Tri Treats: Tangy, Sweet, Chocolatey [all low calorie. yum.]

Sometimes after a tough workout (or let’s be real, on a day off), cravings for sweet foods run rampant. These three yummy treats below (tangerine sorbet, yogurt strawberries and chocolate glazed donuts) are all low calorie, easy to make, and a great way to add a little sweet to your day, whether it’s before, after or instead of a workout šŸ™‚

Tangerine Sorbet

The YoungTri team came across this yummy recipe in the New York Times a few days ago. The sorbet is light, refreshing and can be made with a number of different ingredients. It’s simple to make, and only uses water, sugar, honey and tangerine.

Sorbet is one of my favorite treats, and the simplicity and flavor in this recipe makes it anĀ irresistibleĀ treat to try!

Yogurt Strawberries

Looking for something even more simple than the recipe above or a little bit more sweet than tangy? Try yogurt strawberries. All you have to do is dip strawberries in yogurt (can be a soy, almond or rice alternative), freeze and enjoy.
