Desserts make us smile and (unfortunately) they turn us into fatties.
Today’s Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a quick low-fat summer dessert that treats bellies, butts and taste buds kindly!
I’ve crunched the nutrition numbers on these Caramel Berry Napoleons and it looks like they have what it takes to keep us from expanding the size of our swimsuits this summer.
Eat four and the numbers still look good compared to most desserts.
The second layer (and caramel sauce) adds extra calories but they hardly matter because we get bonus vitamins and antioxidants (whatever they are) from the strawberries and blueberries saddled up on top!
And to be honest, we need that second level of sweetness to officially call these Napoleons.
Your next mission…eat these without making a mess = )!
