So I'm starting a new eating regime, but the time that I really struggle is after dinner. I crave sweet food, ice cream, chocolate, bikkies! And I know this is the worst time of day to eat such foods.
I'm looking for inspiration for something healthy but yummy!
What do you have as an after dinner snack?

After dinner snacks

Firstly, good luck with your new plan!
That is the hardest time of the day for me too. I have a huge pot of peppermint tea and that helps me avoid junk at that time of the night. Or if I'm really struggling, I steam a pear and sprinkle some cinnamon on top - its very sweet and hits the spot. You could also try a small square of dark choc (no bigger than a credit card size)

I love snacking after dinner too...and am generally not bothered by it :P
However, I second the idea of a pot of tea. I find a pot of herbal tea (usually lemongrass from the garden) along with something small and sweet (eg. a couple of squares of chocolate) very satisfying.
Another sweet but healthy snack (provided you only have a little) would be bliss balls - so easy to make, and very versatile...this was the last lot I made:
1 cup dates (pre-soaked, keep the water)
1 cup unsalted cashews (any nuts work...though soft ones are easier to work with)
a few tablespoons of cocoa
Put ingredients in a food processor, add date-water if it's too stiff, a little honey if too bitter.
Roll into balls & dip in coconut.

I have fruit. Banana. Sultanas. Apple. Sometimes make a bit of a fruit salad.
Banana sandwich. It's got a sort of sweet hit but better than tackling a bag of Jaffas.

I find a cup of tea with a bit of honey in it normally works, but if it doesn't 1 biscuit or a fun size chocolate (100 calories)

I can be perfect all day and that blardy after dinner time snack gets me too... I just polished off a large chocolate sundae......

Coconut, almond, date & apple whizzed up served with Greek yoghurt. Yummo!
