Frozen Grapes: Nature's Popsicle
I have a serious sweet tooth. I have to have something sweet after dinner (and usually lunch too). I had a friend recommend frozen grapes to me this Fall and I've never turned back. Buy a bag of red grapes (I've never tried any other color, but I assume they would work). Rinse the grapes and remove them from the vine. Then, put them in a tuperware and freeze for a few hours. They are delicious! Not only do frozen foods take longer to eat (in turn you end up consuming fewer calories) but they have a lower glycemic index than anything else you could eat for dessert (ice cream, brownies, cookies, etc.). These are my go-to snack of choice for the 9 pm munchies.
