Top 3 Fat Burning Desserts

 In Uncategorized
Desserts are most people’s downfall when it comes to nutrition plans.

“I had no problem avoiding the bread at the table before the meal, but when I got a glimpse of the dessert menu I couldn’t resist!”

Let’s face it, if you have junk in front of you it is going to get eaten.  Everyone wants a delicious treat every now and again.

Especially a treat that looks this tempting!
I have a solution!  It is three of my favorite dessert recipes I have used in fat loss plans for myself and for hundreds of clients
1) Greek Yogurt Cheesecake
Okay, so this isn’t exactly like cheesecake but it is pretty close!   Take a serving of non-fat Greek yogurt, add one scoop of vanilla protein powder (chocolate is good, as well), one or tablespoons of sugar-free, fat-free cheesecake flavored Jell-O pudding mix, 1/2 cup or so of berries.   Simply mix this together and you have a great little dessert!

2) If you are in a hurry and can’t make something I have found a little jewel of a snack that should kill and chocolate cravings!   Emerald Nuts makes an almond that is dusted with cocoa powder!  These things are like crack!  I could eat a 5lbs tub of them if you set it in front of me.  Grab a handful when you are carving some chocolate and satisfy those cravings!

3) If you are a sucker for peanut butter like myself, then you know how great a peanut butter cup tastes!   I love chocolate and peanut butter together.   Well I don’t have the perfect solution to this problem.  You can make chocolate peanut butter balls!  When I write that it sounds a little like something they might sing in a South Park episode.

For chocolate peanut butter balls, take a small amount of chocolate protein powder, probably close to one scoop and several TBSP of natural peanut butter (I would use the non-stir variety).  Add in some flax meal if you would like some extra healthy fat and fiber.  You will mix this together with a spoon, add a little (a teaspoon or two at a time) if needed to mix a little smoother.  Once mixed roll them into bite sized balls and place them in freezer to harder up a bit.

Hopefully these recipes will help you get rid of some dessert cravings and drop a notch or two off of your belt as well!
