You know how sometimes you just need that little “treat” fix whether it’s for breakfast or just a snack? Well, I do, and it was that sweet tooth beckoning.

Now, it might sound a little strange, but don’t knock it until you try it, okay? 😉 And, just let this be a little forewarning if you’re used to having things be super-sweet, this probably isn’t going to cut it for you. But, if you’ve been following a relatively low sugar diet and enjoying natural sugars like the sweetness of fruit, this should give you just the hint of sweetness you’re looking for!
