Our resident clean-eating community member, Ann B., came up with this dessert on a cold Canadian day! This recipe does use pure maple syrup, which is a clean and “real food” when it comes to adding sweetness to your creations.
If you’re following the 17 Day Diet to the “T”, then you may want to sub the syrup for an approved sweetener, like a Stevia-based product.
If you’re the type of person like me (and Ann) who enjoys eating real foods rather than artificial sweeteners or highly processed “natural” sweeteners such as several Stevia-based products, then use this recipe as-is in all cycles in moderation. Enjoy!
Ann’s Creamy Fruit Freeze
1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Sour Cream
1 teaspoon Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Berries (Ann used raspberries)
1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
In a large bowl, mash berries and stir in the remaining ingredients. Freeze for one hour. Remove from freezer and allow to thaw just enough to stir again. Return to freezer for another hour. Remove, stir and serve.
Yields 4 Servings
Approved for all cycles (using an approved sweetener substitute for maple syrup)
