Robin’s Healthy Take: The Sweet Life

by in Robin's Healthy Take, December 22, 2011


I love sweets so I feel sad when people tell me they dodge desserts when they’re being “good”. Desserts aren’t all bad. You can enjoy sinful-tasting treats that are light and healthy too. Here are some of my favorite desserts, hot off the pages of my new cookbook, Robin Takes 5. The mini meringue cookies are made mostly of egg whites, so they’re super light and wonderful (and only 37 calories each). The mousse couldn’t be simpler; it’s got 5 ingredients and has only 156 calories per serving. The tart can be made countless ways just by switching the preserves – I used orange marmalade, but you could use apricot preserves, seedless raspberry, strawberry or blackberry preserves, or any other jam, jelly or preserve you like. All three treats are perfect for holiday parties and gift giving too.

These are just three of the sixty desserts (yes, 60!) in Robin Takes 5, which is available in Food Network’s online store and in bookstores.
