Restaurant fudge sundaes can easily add 500 or more calories to your meal. For the average person needing 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day getting 20 to 25 percent of your calories from one dessert means giving up other foods.
You don’t have to give up desserts to maintain or lose weight. Skip the high calorie restaurant desserts, and use portion control to make and enjoy the same dessert at home with 40 percent less calories. Homemade desserts cost less saving you money.
This 300 calorie fudge sundae recipe takes 5 minutes or less to prepare. Using a small dessert glass or bowl will help control portion size without having to weight each ingredient. Even if your version has 50 to 100 calories more it’s still substantially less compared to most restaurant desserts.
Omitting whipped cream saves 40 calories and 3 grams of saturated fat. Frozen yogurt can be substituted for regular ice cream reducing calories and saturated fat.
For hot fudge sundae, warm chocolate sauce in a microwave oven. Freeze single serving of ice cream until ready to serve.
