Dessert recipes have lower amounts of sodium than most foods. To make an apple-berry cobbler that contains fewer than 111 milligrams of sodium per serving, combine 1 cup each of fresh raspberries and blueberries and 2 cups of chopped apples in a bowl along with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Make the cobbler topping by beating 1 egg white and then stirring in 1/4 cup of soy milk, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 3/4 cup of whole-wheat pastry flour. Spoon the fruit mixture into 6 individual ramekins, and top them with the cobbler. Bake them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.

To make a low-sodium avocado dip for sliced vegetables, thoroughly combine 1/2 cup of fat-free sour cream, 1 mashed ripe avocado, 2 teaspoons of chopped onion and 1/8 teaspoon of hot sauce. This recipe contains only 51 milligrams of sodium per 1/4-cup serving.
