How To Satisfy A Sweet Tooth The Healthy Way

The main reason a lot of us fall off the wagon when trying to eat healthier is because we have a sweet tooth and crave things such as chocolate, biscuits and ice cream.  We are also often put off by these healthy diets because they don't seem to have any treats in them and don't curb out cravings so we need to find alternative ways to satisfy these cravings whilst remaining healthy.

My favourite and easiest way to do this is fruit.  I know fruit can seem boring but there is generally at least a few pieces of fruit that people really like so stick to these.  My favourites are strawberries, bananas, dates, kiwis and mangos.

To make things more interesting you can blend your favorite fruits up into smoothies.  You can then add low fat or dairy free milk for added protein and cacao powder for added nutrients and chocolately taste!  I sometimes even add peanut butter to mine which is also high in protein.  This way I seem to get more fruit in and it just tastes like I'm drinking a milkshake!

Low fat jelly is also a good one to satisfy sweet cravings, you can even buy them ready made.  Also, low fat yogurts are a good one too.

Do you have any good tips for satisfying a sweet craving healthily?
