Greek Yogurt Recipes: The Sundae (VIDEO)


You know me, I’m always thinking of ways to make unhealthy Westernized foods healthier by using the Mediterranean diet as a template.

One rather warm late afternoon, I found myself craving a tiny bit of sweet and the watermelon wasn’t going to cut it, and instantly¬†thought of my beloved gelato.

So then, I asked myself: why not take a traditional desert like the ‘sundae’ and create its perfect twin, a Greek yogurt-style sundae!

 

Ingredients


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, low fat
  • 1/2 cup berries
  • 2 inch piece, dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp dried pecans, chopped

Directions

  • Melt the chocolate over medium heat and set aside.
  • You're going to assemble the dish by taking one cup of Greek yogurt, putting it in a nice bowl. I like to do two little separate serving sizes to make it look like two scoops of ice cream.
  • Next you're going to take the melted chocolate and you're going to lightly drizzle it over the yogurt.
  • Add a half a cup of the thawed raspberries on top.
  • You're going to top with one tablespoon of coconut flakes and pecans. Enjoy!
