Health Tip: Preparing a Better Dessert

-- Desserts don't have to be off-limits for people who want to eat healthier, says Johns Hopkins University.

When preparing desserts, choose baked-good recipes made with skim milk, low-fat cream cheese or yogurt. Using bananas and applesauce as add-ins can also cut down on unhealthy oils and fats.

Additionally, the university recommends ensuring that your sweets contain lots of vitamins and fiber, to help avoid spikes in blood sugar.
