So your sweet tooth is calling, but you want to be healthy? This is a common occurrence for me! When a banana or some baby carrots just won't cut it, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite, easy to assemble sugar alternative snacks. All gluten free, of course… Sinfully yummy, without the added sugar!
Blend frozen peaches, rice milk, honey Mash a frozen banana with walnuts. Not only does it taste good, but also the walnuts will help slow down the absorption of the sugar. Top with a little bit a coconut milk for a real treat! Blend frozen bananas with coconut milk, cinnamon and cardamom Blend a frozen banana, frozen organic blueberries, hemp milk Dates mashed and mixed with coconut butter. Roll into balls, lightly coat with coconut oil and sprinkle with desiccated coconut Yam or sweet potato custard...add milk/cream, eggs, blend with cooked yams, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and nutmeg. Bake in the oven in a bain-marie Coconut butter mixed with organic cocoa and raw honey. Add a mashed banana to this for a little more sweetness 1/3 cup of organic heavy cream and whip until it is the consistency of whipped cream. Add 1 cup of frozen organic dark cherries or frozen organic blackberries and blend in with the cream. If it’s not sweet enough for your taste, add a few drops of agave nectar or stevia. (This makes enough for more than a few servings)
