Tackle Your Sweet Tooth with Healthy Treats

Totally Instagram-worthy

The next time you try to satisfy your sweet tooth by reaching for the O’Henry bar you’ve had stored in the freezer, take a moment to breathe, think of your butt (Jenna Marbles logic, not mine) and opt for the fruit-route instead. Fruit is an amazing alternative to the salt and sugar that you crave in junk food. Try some of the items below to save yourself from another sugar-induced guilt-trip.

Not only are fruit smoothies nutritious and delicious, but they act as envy-inducing Instagram snaps. You can find millions of recipes on the internet, but one of my favourites is from Australian Health blogger, Emma Jaye Patterson

What you need:
  • 1 1/2 scoop of protein powder
  • A handful of strawberries
  • A handful of raspberries
  • Ice
Directions: Mix in blender and serve with muesli on top.

Chocolate covered goji berries

If you must have a little bit of chocolate goodness in your life, these dark chocolate goji berries will become your new go-to snack. The mixture of the sweet berry, along with the dark chocolate balance each other beautifully.
