A Low-Calorie Ice-Cream Sundae? You'd Better Believe It!
The ice-cream sundae is an American diner classic and one in serious need of a low-cal makeover. Your average tall sundae glass, filled to the brim with ice cream and various toppings will start at around 600 calories and can easily push on to something more like 1000 calories in some case.
So, the makeover: Switch the ice-cream for a low-cal version and whipped cream for yoghurt (the yoghurt actually cuts through all the sweetness of the other ingredients). Then switch your chocolate sauce for a low-cal version and use the Lo-Dough Brownie as the sweet, substantial chunks. Make these changes and you can get your ice-cream sundae down to 290 calories - and you won't believe how good it tastes! Not only that, but this will supply you nearly 16g of protein and over 1/3 of your daily fibre allowance.

Take a brownie and break it up into pieces. and layer up a sundae glass with scoops of your favourite low-cal ice cream, chunks of the brownie, fresh raspberries, fat-free yoghurt and low-calorie chocolate sauce.
