It’s hard to give up on those deliciously fattening desserts altogether if you’re looking to drop a couple of lbs before bikini season. So, don’t just quit cold turkey! You can still satisfy that sweet tooth with low-fat treats that taste just like the real deal. Forget that whole “half the calories is half the taste” spiel—these treats are so yummy, you won’t even know you’re eating better, and really, isn’t that the point?
I know what you’re thinking—these can’t possibly be healthy. But really, they are! By substituting regular cream cheese with low-fat (it tastes the same!), low-fat buttermilk and using only egg whites in these Cheesecake Brownies from Food Network Kitchens, you eliminate the majority of fatty ingredients that could hinder the beach bod results you’re looking for this summer.
