When you were a kid, you probably didn't take a second thought before devouring that cupcake at a classmate's birthday party, or that ice cream sandwich on a hot summer day, the cream dripping down your hand, and you gladly licking up every last bit.

But as anyone living a well-balanced lifestyle can attest to, kicking the sweet treat habit only leads to secret binging. So, rather than deprave yourself of treats, how about redefine the ingredients you associate with them?
