What if we told you that you could have an ice cream-like treat for dessert, and that it would help you slim down? You probably wouldn’t believe us, since most of us think of settling into the couch with a pint and a spoon when we think of after-dinner snacking. But with this healthy reinvention of the creamy dessert, you can indulge and slim down.
Transform your Greek yogurt into frozen yogurt bark--like the holiday candy classic, only frozen and good for you! The blogger behind this sweet recipe, Gemma, might be known for her over-the-top baked desserts, but we love this departure from her normal cupcakes and cookies. The simple and satisfying dessert boasts protein-packed base (Greek yogurt) and healthy mix-ins like peanut butter, pistachios, and cocoa powder. For an extra health boost, look for a cocoa powder that hasn’t been alkalized, a process that mellows the flavor of the powder but also strips out the health benefits. It will say "non-alkalized" right on the label!
She offers three different variations on the recipe to get you inspired, but you can add your favorite mix-ins to create a custom flavor combination. There’s even a suggested combination of cocoa powder, hazelnut, and banana to give you the irresistible taste of Nutella without the high calorie count. Pick your favorite combo and whip some up tonight--your waistline will thank you.
Watch the short video below to see exactly how each of the three versions is made.
