Full fat Greek yogurt is a thick and creamy blank slate for whatever dessert flavors that you want to create. The full fat, Plain, Greek is a sensory delight with barely a hint of the tanginess often associated with yogurt. Because it’s high in protein, ranging from about 12-23 grams depending on what brand you get, and has significant fat, about 11 grams, it will really satisfy your hunger. Add the right ingredients and satisfy a dessert craving every time. If you add fruit, you will also get a dose of healthy fiber that ups yogurt’s satiety factor and sticks with you for a long time. It’s full of bone and metabolism building calcium so dig in!
Just add lemon juice and your zero calorie sweetener of choice for a creamy, healthy dessert treat that mimics lemon pie. You can also use Lemonade flavor Crystal Light.
Add Crystal Light in whatever flavor that you desire for a fruit flavored treat. Add fruit in the same flavor or a complimentary flavor, such as Strawberry and Bananas, and create a huge, healthy dessert.
Chock Full O’ Nuts
One of my favorite combinations is Splenda or Swerve mixed into my yogurt with a peanut powder such as PB2. Walmart sells a house brand that I actually like better than PB2, and it’s cheaper! Add almonds or peanuts or whatever nuts that you like for a crunchy, sweet and salty treat. Add some Badia Trilogy Health Seeds for an extra protein punch and crunchy goodness. They will thicken the yogurt even more.
Last night I chopped up a juicy, ripe nectarine into super thick Fage yogurt, which is the highest in protein that I have found at 20 grams per cup. I then added Splenda to taste. It was a flashback to Peach Cobbler, summery and satisfying. I was not hungry for hours. After adding the nectarine to that cup of yogurt, I had a huge dessert that helped to fuel my imminent workout with the Iron.
Just add butterscotch flavoring to the yogurt with a little Swerve Brown Sweetener for a butterscotch sundae. You can also create butterscotch flavor with Brown Swerve and butter flavoring. The Brown Swerve has a slightly crunchy texture that is reminesent of cinnamon toast.
Speaking of Cinnamon… Rolls
I like to add Splenda or Brown Swerve and cinnamon to the yogurt with pecans. This is a Cinnamon Roll flavor that will rock your world. When you use the full fat yogurt this is a truly creamy, cinnamon delight.
Whatever flavor profile that you choose, this yogurt is sure to satisfy. Even people who normally don’t like yogurt like this thick, creamy, non-tangy treat. It’s a wonderful palette to experiment with whatever ingredients tickle your fancy. Explore this wonderful, healthy food today.
