Here are seven delicious sweet snacks that contain 100 calories or less, so you can satisfy your cravings without breaking the calorie bank.
1. Frozen cherries
It may be getting colder but you can still find some good cherries at your local supermarket. Simply pop one cup into a zip-lock bag and freeze until hard.
2. Chocolate Bananas
If you really can’t survive without chocolate, cut half a banana into 3 to 4 thick slices, and skewer each slice with a toothpick.
Dip the lower half into some melted dark chocolate (minimum 80% cocoa solids). Freeze until the chocolate has hardened.
3. Baked apple
Pop one cored apple into a baking dish and fill the middle with 1 tsp of brown sugar, 1 tsp of water and 1 tsp of cinnamon. Bake until soft.
4. Berries and cream
Top 1 cup of chopped blueberries, raspberries and strawberries with 1 tablespoon of full-fat ricotta. Voila!
5. DIY honey yoghurt
Add 1 tsp of honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon to 1/2 cup low-fat Greek yoghurt.
6. Caramelised pineapple
Fry two thick slices of pineapple in a hot non-stick pan for two minutes, or until golden. Remove and add a tablespoon of low-fat ricotta and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
7. 12WBT’s Strawberry ‘Ballerinas’
Chop three large strawberries in half. Sandwich the halves back together with 1 teaspoon of low-fat ricotta, spread evenly in the middle.
