When it comes to sticking to your healthy eating routine, sweet tooth cravings can be one of your biggest roadblocks.

Indulge in your favorite desserts made healthy from the Nutrisystem menu.
At Nutrisystem, our entire mission is centered around the idea that losing weight shouldn’t mean having to forego the enjoyment of delicious foods—and desserts are amongst them. Honestly, depriving yourself may lead to disaster by making your plan difficult to adhere to. Instead, being able to satisfy your sweet tooth with some of these lighter versions of dessert favorites is a great way to stay on track while still having the chance to indulge.
Stock up on these three must-try desserts from the Nutrisystem menu:
When you think of classic dessert favorites, strawberry shortcake is almost always on the list. However, the trouble with traditional strawberry shortcake is—despite the fact that it has plenty of fresh berries—it contains an awful lot of sugar. Plus, it is rich with fat-filled ingredients like butter and heavy cream. Fortunately, with our healthier version, you can indulge in the sweet taste of strawberry shortcake without any guilt. These bakery-style cupcakes are stuffed with a creamy whipped filling that tastes indulgent but is much lighter than the classic heavy cream topping. Each cupcake has just 130 calories and less than four grams of fat. They also contain three grams of fiber and five grams of protein for a filling snack that fuels your day.
If you’re looking to get your chocolate fix, then you’re going to want to try this chocolate cupcake stuffed with creamy vanilla filling. It’s a rich-tasting dessert that also happens to be a good source of fiber and protein. The chocolate and cream combination makes it feel incredibly indulgent. However, this decadent dessert has just 130 calories and five grams of fat. Who knew that something so sweet and fudgy could be diet-friendly? It’s a much healthier choice than the heavily processed store-bought baked goods which might be tempting you!
Craving a classic campfire treat? This unique spin on s’mores takes the fireside-favorite combination of graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate and transforms then into a hand-held pie. It’s a delicious dessert that you can enjoy on-the-go! Though it might taste too good to be true, this dessert is actually a good source of dietary fiber. It also contains five grams of protein, making it a healthier choice than assembling a s’more on your own. Plus, you don’t need to fix up a fire to enjoy this version—just pop it in the microwave and you’re ready to fill your sweet tooth fix. One pie has 140 calories and just five grams of fat.
