I’ve put together a list of my favourite low sugar fruits for all you fruitaholics. I call both of my girls “fruitaholics” as they literally eat us out of house and home when it comes to our fruit basket. Now, I know its better than reaching for the biscuit tin, but fruits still contain sugar. With sugar being in basically everything these days, I hunted down the best fruit for you in terms of sugars (per 100g).
Here are my favourite 11 low sugar fruits:
- Lemons and limes.
More on the sour side but also high in Vitamin C, and they only have a gram or two of sugar.
With only 4 grams of sugar per 100 grams, these are great for you, plus they’re full of fiber.
Strawberries are surprisingly sweet while still low in sugar, with approximately 6 grams per serving.
Blackberries are much like strawberries in sugar content and high in fiber, but are also high in antioxidants.
Apparently these are considered a berry too. But having less than strawberries and Blackberries at 6 grams.
Try not to enjoy that zingy taste of Grapefruit without adding sugar on top as these delicious treats only have 8 to 9 grams of sugar.
Not exactly the thing that comes to mind when thinking of fruit, but an entire avocado only has only 1 gram of sugar — I’ll take two!
Mmmmm, summer right there. Watermelon’s only have between 6 and 7 grams of sugar. A great summer snack.
A what? We call it a Spanspek or sweet melon in South Africa. With only slightly more sugar than a watermelon, it’s a great alternative to most foods with all their high sugar content.
Well known for being high in vitamin C (around 10 grams) they are very low in calories, with less than 70 calories per 100g.
These furry guys which were first found in Northwest China, only have about 8 grams of sugar.
There you go! Oh, and remember —- everything in moderation. We need only have 2-3 fruits a day (I’m talking to my girls now)!
