Fruit is a great low-calorie and filling snack that satisfies your sweet tooth without making you fat. Whether you eat it fresh, frozen, dried or juiced, fruit is a much better -- and nutritious -- option than candy or sweets.

Fresh Fruit Salad

Fruit salads are a good way to enjoy a variety of fruits at one time. Whenever possible, opt for fresh fruit salads. A cup of Panera Bread's fruit salad only has 60 calories and 0g of fat, according to Calorie King.

Canned Fruit Salad

Canned fruit salads are also low in calories, but they may contain added sugars. Fruit salads canned in water are the lowest in calories. A one-cup serving of canned fruit in water contains only 74 calories and 0.2g of fat, according to Calorie King. A cup of fruit salad in juice contains 125 calories and 0g of fat, and a cup of fruit salad in heavy syrup contains 186 calories and 0.3g of fat.

Benefits

Fresh or canned, a serving of fruit salad is packed full of the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs for good heart health, smooth digestion and a healthy immune system.
