Satisfy your sweet tooth in seconds!
If you’re on a diet, or if you just would like something sweet after dinner then we have just the solution! It doesn’t need to be fancy however, sticking to just a small, sweet snack can be tricky.
1) Chocolate strawberries dipped in chocolate
Combat chocolate’s not-so-healthy side by using it as a semi-sweet jacket on superfoods, like strawberries or apples in fact! Dip half of the Strawberry in melted chocolate and refrigerate until the coating has hardened for a delicious treat.
2) Make a smoothie
It’s so easy to find a healthy smoothie recipe, for breakfast, a snack or even just a desert. In fact, there’s a wide range of smoothie recipes which are sweet enough to fill any of those cravings.
3) Nutella Yogurt Dip with Fruit
This is a slightly healthier take on chocolate fondue. Instead of pure chocolate, mix Nutella with Greek Yogurt and use as a dip with some fresh fruit or low-sugar crackers. In fact, instead of using Nutella you could also use Vorelli’s Sweet and Sicilian Sweet Pistachio Spread which is made with the best Sicilian Pistachios and is a rich, creamy and dense paste. Yum!
4) Cinnamon Toast
Toast up a slice of whole-grain bread and top with 1/4 teaspoon of butter and as much cinnamon as you wish!
5) Indulge yourself into a healthy, sticky chocolate fudge cake
This delicious chocolatey loaf is simply gorgeous and is perfect for getting rid of your sweet craving! To view the recipe head over to Top With Cinnamon where you can find inspiration on a variety of sweet dishes.
