5 Latin low-calorie desserts to beat the summer heat
Well, there may not be a heat wave anymore but it's still the hot, blazing summer these days. I've been looking for more ways to cool down in this heat and realized—what about dessert?!
One of my favorite things about summer (besides the Latin cool down drinks and Latin-flavored ice cream) is ice popsicles. The one thing I'm worried about, though, is the calories. I've definitely had a few too many indulgences since July 4th and now, just as with the Latin low-cal cocktails, I want to fix that—all with the help of my favorite Latin low-calorie ice cream-inspired desserts! There's even one that's JUST for the adults (fi you know what I mean). Yummy.

Strain cranberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish; discard solids. Cool to room temperature; stir in lime juice. Cover and freeze for about 45 minutes. Stir cranberry mixture every 45 minutes until completely frozen (about 3 hours). Remove mixture from freezer; scrape entire mixture with a fork until fluffy.
