5 Things: Simple Treats Under 250 Calories

There's something about Summer that makes me crave sweet treats. Instead of devouring the pint of Ben & Jerry's sitting pretty in your freezer, try some of these refreshing Summer treats, all under 250 calories.

  1. Strawberry Vanilla Milkshake (6 frozen strawberries and 6 ounces of vanilla yogurt mixed in a blender): 162 calories
  2. Chocolate-Covered Banana (4 tablespoons melted Sunspire Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, 1 medium banana): 245 calories
  3. Cinnamon Toast (1 slice whole wheat bread, 1 tablespoon Smart Balance, 1 tablespoon drizzled honey, 1 teaspoon sprinkled cinnamon): 240 calories

If you're craving to see the other treat ideas then


  1. Apple Peanut Crunch (1 medium apple, 1 tablespoon unsalted peanut butter, 1/4 cup GoLean Crunch sprinkled on top): 216 calories
  2. Great Graham Pear (1 graham cracker broken in half to make 2 squares, 2 tablespoons cream cheese, topped with 1/2 a sliced pear): 209 calories

this is more of an autumn flavor, but if you cut, peel, and core an apple, microwave it with cinnamon, splenda (or sugar, etc), and a bit of brown sugar, it tastes like apple pie filling.

Sometimes when it's really hot, I'll make a frozen banana "shake". Freeze a banana, peel it, put it in the blender with 1/2 cup of skim milk, 2-3 ice cubes, and maybe a teaspoon of honey or sugar if you like it sweeter. Blend it up and's just like a milkshake!

MMM yum I can't wait to make some of these. Smoothies I usually put some whey protein in them Frozen Mixed Berries vanilla yogurt, milk and drink it for breakfast. That way I get my dairy, fruit and protein in the morning!

this is going to sound strange - but it's delicious! Watermelon lightly dusted with unsweetened cocoa powder! Soooo yummy! Though watermelon alone is pretty good too :)
