Sugar cravings are the hardest, aren't they? Even if you don't generally have a sweet tooth, everyone is seized with cravings for something luscious and sweet now and then! And because of what we know about the evils of refined sugar, these cravings tend to be suppressed...only to rear their ugly heads even more violently later on. It also doesn't help that sweet foods tend to be the 'extras' in our daily diet (desserts, candy, drinks), leading to an excess of calories and much, much guilt.
If only there was a way to satisfy sugar cravings with no actual refined sugar! Well, here's one better - how about satisfying your sugar cravings as part of your main meal? No excess calories, but with all of the nutrients, taste, and satisfaction.
Enter: Banana Split Yogurt Parfait! Layers of natural yogurt, berry & banana granolas, chocolatey cacao nibs, and fresh fruit. Alternately creamy and crunchy, bursting with flavour, and oh-so-satisfying. And perfect for a meal or snack!
