Are you looking for sugar-free snacks to help you curb your sugar cravings?
These sugar-free snack ideas are so good you won’t even miss the sugar!
Sugar cravings can be intense, especially if you have just given up sugar recently. It is so easy to give in and go back to your old eating habits and grab a snack filled with refined sugar. Having a few healthier choices on hand that you can grab quickly can save you from making a choice that you will regret.
These are some of our favorite sugar-free snacks. Many of these can be made ahead of time so they are ready when you need a quick snack.
Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on some sliced apples and you have an instant treat. These taste so much like apple pie but with no refined sugar. Cinnamon is known for helping your body process sugar too so it’s a great choice to combine with the apple.
Cheese and Crackers
Protein is fantastic for curbing sugar cravings and it fills you up too. Cheese and crackers give you a great protein and carb boost that will tide you over until your next meal.
Sugar-Free Energy Bites
I love making homemade energy bites to have on hand when a sugar craving strikes. Have you tried our Protein-Packed Cocoa Energy Bites yet? I always double the batch because my kids love them so much that they can knock out a regular batch in less than a day.
Peanut Butter on a Banana
Banana’s are naturally sweet and when you add a bit of peanut butter on top you have a really satisfying snack. If peanut butter isn’t your thing, roll the banana in just a bit of cocoa powder.
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Try making a green smoothie for a great boost of nutrition. If you want something a bit sweeter, we love this blueberry banana smoothie for a sweet (but sugar-free) treat.
Almond Butter in a Date
Dates are naturally sweet (and if you have never tried a fresh date you a seriously missing out). Remove the pit from your date and fill the center with just a bit of almond butter for a fantastic treat.
Sugar-Free Mint Gum
Sometimes you just need the taste of something sweet. Try chewing on a piece of sugar-free mint gum to curb your craving. I’ve heard people suggest that you try brushing your teeth when you want something sweet and that works surprisingly well too. Gum is a bit more portable though so it’s wroth keeping a few sticks in your bag when you are on the go.
