A starting point to find something sweet and good to enjoy as a snack even while we are engaged in the diet mission
One of the first things that get rid of low-calorie diets is sweets. Yet, after a few days, that mad desire to stop the diet and eat a whole cake rises, perhaps covered with whipped cream. Don't do it (don't even do it when you're not on a diet!). But for avoid reaching these peaks of gluttony, why not pamper our palate with small low-calorie whims that look so much like desserts?
We thought about five spoonfuls ideal for enjoying a moment of rest from the rigor of steamed foods, scarce condiments and protein snacks. But before proceeding with the preparation of the recipes, a small tip. Choose these sweets like mid-morning or afternoon snack on alternate days so as not to make that dessert become an indispensable habit.
Ricotta and cocoa
The simplest preparation is a cow's milk ricotta to which you will add a teaspoon of bitter cocoa. Mix well until you get a cream which you complete with a flaked almond without peel.
From Greece with love
Prepare a classic omelette with two eggs without adding salt, sugar or butter. Once the preparation is finished, leave to cool, spread the surface with a teaspoon of honey and complete with the peeled and diced strawberries.
Prepare the dough with two eggs, 4 tablespoons of low-fat yogurt, 3 tablespoons of oat bran, cinnamon and brown sugar or fructose (very little is needed). Heat the non-stick pan and cook without butter. Complete with a teaspoon of maple syrup.
The ice cream
To prepare a good ice cream with no added sugar, blend 250 g of ripe strawberries without reducing them to the liquid state. Add 100 ml of skim milk and three tablespoons of low-fat yogurt to the bowl. Leave to cool in the freezer, stirring occasionally. If you prefer a creamier effect, prepare the mixture with strawberries and lean ricotta.
