A small portion of a favorite—say, one-fourth cup ice cream with fruit, one small piece of dark chocolate, two small cookies, or a thin slice of angel food cake is a healthy dessert option. For a yummy sweet treat that’s full of protein, not fat, whip a little low fat ricotta cheese with a whisk until it’s light and mousse-like, then stir in lots of frozen mixed berries. Add a drizzling of agave nectar (you’ll find this in the sugar and baking aisle at the market; it’s sweeter than honey but has a more liquid consistency and won’t spike your blood sugar as severely as honey can).
