Yes, it’s already March — a mere three months since we’ve made those New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get fit. But, are we really sticking to those promises? Keeping things strict and sweet free is a surefire way to stray from diets. And there’s no better time than during National Nutrition Month (yeah, it’s all month long). Here are 10 low-calorie desserts that pack on the sweetness but not the pounds… all of them fall at 200 calories or under!

Butterscotch bars
These buttery bars come in well under the 200-calorie mark and are 100 percent delectable. Try one with a cup of tea for a great late night snack.

Deep dark chocolate biscotti
Whether you’re dipping these in your morning coffee or snacking on one with a glass of cold nonfat milk, this crispy crunchy treat will leave you feeling satisfied.

Triple berry granola crisp
Granola isn’t just for breakfast. Try it in this recipe for a crispy treat featuring a berry trifecta of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries as a sweet treat.

Blueberry lemon tart
Tart lemon and sweet blueberries come together in this creamy dessert. They’re so beautiful, you might even want to make some for your friends — that is, if you can make them last that long.

Black forest banana split sundaes
Feel like a kid all over again, by making yourself this nostalgic treat. The deep dark chocolate is the perfect pairing for the natural sweetness of ripe bananas.

Caramel popcorn
Crunch away on a handful of this caramel popcorn because it’s only 200 calories per serving. You can keep your Cracker Jacks, we’ll take this stuff any day.

Peanut butter caramel apples
Rich peanut butter, sweet caramel and tangy granny smith apples. Need we say more? This is a treat the whole family will love, and one that you can feel good about serving.

Trail mix cookies
Chances are you might have all the ingredients for these stick-to-your-ribs cookies right in your cabinet. These cookies are big on flavor but small on calories.

Triple chocolate cheesecake bars
Cheesecake for less than 200 calories? It can be done! With a dose of three different kinds of chocolate, these cheesecake bars will satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth.

Chocolate cherry mini lava cakes
These mini cakes are the perfect portion size. And the molten chocolate center is just the right amount of gooey goodness.

We’re confident that you’ll love these low calorie desserts as much as we do! Which one is your favorite?
