Cendol

Cendol is a famous dessert in Malaysia. They prepare it with starchy green noodles, palm sugar, coconut milk, and rice topped with synthetic pandan flavor. It is utterly yummy. But keep in mind that you will get 140 calories along with 14 gm of fat from only 4 tsp of coconut milk. Sugar has lots of saturated fat. So, it is better to have it on occasion. But if you can’t resist yourself from enjoying cendol, make sure to divide it into parts and share the other parts with a friend. Thus, you can have fewer calories.

Bubble Tea

Though bubble tea is not a real dessert, its sweetness and taste have made it hugely popular from the onset. This iced tea has milk along with different flavorings as well as tiny tapioca pearls at the base. A cup of 400 ml of this delicious tea provides 231 calories and that is double the calories of a 330 ml soft drink. In general, one cup of tea uses six tsp of sugar, and that is the main culprit. To make it healthy, you can tell the vendor to add less sugar. It is better to opt for fresh skimmed milk rather than non-dairy creamer. This is because the creamer has lots of synthetic additives and trans fats.

Bubur Cha Cha

This is a sweet soup made of coconut, sweet potatoes, and tapioca pearls. The sweetness of the soup delights you when it passes through your throat. Though you feel great on the tongue, do not forget the calorie count. From a bowl of this tasty soup, you will get 390 calories. If you want to give it a healthy makeover, opt for evaporated milk in place of coconut milk.
