Desserts under 300 calories: Recipes from Skinny Desserts

Low-calorie puddings aren’t always the most exciting dishes, but these desserts under 300 calories from new cookbook Skinny Desserts, a new cookbook by Kathryn Bruton really hit the sweet spot.

With clever swaps, reduced sugar levels and the inclusion of extra nutritious ingredients like greek yogurt and fruit, you can create healthier options to round off a meal that still pack all of the flavour you’d expect from a traditional treat. Plus, you might even squeeze in one or two of your five-a-day in the process – bonus!

From a stunning fruit salad to a fresh, zesty cheesecake, a seriously comforting crumble and even a light, fluffy cake, scroll on for the ultimate line-up of puds that will wow your family and friends with their flavour and their calorie count. Top with ice cream, custard of cream for an additional indulgence, or enjoy them as they are – either way, extra helpings are certainly essential…
