Skip the ice cream and try a healthier dessert tonight. Creamy Greek yogurt and warm berry sauce will make you feel like you are indulging without splurging on fat and calories. If fresh berries aren’t available, frozen ones work too, but try to take advantage of summer’s abundant sweet, juicy berries. To get the most antioxidant benefits, choose organic!
Greek yogurt has a lot more protein and substantially less sugar than the American alternative, plus it is a good source of calcium and lactobacteria, which is good for your digestive system.
This will taste like a dessert but work like a superfood!
