Our resident clean-eating community member, Ann B., came up with this low-sugar dessert on a cold Canadian day!
You’ll want to gather your wholesome ingredients together – your dairy includes yogurt and sour cream. You’ll use real fruit, applesauce and your sweetener of choice (more on that in just a moment).
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.
You’ll want to grab a bowl and mash your berries first, then add in the other ingredients. You’ll freeze and stir a few times until you get the frozen consistency you’re looking for.
When you have a finished product ready to eat, you’re going to thank yourself for choosing a healthier alternative to the crazy sugary desserts you find in the stores.
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!
