Smaller desserts mean you can eat more of them, right? When you make these adorable cheesecakes in shot glasses, they become even easier to down. And you can feel good about that, thanks to all the hidden protein from the Greek yogurt and silken tofu. And real pumpkin puree means you’re getting some beta-carotene in to counteract free radical damage. This is one of the few desserts you can feel guilt-free sneaking in as a post-workout snack.
