How to Settle a Sweet Tooth

We all get a sweet tooth now and then. Whether it’s in the morning, in an afternoon slump, or after dinner, it hits us at one point or another. We don’t need a lot, just a few M&Ms or a scoop of ice cream, right?

I usually crave something sweet after lunch or dinner. Since I’m a big proponent of following your cravings and definitely not limiting yourself to the point of unhappiness, I satisfy it — with frozen grapes.

Frozen grapes are my favoriteeee sweet treat, especially in the summertime. They’re typically recommended by dietitians for children to replace candy, but I recommend them for anyone. (Because who doesn’t like candy?) They’re easy to just pop in your mouth, which makes them perfect for a movie night or hot afternoon in the park. They’re also super easy to make (Step 1: freeze grapes.), so you don’t have to worry about prep or clean up.

Wash grapes, freeze overnight, enjoy.

They taste like candy, but sans junk.

Pro tip: Frozen green grapes are perfect to drop in a glass of white wine or sangria to keep it cool without watering it down!

    Agh I wish these worked for me! I have tried them before, but somehow my sweet tooth knows I am trying to trick it! I have found for me, I just have to limit it to one sweet thing per day, and that way I can get by. Great idea to share though Lisa :)

    Growing up my mom would make frozen grapes during the summer. It was some me and my siblings enjoyed and looked forward to. :)

    Yes! I have not found any organic grapes as of late but I cannot wait to freeze them when I do!
