Low Sugar Dessert Bento

I made myself a quick bento for dessert, and I made it as low sugar as I could.
I am trying to get rid of as much added sugar as possible, so I am really watching added sugars. I was already doing this, but from now on, you may see more mention of this on my blog.
  • 1/2 Clementine (This has 3.4g sugar, but it is natural sugar so I am not counting it)
  • 1/8 cup Cocoa Roast Almonds (only .5g sugar)
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce (8g sugar. This is natural sugar so I am not counting it)
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon (.1g sugar, also natural)
  • Sugar Free Raspberry Jello (0g sugar)
All together it's only .5g (added) sugar... for my entire dessert. There is actually 12g sugar, but almost all of it is natural sugars, and I am not worried about that at all. If I was worried about natural sugars I wouldn't eat bananas (14.4g sugar for 1 medium banana)!
It was so good, I took the picture twice... actually this picture shows that the cinnamon was supposed to be heart shaped.


  1. Cuuuute! ....Jello is scary, but YAY on the rest of it! ;-P

  2. At least it wasn't a human heart shaped jello! lol
