    I don't know how long you've been primal, but if you're just starting out...In my transition period, I've been taking bites or sips of whatever it was I was craving. I found that a bite or two, or a sip of soda killed the craving and now it's gotten to the point where I'm barely craving anything and when I do indulge, like the two sips of my fiance's coke that I had the other day, it was awful...way too sweet and syrupy. I actually had to rinse my mouth out.

    Berries and heavy cream has become my go-to dessert. Very yummy, especially strawberries.

    a little fruit. find Batty's Blueberry Coconut balls.

    I find now that I've ditched the sugar, even plain cream tastes quite sweet. For dessert sometimes I'll microwave half a pear and have that dusted with cinnamon and cream.

    If I can find a low carb cheesecake then I am in heaven! Otherwise, berries with heavy cream and nuts topped with a few pieces of dark chocolate works well.

    Banana Nut Butter cake has been perfect topped with whip cream or heated with butter.

    Cashew lara bar but it has 22g sugar from the dates so I have to be careful not to make that a habit.

    Smoothies with milk, coconut milk, berries and a tiny bit of maple syrup comes out just sweet enough.

    Green Goddess Pudding works well

    I have a sweet tooth but it really does subside and your tastes change after staying off the sugar for a while. 70% or darker chocolate or a cup of berries is plenty sweet for me now, and carrots and beets start to taste really sweet as well. I refuse to believe that a couple of squares of organic 70% chocolate is going to be the principal cause of anyone's undoing, when your neighbor is probably inhaling a pint of Ben & Jerry's right now.

    Dates, split open, stuffed with nut butter of your choice and dipped in coconut flakes. Just a few of these always cures my sweet cravings.

    I don't get it... she wants a cure for sweet tooth yet you guys recommend sweets.

    I'd say just go a week with very little carbs and no fruits at all. You'll crave only fats after that.

    I don't know as the OP wants a cure. It sounds like they just want some ideas for things that are primal and sweet? Not everyone here is watching carbs so much, atleast that's the way I read it.
