Dessert is one of those simple things in life that can bring back so many memories. Unfortunately, eating sugar and fat after dinner can take a serious toll on your waistline. Secret diet tip: These recipes are healthy enough, and packed with enough protein to even use as your breakfast. Just remember portion size and you can have your cake and eat it too!
