Desserts for people who are fat


Recommended Posts

I am fat, and my gf has gained appreciable weight hanging out with me.  We are both bad influences on each other.

We normally eat well, I cook when she is here, and she cooks when we are at her place.  I always make things from scratch; my own pizza, meatloaf, lasagna, roasty chicken things, etc, and never order out unless she wants to splurge for some reason.  We eat a fair bit, more after we have a beer or two, and maybe an edible if inclined.   She thinks there always has to be a dessert. and we overeat because dinner is good, and dessert is dessert.  More is better, often.

I am making half a cake right now, but it will be more brownie-like by design.  I added some semi-sweet chocolate chips and some butterscotch chips, along with that baker's sugar on top that doesn't melt and gives it a crunchy layer of crypto-biotic feel, and am baking it in a smaller ceramic baking dish (it is blue, so it might cook faster).  I really only made half so the gluttony can be controlled.  I am skipping icing so's to skip the extra butter and massive sugar that I always want.  

Anyway, I am wanting to ween to better for you dessert stuff, or stuff that is finite in size and scale.  What do you advise?

Fruit...with a drizzle of....caramel, chocolate, cream, marshmallow, ...the word is drizzle..not scoop...

Watch your fat and cholesterol and portion control including edibles. 


Fruit desserts may be a good compromise, it is apple crisp season almost.

We all have our nutrition and dietary challenges...and if you think about the WHY you want to or need to lose weight...and if you honestly review what you eat presently...the changes you need to make will come to you..slow and steady..you didn't  get fat overnight..you won't  lose it overnight...

It ain't fun...when you start...but once you make some changes...you will notice a difference.

Nice cream. You can do chocolate like the recipe. I also add vanilla and frozen bi g cherries sometimes. 
Good use for aging bananas 

  • 2 bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Place bananas and cocoa powder in a food processor or high-speed blender. Process or blend until completely smooth, pausing if necessary to push the ingredients toward the bottom of the processor or blender.
  • Serve immediately.

If you really must bake sometimes...make a fruit dessert foccacia or pizza.

I made it for my sister's family who I stayed with in Toronto this month. And in the past few years.

Kicking up Focaccia con frutta (Fruit Focaccia): My Way with Ginger Root and Spices – Cycle Write Blog (wordpress.com)

Just make pizza dough or buy it.  spread it out on sheet and embed into dough:

crushed aniseed, minced ginger root..

press in fresh blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or cut plums, peaches.  You could as option, sprinkle some cinnamon.

Pop into 500 F degree oven and bake for about 15 min.

You can before putting oven, lace it with honey or maple syrup. Just a touch.

It is a most exotic..and healthy dessert.  Reheatable in microwave.  No fat, and no processed sugar.

A typical after-dinner desert for me is Snack Pack Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.  There are 4 3.5 oz. cups in each for about $1.25/package.  I usually have 2 of them which is 2 x 70 = 140 Calories.  I also often do Tastykake Chocolate Kandy Cakes where a pack of 2 is 180 Calories. They used to be frequently on sale, two 12-packs for $5, but now a 12-pack is hard to find for less $4.50 now.

We are not big dessert eaters, but when fruit is fresh, sliced strawberries.  Take one cup of marscapone, one tablespoon of honey and one tip of vanilla.  A bunch of raw strawberries, a tablespoon or two of this concoction on top, drizzle a balsamic reduction over and you you have a great dessert.

We also do this with fresh peaches, only grill them first.
