But for those wanting to lose weight or havinghealth issues with sugar, your sweet tooth can be a little difficult to manage and you’ll sometimes find yourselffeeling deprived. Fortunately there are ways to satisfy your sweet cravings without sacrificing your health.Here is a list of top eight healthy desserts.1. Grilled fruits. Some would advise having fruits as an alternative for sweets. It’s good advice but peoplerarely follow it because it isn’t as sugary as candy. If that’s the case, take your favorite fruit then toss it into thegrill. Grilling fruits such as pineapple, pear, peach, banana, and apple, make them sweeter because the heatreleases the fruits natural sugar and caramelizes it. Now these are healthy sugars that don’t pack a lot ofcalories.2. Dark chocolate barks. Melt dark chocolate then spread it evenly on thin foil. Sprinkle other ingredientssuch as dried fruits or sunflower seeds then refrigerate it for five minutes then break it to smaller pieces. Darkchocolate is good for the heart and has less sugar than milk chocolate. Plus, the fruits and nuts make it tastierand healthier. Remember, consume in moderation.

You can also add some whole grain cereals for a tastier andhealthier punch.4. Healthy smoothie. Smoothies can still be a healthier alternative. Make a healthy smoothie by combiningfresh fruits and berries with skim milk, fat free yogurt and ice in your blender. Blend until smooth.

If you’re craving for more flavor then mix in some of your favorite fruitsand berries.
  5. 5. 7. Oatmeal cookies. Cookie lovers don’t need to be deprived as well. Instead of indulging in high-sugarchocolate chip cookies, go for the healthier route with oatmeal cookies.
