A lot of people rely on a sweet pick-me-up to mark the end of a successful day. But when you’re on a weight loss journey, how can you enjoy something sweet while staying on track? There are certainly ways to satisfy your sweet tooth while not overindulging. Get creative with some of the options below.
Natural, low-sugar popsicles are a great why to get your fruit-intake in while enjoying something sweet. You can buy a healthy popsicle option at your local store, or make them at home. Blend your fruit of choice (add yogurt for a creamier texture), freeze, and enjoy!
Baked Apples, Pears, or Peaches
Apples, pears, and peaches are great fruits to throw in the oven for 30 minutes. The sugars in the fruit caramelize, and if you add a little brown sugar or cinnamon to the top, it’s almost like eating a slice of pie. Just make sure you take the seeds out before enjoying.
Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Cream
Make a healthier ice cream with two ingredients! Put 2 frozen bananas and 1/4 cup natural peanut butter into a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. Once it’s frozen, you’ll have an easy ice cream you won’t feel guilty about eating.
Chia pudding is not only easy to make, but highly customizable. Combine chia seeds and preferred milk together. Let the pudding set for a couple hours in the fridge. After that, you can add whatever you like– fruit, granola, a touch of honey or maple syrup, nut butter, or whatever else sounds good.
If you’re the type of person who needs their chocolate fix, this is the option for you. Dip a strawberry, banana, or whatever fruit you’d like in dark chocolate, freeze until solid, and enjoy the fruity, chocolate-y goodness.
