Try a Low Calorie Dessert with Vitamin C and Calcuim
Strawberry Yogurt Bites
Seems like we just recovered from pigging out during the last three holidays. Now we’ve got the Super Bowl and Valentines Day just around the corner. You’ll most likely blow your New Year’s diet on those days. Who am I kidding? We plan on eating those high carb, high fat dishes as part of the celebration. Don’t blow that New Years diet just yet. Hold down those calories a bit with a Strawberry Yogurt Bite. An intense strawberry flavored dessert that’s cool and quenches that sweet tooth with a little vitamin C and calcium.
In the Kitchen
I live in the north so I wasn’t sure if I’d have to pay an arm and a leg for fresh Strawberries this time of year. Just so happens I caught them on sell for $2.00 a quart at a local market. Outside of the visual appeal, a cup of strawberries are packed with more vitamin C than an Orange. Combine a low fat or fat free strawberry yogurt with sugar free gelatin and we’re on our way to a low cal, guilt free dessert bite. Go ahead and lick the spoon.
Bruno Mars, The Lazy Song - I like this song because it reminds of those few weekends when I did nothing. Remember the first part of our mantra is “Look Good” which is a priority. This recipe is quick for the diva who needs to spend less time in the kitchen and more time taking a beauty nap before that date. Fluff up a satin pillow and relax. It’s simple and cost very little to make so you can use your Christmas cash for shopping at a post holiday sale.
3 6oz containers of low fat or fat free Strawberry Yogurt
