Sweet and Smart Snack Options

Instead of diving to the bottom of a pie or swearing off dessert altogether, try these treats that are secretly good for you (who would have thought)!

Frozen S’mores

I know it’s summertime but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make these. For fiber, replace regular graham crackers with whole wheat ones, and swap that big marshmallow with a teaspoon of fluff and all-natural peanut butter. Then for an added twist add a scoop of chocolate fro-yo where you’d you normally put a chocolate bar! It is the perfect take on a campfire classic!

Chocolate Fondue

Everything is better when it’s dipped in chocolate! When you swap milk chocolate for dark, you add immunity boosting antioxidants to your dessert! Pop a handful of dark chocolate chips in the microwave for about 30 seconds, and dip fresh fruit instead of cake for a more nutritious spin!

Canned Mandarin Oranges with Light Whipped Topping

For a sweet fix, try mixing mandarin oranges canned in their own juice with a couple tablespoons of light whipped topping. The oranges give a great hit of vitamin C and other antioxidants, and the light whipped topping gives the snack an indulgent feel (a feeling you often miss when you’re watching what you eat).

With these sweet treats you will not only get the full satisfaction of a delicious treat but you won’t feel guilty either. Make sure to not go crazy on your portions and enjoy!
