I get a lot of questions on how to satisfy sweet cravings. Believe me, I hear you. I have, and have always had, a HUGE sweet tooth. Some research does show that just waiting 15 minutes can diminish a sweet craving – so find some activities to distract yourself! I like to go onto Pinterest to look at inspirational organization equipment for my apartment :) or talk call my best friends to catch up for a few minutes. What are your favorite distraction activities?? Leave me a comment below!
However (!) once in a while the craving does not go away. Sometimes all I need is a little bite of chocolate, but with the summer months coming up, I crave something cool and refreshing.
Instead of ice cream, try these easy-peasy bite-sized (and portion controlled) ice cube “pops” made with siggi’s (www.siggis.com) skyr, which is lower in sugar and high in protein, and uses simple ingredients (compared to other yogurts). Today I’m using siggi’s mixed berry whole milk (4% milkfat) skyr, which has 8gm of sugar and 12gm of protein per single-serving (125gm) container.
Note to the wise: be sure to use a high fat skyr – which freezes much better than a low fat or non-fat version!
