So I thought I would share with you some of my healthier sweet favorites ...
Awhile ago I stopped drinking soda, but I still like having something carbonated ... so I swapped it for seltzer water.
Seltzer water is calorie and sugar free and has no artificial flavorings. I love it plain, but if I want something a little special I will make lemonade with Stevia (a natural calorie free sweetener).
Doesn't that look perfect for a hot summer day?
Seltzer water with a splash of juice is also great, like a fruit spritzer without the calories of just juice.
and for dessert ... I recently discovered Chocolate Covered Katie and boy have I been missing out! Katie posts the most amazing healthy recipes that don't sacrifice taste. I've only made a few but can't wait to try more. Here are some of my favorites ...
and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip - This is also thick and really tastes like the real thing, but without butter, eggs and flour - which have been substituted with white beans - trust me, you are going to want to try it! Check out Katie's recipe here
I love to eat it right off the spoon or with graham crackers - Katie also has a baked version if that's more your style.
I am by no means a dietician, but these are some healthier treats that I like to eat to satisfy my sweet tooth!
Do you have any favorite healthy substitutions?
