Perfect Guilt-Free Dessert

by:  Tara Fuller
The 17-day diet has become the rage with many of my friends trying to adapt a healthier lifestyle.  And although everyone seems to be pleased with their increased energy, clearer skin and weight loss, sugar cravings continues to be a battle.

Here is a healthy, no guilt treat that is chalk full of probiotics, fiber and protein, all of which are all allowed during cycle one of the plan. It is so delicious I've been making it for years with the exception of Truvia in place of sugar.

1c Greek Yogurt
1 Apple
1 Packet of Truvia

Place yogurt in a bowl and sprinkle with Truvia.  In a separate bowl, wash and chop 1 small apple into bite size pieces and sprinkle with cinnamon, which is one ingredient that has been linked to boost metabolism. Microwave a minute or so until soft.  Pour onto cold yogurt, stir and ENJOY. If you sprinkle a little granola (just a little, it's very high in calories) on top, it tastes just like apple pie without the guilt.

Please let me know what you think?
