This Independence Day weekend, after feasting on a full array of grilled and baked favorites, there’s only one way to complete a classic cookout: with a delicious low-calorie treat.
This year, skip the creamy ice cream or fatty cakes (as much as you love them) — and enjoy something lighter, brighter and healthier.
Choosing low-calorie desserts to serve or enjoy after a big, festive dinner doesn’t mean store-bought treats, either.
Instead, it’s fun to prepare something delicious and fun from scratch.
Get the kids to help, too.
These three ideas for low-calorie treats are both tasty and refreshing.

Adults will join in the fun, too — and appreciate the offering of something lighter than usual.
