Blueberries, Strawberries and other summer type fruits
When these fruits are in season & the prices are low I will buy extra baskets weekly & freeze them. I then have them when they are no longer in season & the price has gone up. I use them in oatmeal,or a smoothie. It also eliminates buying them frozen when those prices are high to begin with....
If your craving something that is out of your calorie range, create and play in the kitchen to create a new healthier version. Another good one is to use substitues, freeze pudding cups for 3 hours - is just like soft ice cream and alot less calories and portion controlled.
I buy prepackaged yougurts and puddings and freeze early in the day, log it into my calories, and then later on in the day is a substitute for ice cream-
