Dessert doesn't HAVE to involve chocolate per se, but why wouldn't it?!
Although an overindulgence in anything can be bad for your health, your blood sugar, and your baby, there should definitely be a balance between eating healthy and enjoying a sweet treat every now and then - especially during your pregnancy and as a new mommy!
Luckily for you, we've rounded up 10 of our favorite chocolate desserts that over deliver on taste while staying under 200 calories per serving. So mama gets her chocolate, and everybody else is safe from the hangry pregnant woman. ;) (Hypothetically speaking, right?)
If these don't look inviting, we probably can't help you find a dessert. This is everything we could've dreamed up in a chocolate dessert. Healthy, gluten-free, 100 calories, and made with ooey-gooey melted chocolate chips. Oh my!

Skip the added sugar Walmart bran fudgsicles, please! Why have those, when you could make this super healthy but just as delicious version? Just in time for summer!
First of all, double the chocolate = double the fun, amiright?
