Sweet Treats: Light Chocolate Desserts

Treat yourself to these decadent desserts with the health benefits of cacao, without the heavy calories.
Chocolate shavings Guilt-Free Chocolate

Of all the treats out there, chocolate takes the cake. Study after study shows that its main ingredient, cacao, may help protect your heart, lower your blood pressure, reduce your risk of diabetes, and more. But most chocolate desserts also contain copious amounts of butter, sugar, and other waistline-widening ingredients, which explains why some top out at nearly 1,100 calories a serving. To get the health benefits without the heft, whip up one of these light but luscious sweets. Each delivers a big hit of rich, choco­laty flavor for about 220 calories. So go ahead, have a (guilt-free) slice of heaven.
