      Frozen blueberries

      Frozen blueberries aren’t just for smoothies or desserts. They’re a great cold and refreshing snack without the added sugar. If you want to go a step further and add a little protein to your snack, dip fresh or frozen blueberries in plain nonfat Greek yogurt using a toothpick and place on a baking sheet.

      Chocolate Dipped Fruit

      Combat those not-so-healthy chocolate bars with naturally sweetened, nutrient-rich fruit, dipped in a small amount of dark chocolate. For strawberries, dip the berries into melted dark chocolate (72% or higher) and refrigerate until hardened. Once frozen, roll in melted dark chocolate (72% or higher) and return to the freezer to allow the chocolate to harden. For a fun addition, sprinkle over a crunchy topping like chopped nuts before refrigerating or freezing.
