We all tend to hit that sugar low some point in the afternoon when you lose focus at work and sometimes right before bed. You might’ve ditched the old school sweets and traded them in for some dark chocolate and maybe even some almond/nut butter only to find yourself now getting hooked on those superfoods. Here are 5 different ways you can curb those sugar cravings:

Coconut water can serve as a delicious treat. Pour your coconut water over ice then add a little lime juice. This combination isn’t only refreshing but will help curb your sugar craving while providing hydrating potassium and mood-boasting magnesium.
Chocolate Almond Milk
Unsweetened chocolate almond milk with a cinnamon stick can be the perfect low calorie 8oz option to treat your sweet tooth.
Chia Seed Pudding
You’ve probably been a witness to the new chia seed pudding craze that’s been taking place. Popular for good reason, chia seed puddings are a great way to make you full and regulate your blood sugar levels. Make your pudding by soaking 3 tablespoons of chia seed in 12oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk for 15 minutes. Then, add a little cinnamon and ground vanilla bean for a sweet touch.
If you’re not a fan of green juice, we’d like to tell you that you’ve been missing out. Green juice is the most power packed option of them all. Some veggies are naturally sweet when juiced and it’ll help trick your taste buds into thinking you’ve had something sweet. If vegetables juices are new to you, you can add 1/2 an apple to sweeten it up a bit more. Green juices are the perfect remedy for a sugar craving.
