Hi guys, you're all doing really well so far, congratulations! You should consider moving out of the intro section and coming to join some of us over in Personal Progress! You could start a group thread there for yourselves or individual ones
As for dessert ideas, some of my favourite things are:
Skinny Cow icecream sticks - I think they only have about 70 calories per serve and they are delicious!
Billabong Icecream Cups - They are also around 70 calories per serve, but they are smaller than the Skinny Cow icecreams. (The Billabong ones come with sprinkles though, and who doesn't love them?!)
Depending on the temperature, a hot or iced latte. I LOVE my coffee. If I want a hot one, I used the nescafe latte sticks and add a sprinkle of chocolate dusting (available from the coffee aisle at most supermarkets) over the top. The little bit of chocolate powder makes it seem much more indulgent. For an iced latte, I mix 1 teaspoon of coffee, half a teaspoon of sugar, trim milk and several icecubes and then I blend it. Delicious!
Diet jelly - I love this when I have sweet cravings and just want to eat and eat. Each serve only has about 7 calories, so even if you go crazy and have 3 serves, you're not going to do much damage.
Mini pavlova - I buy the mini pavlova shells sometimes and add lite whipped cream and fresh berries and kiwi fruit. Yum!
Fresh fruit salad - add anything you like
Hope this helps!
