With Thanksgiving only a week away, a perfect dessert recipe is worth its weight in gold. The holidays are about spending time with our loved ones and it’s a big reason I love the winter season so much. If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing better than having all of your family together, but I’m not complaining about eating some amazing food, either. There’s basically nothing I dislike about the holidays, except the amount of guilt I feel the morning after a large meal. Unfortunately, calories never take a day off, but that doesn’t mean you have to make any huge sacrifices. Dessert is probably the best and worst thing to happen to someone with a constant sweet tooth, but luckily there’s an alternative to that 750 calorie slice of pie.
Fruit Pizza is a combination of fruit and a sugar cookie crust, with a cream cheese sauce layer in between. Not to say that this is a zero-calorie solution, but it’s definitely lighter. Here’s a recipe for a homemade sugar cookie crust and cream cheese topping, but feel free to make fruit substitutions!
Quick, easy, and delicious! I don’t have all the answers, but if you can cut a corner or two, it’s better than nothing, right? I’m not saying this is 200 calories, but it’s definitely a little healthier than the norm. This is my go-to dessert for almost any occasion. This healthier alternative is a perfect dessert if you’re counting your calories, but still want to feel like you’re still eating a dessert.
