3 creative desserts

Whether it's a slice of cake or a bowl of fruit, dessert can help round out a balanced diet. You'll savor a dessert made with the best ingredients you can find far more than something that's available to you all the time, like lower-calorie ice creams, says Katzie Guy-Hamilton, director of food and beverage at Equinox.

Next time you're looking for something sweet, try these three healthy options.

Cotton Candy Grapes

This fruit varietal tastes like the festival staple, but still offers all the fiber and B vitamins of regular grapes.
