7 Healthy Packaged Desserts Under 250 Calories

Our health and nutrition editors vetted hundreds of submissions, soliciting expert advice from nutritionist judges Karen Ansel, R.D., Rachel Meltzer Warren, R.D., and Kerry Nveille, R.D.&mdashand these were our favorite sweet successes.

With fudge, candy pieces, and a brownie base, it's a full-blown extravagance that won't bust your calorie budget.

Per sundae: 130 cal, 3 g fat (1.5 g sat), 23 g carbs, 13 g sugar, 55 mg sodium, <1 g fiber, 2 g protein

For a fruit-based bar, this tropical-flavored frozen sweet is surprisingly creamy and has a carb count you can feel good about.

Per bar: 60 cal, 0 fat, 15 g carbs, 11 g sugar, 0 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein

They had us at Liz Lemon (RIP, 30 Rock), but there's more: A serving of this zesty, citrus-flavored Greek fro-yo boasts plenty of protein.

Per 1/2 cup: 180 cal, 4.5 g fat (2.5 g sat), 29 g carbs, 21 g sugar, 70 mg sodium, 0 g fiber, 6 g protein

Is there anything dark chocolate can't do? It releases feel-good endorphins, can lower blood pressure, fills you up, and pays bills (okay, we made that last one up).

Per 5 pieces: 210 cal, 13 g fat (8 g sat), 24 g carbs, 19 g sugar, 0 mg sodium, 3 g fiber, 2 g protein

Decadence comes by way of ganache, and it certainly gilds the lily when you remember that these have less fat than other similar cones.

Per cone: 160 cal, 4.5 g fat (2.5 g sat), 27 g carbs, 16 g sugar, 85 mg sodium, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein

Veggies in an ice pop? You won't mind the added nutrition (cleverly blended with fruit) as you lick up those extra vitamins and minerals.

Per bar: 60 cal, 0 g fat, 14 g carbs, 14 g sugar, 25 mg sodium, 1 g fiber, 0 g protein

The special process that whips this dairy delight into an ultra-rich, gelato-like state also helps it have half the fat and a third of the cals of many other regular ice creams.

Per 1/2 cup: 100 cal, 3.5 g fat (2 g sat), 15 g carbs, 13 g sugar, 30 mg sodium, <1 g fiber, 3 g protein


The 7 Best Healthy Desserts in Your Supermarket, According to Nutritionists

Dessert's your kryptonite, you say? Never fear. We asked our favorite team of nutritionists&mdashKaren Ansel, R.D., Maureen Callahan, R.D., and Rachel Meltzer Warren, R.D.&mdashto name the best new sweets to hit grocery stores this year. These indulgences won't take a toll on your waistline&mdashand every single one of them contains chocolate.

We worked hard to craft this blend of dried cranberries, chocolate-coated raisins, and roasted cashews and almonds, ensuring that every 140-calorie handful hits all your pleasure centers&mdashwhile the healthy fats, fiber, and protein curb a sugar crash.

Like a supercharged trail mix, this snack bag combines the crunch of cashews with chocolate-covered fruit pieces&mdashspecifically, cranberries plumped with 100 percent blueberry juice for double the antioxidant power.

Nondairy doesn't have to mean nontasty. This milk-free beverage goes down easy, with a satisfyingly thick shake-like consistency and cocoa taste. You won't miss out on nutrients, either: With 45 percent of your daily value of calcium, it's a great way to bone up on this skeleton-strengthening mineral.

If you ordered this at a restaurant, it would have "death by" somewhere in the name and about 10 times the calories. This personal-size version has all the peanut butter extravagance in a portion-controlled cup, so you can dive in and still walk away feeling like a champ.

You'd need willpower of steel to stop popping these six-ingredient wonders&mdashbut nothing in the amazing little energy balls is bad for you. They have fiber and protein, are GMO-and dairy-free, and use fair-trade chocolate.

Plenty of vegan ice creams use added sugar to make up for the missing fat, but this pint has considerably less of the sweet stuff than its dairy version&mdashnot that you'll notice the difference when you're scarfing down the brownie pieces.

When nothing but chocolate will do, this will save the day! How do two chocolate cookie wafers and a delectable fudge coating sound? With a middle layer of low-fat vanilla ice cream to balance things out.

When it comes to healthy homemade frozen desserts, two-ingredient vegan chocolate ice cream is only the beginning. From ice cream to popsicles to 30-calorie froyo cupcakes (yes, it's true), there are so many ways to give in to your sweet tooth without regretting it later. Plus, as the weather gets warmer, what's better than sinking your teeth into a cool, refreshing treat? Read on for the 23 best healthy frozen dessert recipes you can make all Summer long.

Dessert Energy Balls

�ssert energy bites are delicious, nutritious, and simple to make! Start with a base of oat flour or almond flour and unsweetened cocoa power, add mini chocolate chips, almond or peanut butter, a little bit of maple syrup and mix together,” says Michalczyk.

Once thoroughly mixed through, use your hands and roll into little balls. “These are fun because kids can help make them, they are customizable to whatever ingredients you would like to incorporate and are a great portion size for a small sweet treat,” she says.


"This is a great, simple way to make plain fruit a bit more appealing. It especially works great for picky little kids."
