium
108. Best Brownie Sundae
Uno Chicago Grill Mini Hot Chocolate Brownie Sundae
A brownie sundae is basically two desserts in one. Uno's mini portion lets you enjoy the combo while avoiding a calorie crisis.
370 calories, 4 g protein, 54 g carbs (2 g fiber, 38 g sugars), 16 g fat, 1950 mg sodium
109. Best Banana Split
Sonic's Junior Banana Split (134 grams)
Do you really need three helpings of ice cream in your banana split? Of course not. This one governs the heavy scooping and provides a dose of banana-based potassium.
210 calories, 2 g protein, 37 g carbs (1 g fiber, 26 g sugars), 6 g fat, 90 mg sodium
110. Best Cheesecake
Schlotzky's New York–Style Cheesecake (one slice)
Packed with cream cheese, cheesecake is often described as sinfully good, but a sinner you don't have to be. This slice from Schlotzky's has 315 fewer calories and 12 grams less saturated fat than Cheesecake Factory's original cheesecake.
350 calories, 6 g protein, 30 g carbs (1 g fiber, 19 g sugars), 23 g fat, 200 mg sodium
111. Best Chocolate Cake
Jack in the Box Chocolate Overload Cake (one slice)
An intense hit of chocolate doesn't mean a mandatory overload of calories and fat. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal than this quick treat.
300 calories, 4 g protein, 57 g carbs (2 g fiber, 34 g sugars), 7 g fat, 350 mg sodium
112. Best Apple Pie
McDonald's Baked Hot Apple Pie
More of a pocket than a traditional apple pie, it's tasty and carries a modest amount of calories compared to other versions.
250 calories, 2 g protein, 32 g carbs (4 g fiber, 13 g sugars), 13 g fat, 170 mg sodium
113. Best Key Lime Pie
Chili's Sweet Shot Key Lime Pie
Served in a shot glass, this is a great alternative to ordering a whole
slice. Calories will add up fast if you get a Sweet Shot Sampler, though, so
resist the urge.
240 calories, 4 g protein, 30 g carbs (0 g fiber, N/A sugars), 12 g fat, 75 mg sodium
