A low calorie Sundae

Lately I've been posting a lot of low carb recipes and I feel like I should clarify - I don't believe in eating a low carb diet permanently. There's research on both sides but in my experience (21 years of dieting), a low calorie diet is much easier to maintain in the long term. It's also easier to find food that's low calorie versus low carb.

On that note, here's a low calorie alternative for your sundae cravings.

1 cup plain yogurt (you can use flavored if you prefer)
Fruit (I used two bananas)
Whipped Cream in a can

This treat is very versatile. You can mix up yogurt flavors, fruit and even add some crunchy cereal if you like. It's a good healthy alternative to picking up a pint of Ben and Jerry's.
