When that dessert craving beckons, feel good about reaching for something totally tasty that will fulfill your lust for sweet without wreaking havoc on your healthy diet. Plowing through that box of cookies? Probably not the wisest idea. Here are some happier, healthier options that satisfy big time. See ya later, guilt.

1. Make your Splurges Count
Making healthy choices is super important, but so is treating yourself to an occasional splurge. Skip the stale Halloween candy languishing way, way back in your cabinet and choose something worth the caloric price. Grandma's famous cheesecake? Birthday cupcakes...the kind you absolutely love with buttercream frosting? That sounds like a great bet. Savor and enjoy!

2. Pick A Healthier, Wholesome Go-To Treat
It's ok to incorporate a simple, real, and delicious sweet into your daily routine—we promise! Choose something smart and satisfying like a Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding. It's made with real-deal ingredients. Count to six. That's the number of ingredients in Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding. The cute little cups are generous enough to fulfill your sweet tooth, yet will keep your portions in check. Score.

3. Fruit is Fabulous
When it comes to sugar, not everything is created equal. Fresh fruit is full of fiber to help you stay satiated, packed with vitamins and minerals, and totally tasty. If you're bored with your morning banana, switch it up...blend yourself a satisfying smoothie, or mix OJ, puréed bananas, and low-fat yogurt and freeze into fruity pops.

4.  Get In a Healthy Groove 
Waiting too long between makes the siren call of sugary, fatty foods all the more enticing. Eat every three to five hours to keep your blood sugar stable. Protein, fiber-rich foods like whole grains and produce fill you up and fuel your body with quality nutrients. That way you can choose sweets when you really want them, not because your empty stomach and foggy mind demand a donut.
