As summer begins to creep in on us, I'm sure a lot of you are becoming a bit more conscious about food than you were during the winter (or, as I like to call it, hibernation) season. Many people turn to workouts to ramp up their fitness (if you're looking for a full body workout in 25 minutes, check this one out!), while forgetting one very important factor: Exercise + Nutrition = Fitness. Whether we like it or not, we've got to start finding healthier ways to satisfy our sweet teeth!

In an effort to put a smile on your face without putting the pounds on your belly, here are a few delicious dessert recipes along with calorie information and weight watchers points! They're all kid-tested and man-approved! Check out my diet philosophy page for an explanation of foods to optimize, limit, and avoid and find more delicious-yet-healthy recipes!
