5 from 5 votes
Prep Time:5 minutes
Total Time:5 minutes


  • 1 can pineapple chunks (1 can = 20oz in juice, or ½ real pineapple)
  • 1 cup mint, fresh


  • Drain the tin or chop up the real pineapple and put in bowl in freezer (it should take around 2 hours to freeze). Save a few chunks or a ring for garnish.
  • When it’s frozen use a hand blender or food processor to blend, along with mint (also keep a few mint leaves aside).
  • If you’re using fresh pineapple then I suggest blending first and freezing after, it seems to work better.
  • When nicely mixed, place in bowls and garnish each with the remaining chunks and leaves.
  • Serve immediately or put back in freezer until needed.


Please note: You need to throw the chopped pineapple in the freezer for about 2 hours before you can make your sorbet!

An oasis in a dessert desert!

There are a million reasons to choose low calorie desserts under 100 calories (and a million reasons to cheese veggie low calorie lunches too!).

Maybe you find yourself craving a kick of sugar after a big meal, but don’t have room in your belly for a big dessert. Now you can get your fix without feeling stuffed to the gunnels!

Naturally, low calorie desserts under 100 calories are going to be beneficial if you are trying to lose weight, as many desserts can be quite calorific (it can also be good to have low calorie snacks to hand!).

In fact, if it was weight loss that brought you here, you should also check out our free 7-day vegetarian weight loss meal plan! We specialise in guiding vegetarians through a healthy process of weight loss.


I’m answering some of your questions here. Hope you find the answers you need!

Can I lose weight and still eat dessert?

Yes! Eating dessert won’t jeopardise your weight loss as long as the sweet treat has healthy ingredients and an appropriate number of calories (the same goes for snacking – try our high protein low calorie snack ideas!).

What is a good amount of calories for dessert?

It’s best to choose healthier desserts that have 100-200 calories and provide nutritional benefits.

Check out this compilation of healthy low-calorie vegan desserts for more inspiration.

How do I avoid sugar when trying to lose weight?

You can control your sugar intake by limiting packaged, processed foods that contain added sugars like soft drinks, fruit juices, cookies, cake, candy, granola bars and cereals.

Focus on whole foods instead. Fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seeds can be turned into yummy desserts to satisfy your sugar cravings.

You can also try incorporating cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, ginger, mint and lemon to develop healthy recipes with richer flavors.

We hope you enjoyed experimenting with low-calorie desserts under 100 calories (maybe now you want to experiment with low carb high protein desserts!)! Share your favorite desserts in the comments.

    made quite a few of these recipes. have been very happy,, taste lovely with fewer calories. whats not to love

    1. so good to hear Susan!! 🙂

  2. Hi! Thank you for posting this. I have just started dieting and have trouble keeping away from sugar. Just a quick question. For every dish, is it 100 calories according to the amount given in the recipe? Eg, 1 cookie is 100 calories? Or a while bunch according to the quantity given in the recipe?

    1. Hi Bee! And thanks for the question, it’s a very good one. So for these, it’s each serving that is 100kcals or less. Serving size depends on each individual recipe. It could be one cookie, or two protein balls, or one glass of smoothie, for example. Just click each one and you’ll see what serving size is suggested. I hope that helps, thanks for writing!

  3. 5 stars
    I’ve never tried North American cuisines ,but I want to learn how to cook American cuisines, fast food and desserts and can’t wait to try them one day

  4. A well-curated list, and nice variety, as well. I quick skim of the links and dipping in here and there shows that many will be able to be made without fancy ingredients or techniques or equipment. That’s even better. Thanks for compiling this list, it will be quite useful!

    1. Oh yeah! Delicious, healthy yet simple recipes are what we are working on! Thank you! 🙂

  5. 5 stars
    This is such a delicious looking list of recipes! Can’t wait to try a bunch of them!

    1. Thank you Beth! They’re light and tasty indeed! Let us know which one you enjoyed 🙂

    2. Glad you like the look, Beth!

  6. Hi Dave!
    I love your blogs! Thanks to you guys, I have discovered some very amazing vegan & gluten-free recipes!
    Just wanted to point out a minor discrepancy in this particular blog- The mini vanilla mug cake is actually 185 calories ( the author of the blog revised her calculations) and not 35 as mentioned here.
    I am quite heartbroken about it actually! 35 calories sounded like a dream come true!

    1. Hi Neha, and thank you! Ahhh yes, well-spotted. We’ll get that changed. A shame indeed! I hope you can find something else from the list instead 🙂

    2. Hi Neha! Thank you for pointing that out! We’ve corrected the number. And really thanks for the feedback, it’s much appreciated 😉
