Can eating dessert every day possibly be healthy? If you stick with a combination of fresh, whole-food ingredients and sensible portions, it's okay to indulge in a post-dinner sweet each night of the week.

This surprisingly simple recipe is made with only five ingredients -- and the cookies come in at just over 100 calories each.

Made with yogurt, fresh fruit and crunchy granola, this parfait-style dessert won't weigh you down.

Fresh fruit plus a hint of decadence -- with virtually no prep time.

Angel food cake is made with egg whites so there's virtually no fat or cholesterol. Fresh mango with lime makes a flavorful topper.

An oh-so-delicious (and healthier) take on a milkshake: Bananas and yogurt replace ice cream, while peanut butter supplies a hit of good fat.

A splash of lemon liqueur takes sweet berries to another level. Bonus: The dessert provides a potent dose of fiber along with vitamin C.

Phyllo dough is the flaky, delicious secret to this better-for-you pastry.
