okay, i know how some of you like snack ideas, and this is good enough to be considered dessert.
apple (can also add other fruit, like strawberries)
sugar-free, calorie free syrup (preferably vanilla, hazelnut, or caramel)
small container (about 4 oz.) vanilla yogurt
light whipped topping (e.g. cool whip)
core the apple, and chop either half or the whole thing, depending on how much fruit you want. heat nonstick pan; add a couple tablespoons of syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon. add the apples, and stir around with a spatula to coat the pieces.
meanwhile, mix the yogurt with desired amount of cool whip (2-3 tablespoons) and a splash of vanilla extract. once apple pieces are slightly cooked – tender but not soggy, only a few minutes – dump the fruit on top of the yogurt. voila – yummy!
i got the idea because i really like the new dole apple fruit parfaits, and decided to try and make my own version.
