How to keep enjoying your favourite cakes without gaining weight

How many times did you skip some delicious dessert just because you’re trying to lose weight and there’s no place for that sweet calorie bomb in your diet? Well, that’s perfectly fine but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this sweet pleasure ever again. There are plenty of recipes for equally delicious desserts which are low in fat and calories.

Low-fat Chocolate Bundt Cake

Chocolate cakes are usually “off the menu” for people who take care of their diet properly, since these desserts are often loaded with sugar and fat. However, this special type of Bundt Cake has few modifications in its recipe and these extra ingredients make this cake perfectly safe to eat no matter how careful you are with your diet.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup wheat germ
  • 1/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup (2 scoops) WHEY+ chocolate protein isolate
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup (about 1/2 can) reduced-salt cannellini beans
  • 1/4 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of the most famous and most adored cakes in the world, but the regular recipe for it isn’t a best friend to your summer body. It contains rather high amounts of fat, especially in the crust, so the best way to make low-fat cheesecake is to use light, fat-free cream cheese for the cheese part of the cake, and to cut down the crust as much as you can. Use less butter for the crust and cover only the bottom part of the pan with the dough, so a cake won’t have the crust on the sides. If you want to go full low-fat, remove crust completely and make crustless cheesecake!

Ingredients

  • 18 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, room temp.
  • 2/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup granulated stevia (or other sweeteners)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, divided
  • 1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips

Key lime pie

In order to cut some unwanted calories, for this delicious cake change some of its regular ingredients. For example, instead of regular milk use fat-free condensed one or almond and coconut milk. Instead of adding sugar, opt for a tablespoon of honey!

Ingredients

  • 2½ cups prepared graham cracker crust
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup key lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
