4. Fruit and Yogurt Popsicles
You can make your own all fruit popsicles by blending your favorite fruits and then freezing them in a popsicle mold. If you don’t have a popsicle mold, fill paper cups halfway with your blended fruit mixture and then add wooden craft sticks before freezing. You can also make frozen yogurt popsicles with the remains of your healthy fruit and yogurt smoothies, or purchase all fruit popsicles from any grocery shop.
5. Fruit Salad
Fruit salad is a great way to make ordinary fruit more interesting, since it offers an intriguing mix of tastes and textures. Add sugar free vanilla pudding and try more interesting fruits like kiwi, mandarin oranges, raspberries and cherries.
6. Dark Chocolate
Unlike milk chocolate and white chocolate, dark chocolate is high in antioxidants and can help prevent tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression. Dark chocolate is still a high calorie food, so you shouldn’t eat a lot of it, but there is definitely a place for dark chocolate in a healthy diet. Have a square or two of dark chocolate each day to beat your sugar cravings.
7. Light Ice Cream Float
You can make a low calorie, healthy ice cream float from diet soda and light ice cream. Root beer goes well with vanilla ice cream, or you can try diet cherry cola and chocolate ice cream or diet cola and strawberry ice cream.
Applesauce, pear sauce and other fruit sauces are sweet, tasty and high in vitamins. They also contain high levels of dietary soluble fiber, which can regulate your blood sugar levels to control future sugar cravings.
9. Frozen Yogurt
Frozen yogurt is lower in calories than ice cream and offers protein and calcium. Use frozen yogurt as an ice cream substitute in any dessert that requires ice cream.
