Does anyone have any suggestions for low calorie options, beside fruit, to satisfy a sweet tooth? Been eating a lot of fruit, grapes, pineapple, plums, apples, but I'm in the mood for something a little different to satisfy my sweet tooth. Thx!

FF SF pudding usually works for me, for something different with the apple microwave it cut up with a bit of vanilla and cinnamon and top with ff whipped topping, ice pops or fudgsicles for cold or FF hot choc for something warm, Rootbeer float with Diet Root Beer and Breyer's Smooth & Dreamy Light Ice Cream (if you can handle the extra IC in the house), teddygrams, small square of dark choc broken up into your fruit, Anglefood cake if you can keep to a small portion lol.

Pudding is usually my go to, but if I need something chewy or cake-y I'll go for the 100 cal packs or the 90 cal brownies. Those are much more carbs, but sometimes when I just need something those are satisfying without killing my calories. I have also just discovered Special K Sweet & Salty Popcorn Chips and I love them, they are sweet and salty and you can eat I think 28 for 120 calories. You can do just about anything just keep your portion sizes in mind.

SF pudding is the bomb! I LOVE the Creme Brulee flavor of rice pudding (Jello brand), especially with a little bit of chopped walnuts sprinkled on top.

I haven't tried the popcorn chips (but now I really want to!) but the Orville Redenbacher mini-bags of SmartPop! (healthier version) Kettle Korn is pretty amazing. Lots of sweet/salty snacking for the calorie buck, if you like that sort of thing. Smile

Another favorite of mine is 97% fat free, no sugar added ice cream sandwiches from Walmart - their brand (Great Value). Super tasty, like you cannot tell the difference tasty, and not too shabby on the calories. 110, I think - and a crapton of fiber, weirdly enough.

Oh, and apples! I haven't 'baked' them, but I do love to sprinkle sliced apples with Stevia (because it's crunchy like sugar, not because they need the extra sweetness - somehow that makes it a different experience than just fruit, ha!) and some pumpkin pie spice - like a little mini apple pie-flavored treat.

There's a recipe for a tofu-based chocolate mousse in the recipes section. I am generally against copycat versions of real foods, but this one is good enough that I can overcome that.

I make handcrafted chocolates and now I'm buying sugar free chocolate and making the caramel using Just Like Brown Sugar (97 carbs, 96 dietary fiber = 1 g!) I love chocolate and hate it when someone tells me to have a piece of fruit to satisfy a sweet craving. I've been buying Weight Watchers (Russell Stovers) English Toffees - 58 calories for one and have it with a cup of coffee, using Coffee Mate sugar free French Vanilla and a bit of Stevita powder and it's like the 'old days'! Find what you like and go for it but stay off the sugar.

After being diagnosed with Type 2 in June, it sent me scrambling for 'substitute' recipes - you'd be amazed, or at least I was, at what's available for 'us'!

Good luck!

Ghirardelli cocoa 86% Dark Chocolate, not as sweet as the 72% one, but it is so intense that 2 small squares are all you want. I buy two large bars at Walgreens/
Hershey's now makes dark chocolate kisses. You can eat 5 of those for 100 calories.

15 baked miniature phyllo tart shells (one 2.1-ounce box)
1 6 - 8 ounce carton low-fat lemon or low fat vanilla yogurt
2/3 cup fresh blueberries, raspberries, and/or cut-up strawberries
Fill phyllo tart shells with yogurt. Top with blueberries, raspberries, and/or cut-up strawberries. Serve at once or cover and chill up to 3 hours before serving. Makes 15 miniature tarts.

I recommend a tiny piece of the real thing. Buy the best you can afford, cut it into several pieces, and freeze the extra.
