Desserts are a girl’s best friend! It’s easy to give into to a tray of freshly baked cookies but how do we fulfill those sneaky cravings but also stick to a healthy diet and fitness plan? Here are some tips and tricks to help!

Drink juice instead of soda. Some people drink soda to satisfy sweet cravings, but juice is much healthier and still tastes great. Naked and V8 drinks are filled with lots of nutrients and healthy ingredients. I often find myself drinking one before my in home personal training session.

Eating Fruit! Fruit is healthy and tastes great! It’s a great alternative. You can eat the fruit raw, cooked, out of a can, or even dried. Dried fruit is a great substitute for gummies and candy.

Try flavored rice cakes instead of cookies. Rice cakes come in an array of flavors. These taste great, satisfy those evil cravings and are much healthier. You can also usually eat many more rice cakes per cookie!

A great low calorie snack is popcorn. To make it sweet and delicious, try unsalted popcorn with a bit of honey or a sprinkle of cocoa powder. It is a yummy treat to take to the movies and eat between meals.

It is healthier to make your own frozen treats than to eat ice cream bars and popsicles! Make ice pops by freezing juice in an ice cube tray. Freeze and enjoy!

Peanut butter doesn’t only taste great but its hardy and will keep you full until the next meal. Half of a whole wheat sandwich of peanut butter and jelly should do the trick! It’s great for its nutrients.

Sorbet is made from sugar water and fresh fruit. It’s fat free which makes for less consumption of unhealthy calories. It’s also vegan! It includes the benefits of eating fruit and contains lots of great vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Not only is sorbet delicious but makes you feel as if you’re eating ice cream.

Greek yogurts are filled with proteins and healthy items. You can enjoy a health treat of honey and strawberries!
