I have no self control when it comes to sweets. None. Give me a cake and I will try my hardest to not eat the whole thing. Bad for my diet, bad for my health, and bad for my poor tummy! Knowing that, I look for portion controlled sweets. Usually I am left with little options, and a big craving for something sweet. Betty Crocker tried to win me over with her Warm Delights Mini Dessert Bowls, but 150 calories for a small bowl and a long ingredients list, which didn't fill me up just wasn't going to cut it.
Then I heard about Guiltless Gourmet's Dessert Bowls. These all natural, portion control desserts come in 3 decadent flavors: Bananas Foster, Hot Chocolate Brownie, and Black Velvet Cake. I tried the Bananas Foster Cake. The taste was delish! No way did this taste like "low fat." The banana flavor was complimented perfectly with the rich caramel sauce. I didn't microwave mine for the full minute, causing my cake to be a little more 'doughy', ut I did this on purpose because I like it better that way. It tasted like real cake batter!
Each 58 gram Guiltless Gourmet Bananas Foster Dessert Bowl provides 200 calories, 2 grams of fat of which 1 gram is saturated, 10% of the daily value for sodium (250 mg), 3 grams of protein and 42 grams of carbohydrates which includes 26 grams of sugar. The ingredients are all natural and recognizable, starting with wheat flour.
This dessert may not be a nutritional powerhouse, and I wasn't expecting it to be. I am just thankful I can satisfy my sweet tooth in a healthy, natural, potion controlled way!
