From brownies and cookies to creamy chocolate pies and homestyle cakes, these low-calorie desserts will put a smile on any dieter's face.

No-Bake Key Lime Pie

Who doesn't love a no-bake dessert, especially one that won't make us feel guilty? No-Bake Key Lime Pie is sure to make everybody happy, especially one of our readers, who says, "I can't believe how good this tastes. I really love it!"

Little Italy Cheesecake

We've all got our favorite cheesecake recipes. Well, now you're gonna have another one. It's made with ricotta cheese as well as cream cheese - of course, reduced-fat types of both. So you can enjoy that great Italian flavor once again.

Peach Melba Parfaits

Peach Melba Parfaits are a sophisticated dessert that will appeal to adults and kids alike. These parfaits are loaded with fruit, and using frozen yogurt rather than ice cream saves calories, too.

Black Bean Brownies

The first time we tried these Black Bean Brownies, we couldn't believe how rich and fudgy they were! No one here would have guessed that they were diabetic friendly, or that they were made with black beans! It's safe to say, we can't get enough of 'em!

EDR Decadent Peanut Butter Pudding Pie

You don't have to ignore your sweet tooth when it's telling you to eat something rich and creamy. Our Decadent Peanut Butter Pudding Pie uses lighter ingredients, but has so much flavor you'd never even know!

EDR Chocolate Spa Cake

Can the words "chocolate" and "spa" be used in the same sentence? Of course they can! And topping each serving of our Chocolate Spa Cake with a spoonful of light whipped topping or low-fat yogurt and fresh berries is the icing on the cake!

EDR Creamy Dreamy Banana Pie

You'd never guess that our Creamy Dreamy Banana Pie is guilt-free. It tastes as good as the real thing, but no one has to know you used lighter ingredients. Before you know it, the whole gang will be asking you to make this every night!

Chocolate Berry Trifle

Trifles are the perfect dessert for easy entertaining and this one also works great for making individual servings for more intimate parties. Chocolate Berry Trifle is made with lighter ingredients, so enjoy the guilt-free indulgence!

Unbelievable Cheesecake Squares

You're not going to believe how we keep this crust together - with orange marmalade! Yup, no butter! And it's sure to keep your family together, too - at least until after dessert.

Fresh and Fruity Dessert Pizza

Delicious fruit and a Greek yogurt mixture make our Fresh and Fruity Dessert Pizza the perfect recipe for an after-school or after-dinner treat.

Watermelon Almond Tart

If you love pies and tarts but those bakery-style crusts love your waistline too much, we have the answer! Our light and flavorful Watermelon Almond Tart recipe is chock-full of a load of healthier ingredients. Indulge and enjoy.

Frozen Pineapple-Lemon Pie

We've got just the dessert for your next patio barbecue, and it's one that you can make the night before! Our Frozen Pineapple-Lemon Pie is a no-bake pie that's full of light and tropical flavors, perfect for sunshiney days.
