Waking up in the middle of the night with a grumbling stomach makes it difficult to fall back to sleep. I find that getting a small snack helps me to keep my stomach from issuing further complaints and allowing me to get back to sleep. Of course, I prefer sweet things a lot and my midnight snack tends to be more along the lines of a dessert. Below, I’ve listed 10 healthy ideas for midnight desert to give you some ideas the next time your tummy grumbles in the middle of the night.

You could always substitute hot cocoa, but I actually prefer the taste of chocolate milk. I don’t make it boiling hot. I find that luke-warm chocolate milk makes me feel a bit sleepy, whereas super hot milk makes me too warm to fall back asleep. If you don’t like chocolate, then you can warm some plain milk and add a bit of honey or sugar for additional flavor.
