I have a popsicles form & I make my own popsicles, out of my home made green drink. Delicious & healthy, too! (Recipe on my new blog today, 10-18-17)

Making a protein cupcake with my protein powder, cocoa, almond milk, baking powder and a little sweetener is mine.

As a general rule, I keep it out of the house and my kids treats are off limits. One of my favorite ways to enjoy a special dessert if we go out for dinner is to share with someone at the table. Then I can enjoy every bite of my half! Works like a charm.

Dessert is not part of a normal meal for me, its a something for a special occasion. I'm lucky that I grew up in a family where sweets weren't emphasized. That doesn't mean that I don't love sweet treats, especially chocolate anything. I've maintained my weight loss by a combination of having low-calorie "indulgences" convenient--fresh berries with yogurt or Skinny Cow bars. They are satisfying enough when I want a bit of a treat.

But when it comes to real dessert--the kind that gets served at a dinner party or a restaurant I use moderation as control. First, its not an everyday part of my eating so I can indulge a little. I take a few bits and I stop (usually). Someone once told me that the second bite tastes just like the first bite so before I begin I decide if I am "tasting" or eating this dessert. I almost always pick the tasting option. Then I decide how many tastes I will enjoy--usually 2 or 3. I taste slowly and then I put down my fork. It almost always works.
