If you are in the mood for a light, but filling dessert, this is it. Creamy Yogurt is so rich and creamy, I can eat it without any sweetener, but when I have this dessert, I like to put a bit of stevia into it. Don’t add too much stevia or it will taste bitter (and herb-like). My daughter and I like to pile on all of the optional goodies, but Bryan likes it with just the berries and creamy yogurt.
I admit that when I first made this, I wanted to add a bit of honey, but it really didn’t take long on this diet to appreciate flavors without having to pile sweeteners on. Besides, the first time I made this was with plain old store-bought yogurt. Creamy Yogurt is so much better. When I want a late-night dessert, this is my choice. It doesn’t feel heavy in my stomach when I go to bed.
