Health Tip: Bake a Healthier Treat
Make these smart swaps

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Eating healthier doesn't mean you can never have dessert; you just have to make better choices.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends:

  • Limiting portion sizes of your favorite treats, which may be loaded with sugar, fat and calories. Opt for mini cupcakes, or cut desserts into 2-inch squares.
  • Bake with quality ingredients, such as vanilla beans instead of extract.
  • Puree fruit or vegetables, substituting them for oil or butter.
  • Substitute at least half of the white flour in a recipe for whole-wheat flour.
  • Opt for low-fat milk instead of regular milk.
  • Skip the cream cheese in frosting for Greek yogurt.
  • Skip butter and replace with a heart-healthy oil, such as canola.
  • Reduce sugar in your recipe by about 25 percent, which shouldn't sacrifice taste.
