What's your "Sweet Treat?"

I've eliminated excess sugar from my diet. So far I've lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks just from changing my diet. Though I will not be doing it just yet, I want to know what are some healthy alternatives to having a "treat" but still not loading my body with sugars and/or artificial flavors. I generally try to consume less than 5g of sugar with whatever I eat. Any suggestions?

    Grapes, strawberries and apples have almost completely replaced sugar and candy as my "sweet tooth" snacks. I also am a big fan of the weight watchers fudgsicles. I have some Edy's no sugar added fruit bars in my freezer, but haven't tried them yet. Another thing I tend to consider a "treat" is either some chips and salsa or carrots and Marzetti's fat free ranch dip (I swear, it tastes the same as the full fat dip, LOVE).

    A serving of these chocolate tarts have 4g of sugar. I am IN LOVE with them.

    And the ingredients are super simple: dark cocoa, organic cold pressed coconut oil, organic maple syrup, almond flour, sea salt.

    True North's almond, cashew, and pecan nut clusters. Organic sugar (barely) and a whole lot of yumminess.

    ETA . It has a bit more sugar than that, but honestly for a "treat" you shouldnt deprive yourself because its a moderation thing. If you should happen to fall off the wagon, you dont want to binge because you havnt had a truely sweet treat in forever. I eat 5 clusters for 170 calories and all the added benefits of great nuts.

    It might sound a bit odd, but a cup of black tea with lemon juice and Stevia added to taste seems to hit the spot for me :-)
