LOW CAL CARROT CAKE- 1 box Carrot Cake mix. 15oz can Pumpkin. 1 cup shredded carrots. 1 cup raisins. Mix everything. Bake as directed on box. Saves calories by subbing the oil and egg for pumpkin!

JELL-O Alternative

If you're not into eating gelatin for health reasons (and there are some good ones), try this alternative with agar (found in health food stores and some grocery stores). Agar also has a mild laxative effect and soothes the digestive tract. It contains no calories.

4 cups apple juice or apple cider (only 100% real juice)
2 teaspoons agar powder (4 tsp. if you're using granular, 6 Tbsp. if you're using kanten flakes)
2 cups sliced, fresh strawberries

Pour the juice into a saucepan and add the agar. Bring to boil over medium heat. Stir to blend and allow to simmer for one minute. Pour into a shallow dish. Add the strawberries evenly. Allow to sit, uncovered, for one hour (best in the fridge).

You can also experiment with other juices and fruits. Agar naturally enhances flavours, so thee's no need to add anything else. Credit where credit is due, this recipe comes from The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia by Rebecca Wood.

Bon app├ętit!

This website is for people who do weight watchers but even people who don't can enjoy these yummies. They are low in points for WW so they are also low cal, low fat and some high in fiber. Check it out and go to her recipes and you will find tons of different sweets there. Apparently she has quite the sweet tooth.

I like white chocolate mousse with berries

1 pkg SF white chocolate pudding
1.5 cups skim milk
.5 cups lite cool whip
3 cups sliced or whole berries (depending on preference)
1 tsp vanilla (the higher quality the better)

Prepare pudding mix with the milk and whipped topping and spoon 1/2 the mix into the bottoms of 4 goblets, divide 1/2 the fruit among the 4 goblets, add remaining mousse and top with remainder of fruit. Use fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries for a lovely sweet and velvety dessert. Nice enough to serve as the end of a gourmet dinner - no one ever guesses this is a 'diet' dessert. It's high in fiber and anti-oxidants.

~130 cal per serving (using the ingredients listed above)

Um, I think the OP specified "good for you." Sad to say, Hershey's kisses don't count.
