3 Healthy Sweet Snacks to satisfy your sweet tooth

 

We always want something sweet to eat after our meals. Let's face it, eating sweets everyday can slowly lead to many health ailments as we grow older. Thus, its either good to eat them in moderation or make them healthier. 

 

Here are three quick recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth: 

 

* Chocolate Dipped Strawberry:  Combat chocolate's unhealthy side by using it as a semi-sweet jacket on fruits such as strawberries! Dip and let set in the refrigerator until the chocolate coating has hardened.

 

                                                                                      

 

 

* Choco-Nut Popcorn:  Pop a small bag of natural popcorn and top with 1 tablespoon melted peanut butter and a dusting of cocoa powder. Crunchy and the perfect amount of sweetness! Also, try swapping peanut butter for Nutella.

 

 

                                                                                       

 

 

* Yogurt Parfait: Top 1 cup Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla) with your choice of toppings: crumbled graham crackers or granola, nuts, and fruit are all healthy choices. Add some shaved chocolate if you must!
