Cherry Garcia Yogurt- 149 calories

I was craving a big bowl of ice cream, but I was not interested in all the calories that come with it. Luckily I always have a giant tub of Greek Yogurt, and with inspiration from my friend’s favorite dessert (I’m talking about you Krista) I summoned my inner Jerry Garcia and made a knock off of my all time favorite ice cream. It’s delicious and sweet and filling, I ate it up for dinner. This would make a great breakfast or late night snack.

Makes 4 servings-

2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 ½  tbsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips
2 tbsp Dried Cherries (if you have fresh they are great too, quarter them)

Combine everything, hold a few cherries and chocolate chips back to top with. Mix well and serve in cute bowls or martini glasses, top with remaining cherries and chocolate.

It helps if while making this you play some Grateful Dead, Pandora can help you out with that if you don’t already have a favorite album. ;)

Each serving has:
Calories: 149
Fat: 2
Fiber: 0.5
Protein: 12
Carbs: 21

This is full of protein, calcium and potassium.

  1. You can probably just get a little single serving size, at least if you hate it you did not invest in a big tub. If you need it a little sweeter add a little more honey. Greek Yogurt is so good for you, I hope you enjoy it, good luck!
    Happy Cooking!
