10 Low-Calorie Desserts for Your 4th of July Cookout
After an indulgent day of feasting on barbecued ribs, ooey-gooey mac and cheese, burgers, and baked beans, there’s only one way to conclude the classic Fourth of July cookout: With flutes of bubbly and a low-calorie treat. This year, skip the creamy flag cakes, and sweet, buttery pies, and let dessert be your chance to cut back a little and exercise some portion control.
Serving low-calorie desserts after your oversized grilled dinner doesn't mean you need to resort to store-bought treats. Instead, you can easily limit the calories by preparing something from scratch. Why not try making a batch of super simple frozen ice pops, or a tangy, refreshing, fat-free Key lime sorbet, or even a summer fruit cobbler with a healthy granola topping? We're not willing to compromise on flavor with our desserts, so you can rest assured that these low-calorie treats really are nothing short of amazing.
Don’t leave your guests wanting more, and don't force them to leave your party uncomfortable full: Fulfill their sweet tooth craving with these wonderful, low-calorie treats, which are both tasty and refreshing. And don’t forget that ice pops are even better when dipped in prosecco: The ultimate boozy, sweet, two-in-one summer holiday experience.
