If you were to rewind back to my youth, we never had dessert after supper and if I was to choose a treat it would be something salty like chips over something sweet.
I think my sweet tooth developed in my university days. Actually, I think I just liked everything in my university days now that I think about it.
I generally have a little something after dinner just about every day. Sometimes it's a bowl of berries with cool whip, sometimes it's chocolate pudding or a few squares of dark chocolate. More often than not, it's a bowl of frozen yogurt.
With Lent upon us, I decided to give up chocolate. This eliminates 90% of my desired after dinner treats.
Desperate times call for desperate measures: I've turned into a tea drinking gramma!
Tea has really helped me in the evenings, believe it or not. I have them with no sugar, and just a touch of milk. It warms me up, fills me up AND satisfies my sweet tooth.
Some of my favorites:
Spicey orangey goodness.
Lemon Blueberry. I had this one last night for the first time, and oh my... it's deeeeeeeeelicious!
And for an extra treat: Apple Cider. This borders on the almost 'too sweet' category, but I can't lie.. I realllllllllly like it. All of my research tells me it's only 10 cals a cup, but I can't help but feel that it's wrong.
Happy Tea-Drinking Tuesday!
