Never Skip Dessert! Low Calorie Dense Alternatives

Delicious Low-Calorie Dessert Substitutes You Don't Want To Miss! Perfect when you are craving a piece of cake, a scoop full of ice cream, or even a square of chocolate.

You don't have to skip dessert any more! Tackle your sweet-tooth cravings with these dessert substitutions.

We welcome the swift change to February as the first month of the year is over. Forbes Magazine recently stated that at least 11% of people continue their New Years Resolutions for up to 6 months. [1] Don't fret! You can be in that 11% this year by simply changing your dessert plans.

Options don't have to be limited when sugar cravings are hard to kick.

Even though most of the western hemisphere is starting to get more hours of sunlight per day, we are not yet through with winter! During these dark months it is easiest to fall into our comfort zones, grab a comfy blanket and binge watch the latest tv show until it's time for bed. Dinners become more indulgent and dense, and sweet-tooth cravings are rampant to help our mood.

For those that are trying to lose weight, stick to low-calorie density foods, and even exercise, the desirable comfort that comes with winter becomes an uphill battle. Sugar can turn into our worst enemy, but also our most desired craving.

Everything in moderation.

Dessert alternatives becoming more popular, but these foods can be heavily processed and full of trans fat. Even those devious, 100-calorie snack packs can do harm to our idea of what is healthy and what isn't. Thankfully, at The Whistling Kettle, we have a line of teas that work for anyone that is craving something sweet without all the sugar and added calories. These low-calorie and low sugar options are perfect for those of us who are focusing on weight loss, overall wellness, have banned sweets from the pantry - and even individuals suffering from diabetes.

Blended with spices and ingredients that enrich each tea to taste like a decadent dessert. Each aromatic profile is rich and combines well with a bit of milk or creamer for those that prefer a creamier texture. Our complete line of dessert inspired teas includes excellent Carrot Cake, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie, and Belgian Chocolate.

Carrot Cake

This brilliant tea tricks the mind into thinking a freshly baked slice of carrot cake is right under our noses. Made with a rooibos and honeybush base to provide a bit of warmth to the flavor profile, there are real pieces of carrots found in the blend of this tea. Carrot Cake tea has a touch of sweetness with its white chocolate pieces, a sprinkle of ginger and cinnamon to give it a spice.

Belgian Chocolate

Satisfy your chocolate cravings this Valentine's Day with Belgian Chocolate tea! Another tea on our list with a rooibos base - you can find cacao nibs and calendula petals create a perfect harmony for this tasty tea.

Indulge more with tea - no shame needed.


If you're a fan of the sticky bun, do not fear! 
Cinn-O-Bun is here! This tea has a black tea base to give you a caffeine boost. Spiced with cinnamon, sprinkled with icing and just a touch of lemon to make you swoon. Top it off with some a low-calorie creamer and get transported to heaven.

Almond Lemon Panna Cotta

Sweetness and a burst of lemon. This black tea is naturally sweetened with toasted almond and lemon peel. If you are a fan of panna cotta, or even a lemon square, you will love this tea. Although it is a black tea, it has a medium body and the flavor profile is unlike anything else!
