"You can totally build dessert into healthy eating," says Ellie Krieger, host of the Food Network show Healthy Appetite. "If you say, 'I'm never having it,' you give all things sweet an enticing, forbidden-fruit aura. When you inevitably give in, it becomes a mindless munchfest." Reach for better-for-you desserts like this clever chocolate pudding, made creamy by its secret ingredient: avocado.
