It is definitely oranges! They're tasty, sweet and they have a lots of juice in. The are satisfying my thirst, my hunger and my sweet-need. Also they are not rich in calories.

Summer is the easiest time of year to satisfy my sweet tooth with healthy food:

Strawberries
Strawberries
Strawberries

And on special days, ice cream.

Skinny cow ice cream treats. I love the caramel truffle ice cream bars or the ice cream sandwiches. some of the posts have great ideas, and I am going to look for some items I have seen posted. Great thread!

Fruit, fruit, and more fruit! I have also been buying fruit leather lately - it has a good sweet taste and the brand I buy has no added sugar and even some carrot puree mixed in. If I have a chocolate craving, I keep light organic chocolate soymilk in the fridge. It really hits the spot and I get some calcium and protein.

There is this amazing stuff at Whole Foods called "Arctic Zero" in the ice cream section. I am an ice cream lover, and when I need something to fix my sweet tooth I always go for this stuff. you can eat the whole pint for only 150 calories, but I am usually satisfied with 1 cup or so. It is gluten free, has no dairy products and made with Whey Protien. Its super good for you and has pretty much no chemicals. The vanilla Maple is the best flavor and I like to take that, add some cinnamon and maybe a little bit of frosted flakes on top. Tastes very similar to fried ice cream at the mexican restaurant for less than 100 calories!! I love it!

I am obsessed with Rainier cherries. I think I could eat pounds and pounds of them at one sitting. Luckily, they're too expensive for me to actually do that. But WOW are they good.

Summer fruits! It wouldn't be summer without them. Taste them as see. Fresh from the tree!

Or

I enjoy a cup of skim milk with 1Tbsp of good quality chocolate powder. Because it's hot it takes up space and really satisfies.

Or

I have a variety of teas, herbal and black. If I need a little extra sweetness I use lemon and honey. If you need the teaspoon of sugar, don't feel guilty, it's only 15 C, but it can be just the right amount of sweetness.

Above all else, quality matters. If the fruit, or chocolate, or tea isn't good quality, they will not be very satisfactory.

Splurge on quality not calories!

Oh, one more thing, use carbonated water and a little juice and you will have a nice drink that is better than soda and doesn't pack you with sugar.

I need help with my cravings for soda. Any ideas for a sweet healthy drink? I've been drinking a lot of unsweetened iced tea for my caffiene fix.

Like other post have said Fruit- Fruit- Fruit!!! I will even do plain greek yogurt and mix a little honey in it (yum)!

An apple with natural peanut butter. :) There's the natural sweetness of the apple (though I actually prefer to use Granny Smiths for this) and the protein in the peanut butter helps you stay satisfied longer than just an apple would. :)

As a lot of people have said. Fruit. I always have to have fruit around to keep my sweet tooth at bay. But if I have enough left over calories at the end of the night, I'll treat myself to some ice cream, brownies, cookies, etc. The trick is I stay within the serving size. So only 1/2 a cup of ice cream for example, and then I take my sweet time eating it. I also love greek yogurt with honey, flax seeds, fruit, etc. This can be high calorie so I have to watch the serving sizes. So creamy and so good it's at least as good as pudding if not better.

I'm not huge on sweets, but I still like a sweet taste in my mouth after dinner. This may sound crazy but Flintstones gummy vitamins (adults should eat two/day) satisfym my daily sweet tooth. If not, a great cup of cold herbal tea, raspberry flavor, works, too.

I usually have 1/2 cup of 2% greek yogurt (plain) with berries mixed in.

I think these are really good suggestions! I have to say though, I can't deal with the chocolate. It's not that I don't like it. I LOVE it and feel dissatisfied and grumpy only eating a small amount. I have been eating watermelon or Activia Light vanilla yogurt with fresh strawberries. I'm hoping to conquer my chocolate cravings by not eating chocolate before I go to bed. : ) : )

If I absolutely HAVE to have something sweet, I will have 16 Ghirardelli 60% Cocoa Premium Baking Chips. 80 Cal., 8 Carbs., 6g. fat
I think the "healthy" part is in the antioxidants.

If I'm craving something sweet before I go to bed as I often do, I have a cup of decaf coffee with a tablespoon of half and half and zero calorie, sugar free Torani syrup (I like the vanilla). Not "healthy" per say, but only 20 calories for the half and half is much better than eating cookies or iceceam before bed like I used to! Of course, sometimes I'll also have a fat free Snackwells cookie with my coffee as well (50 calories in one cookie).

Nonfat vanilla yogurt with a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa mixed in is a good choice too - there's actually only 5 calories in a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa, and it tastes great mixed with the sweet vanilla yogurt.

plain greek yogurt sweetened with stevia, then I add frozen fruit, or sometimes vanilla extract, nutmeg and crushed walnuts, or sometimes cocoa powder. The stevia, which is a natural plant extract, is very sweet but it lacks the sugar aftertaste on the tongue so I sometimes add a teaspoon or two of sugar.

sugar free jelly (jello)
cocoa in cottage cheese with a little sweetner makes a great pudding.

I bought a box of nectarines at Costco this week. Wow! They are so sweet, and juicy! That's a zero effort sweet fix.

I also love smoothies made with a banana and some frozen berries (cherries are probably my favorite).

I've also been experimenting with cooking with almond flour (due to celiac). There is a recipe on www.glutenfreediva.com for almond flour cookies that is great. Not low cal/low fat, but the almond flour makes a nice cookie, and one or two small ones really stick with me. No sugar highs and lows.

This works great for me!...

2 frozen bananas (ripe)
1/4 cup (more or less) of frozen blueberries ( I use ones we picked in season! Yum)
raw whole almonds OR granola OR chocolate chips.

Put frozen bananas in food processor and mix for a couple of minutes. Scrape down sides as needed. Comes out like soft serve ice cream. Add frozen blueberries and whatever else you enjoy on ice cream. (I enjoy the 3 items listed above)

This is a great way to get your fruit servings and it TOTALLY satisfying! emoticon

Fruit as a sweet treat is probably going to be a common theme in this thread. Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute I use occasionally. I like melting unsweetened baking chocolate and mixing in a tsp or two of xylitol. It satisfies my desire for chocolate candy and doesn't trigger more cravings.

I love the sugar free popsicles. They are not really healthy per se, but with only 15 calories per popsicle they are great to manage a sugar craving and not bust the calories for your day. They come in grape, cherry and orange at my supermarket (Wal-Mart).

Frozen fruit, helps if it is ripe when frozen. Strawberries, melon chunks, grapes. Pop em in your mouth and let them melt - better than any candy for me.

i won't lie...my sweet tooth isn't so easily satisfied lol. the only health alternatives i've found that satisfy my need for sugar are...plain, lowfat yogurt with raw sugar, frozen ORGANIC *MUST be organic--organic grapes are EXTREMELY sweet and juicy* red grapes, and coffee with raw sugar (and that's not all that healthy but it's better than a pack of candy)!

Not as healthy as fruit but a fudgesicle (40 cal) does the trick for me it gives me an ice cream and a chocolate fix at the same time.

Berries, any and all of them. And in this weather stick a cup of berries, bit of orange juice, and maybe some fatfree yogurt in the blender and you have smoothie awesomeness!

I cut up a granny smith apple and then drizzle some caramel ice cream syrup on top.

Tastes like a caramel apple! As long as you keep control of the syrup......it is good for you too!
