Apple Yogurt Dessert is simply delicious with a wonderful crunch!
I am all for simple things for the last few posts. Work is
hectic, Andy is back in school and Glenn, who is a teacher and was off for the summer, is back at work,
too. With things so busy, simple is good! :-)
We first had this at a friend's house. Helen, a
very energetic eighty-something-year-old, had us over for dinner one delightful evening. She served a
beautiful baked chicken, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad, the whole delicious works. A little later she announced that she was serving dessert. We all looked at each other
wondering how we could possibly eat dessert. She brought out pretty little cups filled with this
amazingly simple, yet totally satisfying Apple Yogurt Dessert. Needless to say, we were able to enjoy it without
bursting at the seams.
We make this quite often. You can use low-fat or
fat-free yogurt and it still tastes great. You can substitute other types of fruit for the apple. Pears anyone? I
like to use firm fruits in this dessert because part of what makes it different from regular yogurt with
fruit is the crunchy texture of the apple. Sprinkle some chopped roasted almonds on top for more texture if
Apple Yogurt Dessert is a treat that
tastes like an indulgence, but can be guilt-free depending on how you make it.
