25 Low-Calorie Desserts to Buy Under 150 Calories

Yes, you CAN have dessert every day! Here are a few options to keep your dessert low calorie.

While it may seem counterintuitive to eat dessert when you're trying to lose weight, eating dessert can actually help you stay on track! Instead of completely depriving yourself of a food you love, having low-calorie desserts that are portioned out for you can help you stay motivated to keep up with your health goals—and stay within your calorie limit!

"Incorporating dessert daily or a few times a week if it's something you enjoy can actually help you stay on track with your dietary goals," says registered dietitian Maryann Walsh, MFN, RD, CDE. "No matter what sort of way of eating you may follow (counting calories, low carb, low fat, etc. etc.), if you enjoy having dessert or a sweet treat, you can absolutely enjoy on a regular basis, even daily!"

However, this doesn't mean you always have to choose the "healthiest" option. Unless, of course, that is what you desire to have. But for some, having dessert means enjoying a decadent, sugary treat they love.

"If you want to enjoy decadent, full-fat, full-sugar desserts or treats, the key is to practice portion control, usually mindfully enjoying a small piece or a few bites of something decadent is all it takes to get the experience," Walsh tells us.

So the question is: what kind of dessert are you craving? If you portion it out and include it in your health goals, you can have it every day. It's just a matter of choosing the type of dessert that is worth it to you.

"There are so many options available, so you can surely find something that is a good fit. And by not depriving yourself you are less likely to overindulge in sweet treats and desserts on weekends and special occasions," explains Walsh.

Here are 25 low-calorie desserts to buy, all under 150 calories!
