5 Sugar Free Treats that Kids will Love

8:35 PM

Get on the road to a sugar free diet by trying some of these unique blends of natural and wholesome foods. Kids want a sweet treat that satisfies a built-up craving for candies and cakes, made popular by candy manufacturers. By teaching youngsters that a sugar free diet does not mean giving up great taste, you can start a new way of life in your household, and even your community.

Chocolate Flavoured Whipped Cream and Fruit

Who would think that whipped cream could be sugar free, but delicious? 1 pint of whipping cream and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract is all it takes to whip up a sugar free treat. Try mixing a tablespoon of cocoa power in for a chocolate taste and drop on sliced bananas and strawberries. If a little sweetness is needed, add a teaspoon of Natvia to your mix.

After School Treats

If your kids are like most, they make a bee line for the refrigerator as soon as they come through the door. Don't wait for them to grab unhealthy foods to calm a grumbling stomach. Instead, have a counter filled with nutritious finger foods waiting for them. Nuts, granola, or crackers and homemade salsa are a few healthy foods that are yummy and sugar free.

A Breakfast Delight

Kids love waffles. Make your favourite sugar free waffle recipe and substitute syrup with a version that will win you praise. Add 1/3 cup honey and 1 tablespoon butter to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add prepared fruit puree (about 1/2 cup) and simmer for 2-3 minutes. This is a heavenly way to start the day.

Lunchtime Energy Bars

Make your own energy bars that put candy to shame. This is the perfect treat for kids that need a pick-me-up in the middle of the day. Wrap in brightly-coloured cellophane and all the kids will know there is something special inside. Here is all you need:

1 cup almonds
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup dried cherries
6 pitted dates
3 tablespoons coconut

Throw it all in a blender and mix. Turn into a greased 8 x 8 pan, press to the edges and refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove and cut into bars.

For Ice Cream Lovers

Giving up sugar does not mean giving up a cool, creamy bowl of ice cream. Get creative and try this recipe that will take care of that sweet tooth.

Mix together:

3 large packages sugar free pudding (not instant)
8 eggs
3 large cans skim evaporated milk
4 tablespoons Natvia

Heat until thick and remove to cool. Use a mixer to remove any lumps. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Remove and add 2 teaspoons vanilla and stir. Place in a 1 gallon container and add a little 2% milk to bring close to the top. Mix, freeze and enjoy!

Buying sugar loaded treats is easier than being creative in making treats that kids love, but the habits that are formed will last a lifetime. Visit the Sweeter Life Club website for more great sugar free recipes!
