Summertime Sweet Treats Under 100 Calories

We don’t know about you, but the warmer weather always has us craving something sweet…

Here at The Hut, we’ve got an unapologetic, unrelenting sweet tooth – which can prove tricky when we’re trying to cut down on calories in the run up to beach body season. If you’re on the hunt for some healthier – but equally as tasty – treats to whip up this summer, look no further: we’ve got five delicious recipes which are guaranteed to get your mouths watering, all coming in at 100 calories or fewer.

Called a sherbet rather than a sorbet, due to the addition of Greek yoghurt, this recipe from Yummy Healthy  Easy is downright delicious. Combine Greek yoghurt with frozen cherries, a dash of milk and some sweetner in a blender for a bowlful of yummy, fruity, sherbet-y goodness. Find the full recipe here.

Like an Eton mess, just fewer calories. Strawberries and crème fraiche is our go-to summer dinner party dessert, and looks lovely served in glasses with distinct, colourful layers. Add a dash of vanilla essence or some crushed mint or basil leaves to your crème fraiche topping to give a more luxurious flavour; for texture, crumble some Amaretti biscuits over the top for a low-cal crunch.
