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.
- 1⁄4 banana, sliced
- 3 sliced strawberries
- 1⁄4 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)
- Arrange fruits in dessert cups.
- Heat fruit mixture 40 seconds in microwave. (Creates sophisticated-looking pool of berry juice.)
- Stir artificial sweetener & 1 tsp Jello powder into the yogurt.
- Spoon yogurt onto fruits; top all with fudge sauce.
- *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.
