Satisfy sweet cravings with healthier alternatives.


“I like pecans, but sometimes I just REALLY want something sweet,” Pep told me as he rifled through my cabinets looking for chocolate.

I told Pep to try substituting a healthier snack that can still satisfy his craving for sweet. Fruits contain natural sugars in addition to vitamins and fiber. Sliced apples with peanut butter (the protein in the peanut butter can keep your hunger satisfied longer), frozen blueberries, or orange slices are all sweet alternatives. Pep and I tried a few of the sweet snack recipes on my website as well:

No Bake Fig Newton Bites
Frozen Blueberries with Honey and Almond Milk
Chocolate Velvet Avacado Mousse
