Millennial Magazine - sweet tooth

Many people have a sweet tooth and crave eating something sweet, especially after dinner. Foods with high sugar content can be dangerous to your health. However, there are healthier options you can consider to maintain good eating habits. Here are 7 healthy recipes to try if you have a sweet tooth.

1. Full-fat Ice Cream

Full-fat ice cream contains natural fat as well as sweeteners like sugar cane which make it ideal for your sweet cravings. There is no scientific research that outlines the health risk posed by natural sugars and fats. Additionally, ice cream is a good source of protein and calcium.

2. Rainbow Desserts

If you have a strong desire for a healthier dessert, you can consider rainbow fruit kebabs. These are delicious and healthy desserts without any processed sugar. The recipe for a rainbow is simple, all you need are mango, strawberries, apples, pineapple, blueberries, kiwis, and blackberries.

3. Frozen Chocolate Banana

Bananas contain potassium, fiber, vitamins C, and B-6. To make this recipe, cut your banana into two halves and freeze one. Once the piece becomes solid, roll it in dark chocolate and add the crunchy topping of your choice. Granola and nuts can work well, and make sure you return the banana to the freezer for about an hour to let the chocolate set.

4. Cereal and Milk

A whole-grain cereal provides high fiber, and you can top it with milk or cinnamon. Add fruit to cereals if you want, and you will still get the same benefits. Cereals with less sugar are ideal, but you can also add little honey if you want to make the mixture sweeter.

5. Dark Chocolate With Almonds

Dark chocolate contains minerals, vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and flavonoids which help boost your immune system and fight infection. Add almonds to your dark chocolate, and you have a superfood for your sweet tooth. Almonds contain vitamin E which helps nourish your skin and are also rich in magnesium and protein which lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

6. Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon toast is quick to make, and it is one of the most effective snacks to quell your desire for foods with sugar. To make this recipe, you need two slices of whole-grain bread, coconut sugar, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, and avocado oil spray. First, toast your bread and spray it with avocado oil. The next step is to sprinkle coconut sugar and cinnamon over your toasted bread, and you are done.

7. Fresh Fruits

Fresh fruits are probably the simplest recipe you can consider if you have a sweet tooth. Any piece of fresh fruit can do as long as it provides sufficient natural sweetness that can quench your cravings. Some of the fruits you can try include blueberries, watermelon, or kiwi. The good thing about fruit is that they have great nutrients and fiber which are good for your health.

When you have a sweet tooth, you often crave sweet foods. While products with high sugar content might not be appropriate for your health, quitting them completely may not be easy. However, there are certain recipes that are less harmful for you, including the recipes stated above.
