4 Great Low-Calorie Snacks

Dieting can be really tiring and sometimes it’s very hard to stay on track, especially in the afternoon when your blood glucose level gets really low. This is why it’s important to have healthy, low-calorie but nutritious snacks! Here are a few great snack ideas.

1. Greek Yogurt and Berries

This is an amazing low-calorie, sweet snack. The recipe is very simple; you can make this snack in less than two minutes, literally! Greek yogurt tastes just like regular yogurt, but it has no fat and has only 130 calories a cup!


  • ½ cup of Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup of blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – it’s up to you!
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)

Mix all ingredients in your favorite cup. Sugar addicts will add a tablespoon of honey, but you can also use guava syrup. And the result – around 200 calories of pure deliciousness!

2. Grapes and Crackers

Mixing grapes and crackers? Yes, please! This is one of my favorite snacks ever. It may sound like an unusual combination, but it tastes amazing.


  • 1 cracker
  • A few grapes
  • Cream cheese

Spread some cream cheese onto your cracker and put a few halved grapes on top. Yummy!

3. Pineapple Smoothie

natural fruit juice

Fresh pineapple is a great fat burner and it tastes and smells amazing, but pineapple smoothie is more fun! This is a great snack choice when you feel like you desperately need some sugar to keep you up and running. How ever, make sure you have in the afternoon; around 5 or 6 o’clock pm. Try to avoid having sugar in the evening.

Ingredients (for two smoothies):

  • Pineapple (fresh & crushed)
  • Orange juice
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Bananas
  • Crushed Ice

Blend ½ cup of orange juice, ½ can of crushed pineapple, one banana and some crushed ice. Then add ½ carton of yogurt and keep blending until you get a nice, smooth drink. Bottoms up!

4. Hummus

If you prefer to have a salty snack, hummus is a great choice! Its health benefits are amazing, and it’s delicious. This popular Middle Eastern spread is very high in vitamin C, iron and full of protein. It will keep you full for quite a while. So, how can you make hummus?


  • 1 16oz can of chickpeas
  • ¼ cup of liquid from the chickpeas can
  • 11/2 tablespoons of tahini
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Separate the chickpeas from liquid. Blend all the remaining ingredients, and then add the liquid from the chickpeas can. Continue blending for another 5 minutes until it’s smooth. Add some olive oil and serve garnished with some parsley and veggies. Bon appétit!
