These only look and taste sinfully gorgeous. But they're super health boosts full of protein and the top antioxidant. Whee! Get creative with more combinations. Creativity's such a blast.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 banana, sliced
  • 3 sliced strawberries
  • 14 cup blueberries (frozen ok)
  • 4 ounces sugar-free non-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon artificial sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon orange jelly powder, Lime, Black Cherry etc. flavor
  • 2 tablespoons fudge sauce (each tbsp 20 calories. Mix equal amounts unsweetened *non-alkalinized* cocoa & Splenda. Then add wat)

Directions

  1. Arrange fruits in dessert cups.
  2. Heat fruit mixture 40 seconds in microwave. (Creates sophisticated-looking pool of berry juice.)
  3. Stir artificial sweetener & 1 tsp Jello powder into the yogurt.
  4. Spoon yogurt onto fruits; top all with fudge sauce.
  5. *Emphasis on non-alkalinized cocoa, because alkalinization (Dutch process) destroys the antioxidants. Hershey's is good, the little brown box in baking aisles. Trader Joes' cocoa is also very good.

What I love about this recipe is the fruit, yogurt, and chocolate sauce. But what I didn't really care for was the jell-o powder. I felt that the fruit and yogurt alone was enough flavor and sweetness that the jell-o powder was unnecessary and distracting. You listed multiple flavors, so I used cherry flavor, and it didn't mesh well with the blueberries and banana in my opinion. If I were going to use the jello again I would use a flavor that matched the berries I was using, but I think I'd rather leave it out altogether. What I did find completely brilliant however is your chocolate sauce. I had never thought of making it myself before and I think it's fantastic! I will definitely be making it myself now instead of buying the store-bought kind. And it gives me another use for my raw cacao powder that is full of healthy goodness. I will make this again, but just without the jello. Made for PAC Spring 2014.
