5 Quick + Easy Healthy Snack Ideas For Sugar Lovers

If you are anything like me, I cannot go one day without having something sweet. I am awful when it comes to my sweet tooth. Having a sweet tooth can sometimes make it extremely difficult to stick to a diet, especially when you are trying to cut back on sugar. Whilst I am being more health conscious, I still want to indulge in sweet treats from time to time without the guilt. So here it is, my top 5 go-to snack recipes when I am craving something sweet!

I am not a big fan of skyr yoghurt on its own, but when you add fresh fruit, digestive biscuits and honey, it becomes an incredibly delicious, healthy snack/treat. The beauty of this snack is that you can add any fruit you prefer or have lying around the house. My favourite combo for this recipe is strawberry, blueberry, raspberries and bananas. This can also be a great idea for breakfast as well if you need something quick and easy!


50g strawberries, cut into thin slices 

50g blueberries 

50g raspberries 

1/2 x banana, cut into small pieces

2 x reduced fat digestive biscuits, broken into small pieces 

30ml honey

225g natural skyr yoghurt 

a handful of crushed walnuts

This is such a simple snack but I have found that this treat works wonders when I have a craving for something sweet, especially after dinner in the evenings. Feel free to use whatever dark chocolate you have lying around the house. My favourite for this recipe is Lindt excellence dark honeycomb. This combo with the strawberries is to die for! Add some crushed hazelnuts on-top if you want some extra flavour + crunch. 


100g strawberries 

50g Lindt excellence dark honeycomb

25g hazelnuts, crushed (optional)

I am a huge lover of banana and peanut butter, so this is one of my favourite snacks if I am looking for something a little more filling. You can really make this your own and add a bunch of ingredients you like, but for me, this simple + classic recipe works a treat.


1 x slice of toasted, multi-seeded bread

1 x smashed banana 

30g Meridian peanut butter, smooth

When I first came across smoothie bowls, I thought they were all style and no substance. I thought there were simply another trend so people can take instagramable photos of them and pretend to promote a 'healthy' lifestyle because of it. But I was completely wrong, and they are actually so refreshing and easy to make in a matter or minutes! For me it feels like eating sorbet, which is why I love this recipe and it is perfect as a desert or even for breakfast! All you need is some frozen fruit, milk, protein powder (this is optional), toppings of your choice + a blender.



100g frozen mixed berries 

1 x frozen banana, sliced 

2 - 3 tbsp almond milk (or your preferred milk)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)


1 x sliced peach 

1 tbsp desiccated coconut (shredded)

1 tbsp chia seeds 

50g granola 

30g dried goji berries

This recipe takes a little longer than the others, but the beauty of overnight oats is you can make multiple jars and eat it over a few days. It is 100% worth it for the incredible flavour! This recipe is great if you are getting a little bored of regular oats and you can really add any toppings you fancy to make it even better. Simply add all the ingredients (in the order listed) to a jar or a storage container. Do no shake the jar/container. Seal the jar/container + leave overnight in the fridge. I add a few no-added sugar dark chocolate chips on top for extra flavour at the end!

INGREDIENTS (to make one jar):

30g rolled oats 

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 

tiny pinch of ground ginger (if you have this available)

1/2 medium sized apple, cored + diced (you may choose to leave the skin on if you wish) 

100ml almond milk (or your preferred milk)

1 1/2 tsp honey 

natural skyr yoghurt
