Top 5 Sweet Healthy Snacks

I am a sucker for sweet snacks.  I love cookies, cakes, ice cream...pretty much anything that you shouldn't eat in mass quantities, I am drawn to.  Therefore, if I want to make better choices in my diet, I'd better have some sweet health snacks that are easy to whip up and tasty too!

Here's my top 5 sweet snacks that I love:

#1:  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I first found this on the Girl Gone Country blog.  While this looks really dangerous, it's just Greek yogurt with a bit of peanut butter, and a couple of chocolate chips.  It is healthy and super filling.  You don't need much to be satisfied.  My kids love it for breakfast!

2.  Almond Milk Chocolate Pudding#2 Almond Milk Chocolate Pudding

So chocolate pudding doesn't have to be a dangerous thing.  If you replace the sugar in this almond milk chocolate pudding recipe with stevia, you'll have a sweet and satisfying little treat.  Top with a dollop of whipped cream (the good stuff) and you'll think you're enjoying the real thing.

3.  Fruit and String Cheese

Fruit is a simple go-to for a quick sweet snack, but if not paired with protein, it can tank my blood sugar in a blink!  The easiest solution to this difficulty is string cheese.  Recently I was challenged by a little string cheese lover that I was not eating it correctly.  In my haste, I gobbled up my cheese without tearing a single string.  You've been's not just a snack, but also an activity!

4.  Skinny Chocolate

While these tasty treats look large in the picture, they are actually small lovely bites.  Skinny chocolate blends coconut oil and cocoa to make a wonderfully luxurious treat that offers good fat and satisfies appetites.  My favorite version mixes in peanut butter and dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder. I originally was inspired from the New Lighter Life.  Try these out.  So good!

5. Protein Shakes

I love a good milk shake, but they are definitely not easy on the hips.  If I can get away with a shake that is equally sweet and tasty, but filled with protein (without all of the sugar), I'm a happy girl.  Even better, if I can get my husband or son to become a protein shake expert, then I can have one made for me and I truly feel like I'm enjoying a luxurious snack.  Yum!
