What sweets do you eat when you're trying to be healthy?

Asked by SamIAm (8628 points ) August 9th, 2010

I have been eating pretty healthy lately but at night, after eating dinner, I have been craving chocolate or something sweet (fruit doesn’t cut it). Some nights I can fight it, but I don’t really feel like it is necessary to totally deprive myself.

My current “fix” is chocolate milk. What’s yours??

Granola bars, yoghurt, fruit

Try dehydrated fruits they are quite yummy, dipping them in some honey isn’t a bad thing either. Honey is quite good for you.

Apples with cinnamon on top, microwaved for about 25 seconds.

Jello is my favorite or chocolate pudding if it’s really chilled and has a skin around the edge.

@Neizvestnaya : ahhh skin on the chocolate pudding is my favorite! grandma always made the best pudding (even though it was just out of a box) and it always had the most perfect, wonderful skin!!! :)

@Samantha_Rae: stovetop hot chocolate makes a nice skin too.

Frozen yogurt, low cal ice cream bars like Skinny Cow, a handful of chocolate covered raisens, Yoplait whipped, lemon and key lime and Chocolate mousse.

Fresh mixed berries, like strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, topped with a little honey, plain yogurt, powdered sugar, or sweetened creme fraiche. I eat it with dark chocolate- Salazon chocolate with sea salt is my favorite, because the contrast between the salt and the chocolate is exciting and balanced. A little goes a long way, but the flavor is very decadent. Lindt also makes an awesome dark chocolate and sea salt bar. I also love creme brulee with fresh fruit or berries. It’s so rich that you only want a teeny little bit of creme brulee and you need the fruit to balance it out. That’s way better than eating a lot of ice cream or cake.

Black Panda Licorice and carrot juice, they go great together.

Cheddar cheese popcorn from Milwaukie Popcorn. It’s not sweets, I know, but that’s what I crave the most. :) Maybe a strawberry sundae.

Oooh yes, how could I forget berries!

I like blackberries plain or with yogurt.

I live around lots of wild blackberry vines, tis the season!

A tip for those that go berry picking.

Do not pick berries that grow close to the road, they have high levels of carbon monoxide in them.

Licorice and carrot juice?
Uh…think I’ll pass on that combo, icky funky that is…....hahaha

Oh uber recently told me this one, you take strawberries and cook them down with balsamic vinaigrette, and poor it over some vanilla ice cream. It sounds bizarre at first, but apparently tasty.

Packs of those 100 calorie cookies.

Grapefruit lightly broiled with a little bit of raw sugar on top

Trance24's avatar

@anartist That sounds really interesting I will have to try it.

anartist's avatar

@Trance24 somebody showed it to me recently.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

@anartist: Oh yum! Now I’ve got a new idea for the fruit from our trees :)

truecomedian's avatar

@Coloma
no it’s good, got to get the good Panda licorice, and eat it with the carrot juice, good times.

Purple wrapped dark chocolate Hershey kisses. You only need two or three to satisfy that chocolate craving and it’s easier to limit your intake.
