Desserts and Drinks

No need to disregard your sweet tooth. There are plenty of healthy options for desserts.

Exotic fruits are obvious selections. Try passion fruit, pomegranate, carambola (starfruit), cherimoya, or lychees.

You can eat fruits as is, baked, or in fruit salads, juices, smoothies, and sorbets.

Here are other suggestions for desserts and drinks:

  • Stay cool with the halo-halo, a Filipino concoction of crushed ice, sweet red beans, jackfruit, coconut meat, sweet yam, and milk.
  • Use nonfat or low-fat milk in recipes. In Dorfman's book, she offers a low-fat version of the traditionally high-fat Latin dessert called Tres Leches. Nonfat versions of milk, condensed milk, and evaporated milk are used. Chopped kiwi is also added to the batter, and the cake is topped with fresh strawberries and mandarin oranges.
  • Take a swig of the South Asian lassi, which combines nonfat yogurt with ice, mango pulp, salt, or sugar. The traditional lassi can be seasoned with ground-roasted cumin.
