So I don’t know about you, but night time is when I crave something sweet (the most!). Andrew and I could have just finished dinner and I’m like okay, when’s dessert…!?
Not kidding. It’s like I have a separate compartment just for the sweet stuff. I swear I do 😉
So while I DO love my wine and milk chocolate, I don’t find that it is necessarily the most beneficial for my health or my waistline each night.
So instead I try and figure out ways of satisfying my sweet tooth, so that I am content and putting some healthier foods into my body.
I want to share with you today four of my favorite “go to” healthier desserts that I like to enjoy in the evening. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy my fair share of wine and chocolate in the evenings, but I think it is smart to mix it up and try some other things, especially if they are healthier for you 😉
