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 skyr or Greek yogurt. Note to the wise: be sure to use a high fat yogurt – which freezes much better than a low fat or non-fat version!
5 minute prep each || Makes 12 servings
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
NOTE: frozen berries work too – as a cheaper alternative!
3 single-serving containers berry whole milk (4% milkfat) skyr or yogurt - choose a yogurt with less than 15 m sugar per serving
Scoop mixture evenly into ice cube tray
Put 1 toothpick in each cube before freezing
