Filed Under: Recipes, Sides and Sauces

High in protein, healthful fats, vitamins and minerals—and your favorite fruit

Serves 4

  • 1 cup strawberries, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 cup pears, chopped
  • ¼ cup raw almonds, chopped
  • ¼ cup raw sunflower seeds, shelled
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, roasted
  • 1 ½ cups plain, nonfat yogurt
  • 6 drops stevia or 1 tablespoon xylitol

Mix fruit, nuts, and seeds in a medium bowl. Fold in yogurt and stir well.  (Strawberries and pears are only suggestions. Use 2 cups of any single or mixed fruit of your choice.)

Add stevia, 1 drop at a time, or xylitol, 1 teaspoon at a time, stir, and taste. Add more, by the drop or teaspoonful, as desired. You don't need much added sweetener, since the fruit provides so much sweetness.
