Dessert Verdict: Not Guilty!

Deep into my health kick, I’ve found the most wonderfully simple dessert recipe… and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Finally, a dessert with the caloric verdict:  Not Guilty!

This seriously takes five minutes to make and seems and tastes super impressive.

Berry Frozen Yogurt

  • 4 c. frozen berries (I have tried all strawberries, but mixed berries offer a richer taste)
  • 5 oz. Greek non-fat plain yogurt (Have also tried with vanilla. No major difference, so keep to the plain to keep sugars down)
  • 1 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 T. honey

Pulse everything in your food processor for approximately 5 minutes, or until berries have been decimated. Then, stir in a few mini chocolate chips for good measure. Eat immediately or freeze for later. Oh la la!

If you really want to impress your sweetie’s sweet tooth, serve, with a lacey cookie (recipe below). Again, so easy! The batter is ready before the oven even heats up.

Lacey Cookies

(Makes 12 cookies. Just enough for one baking sheet.)

  • 2 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 2 TBSP light brown sugar
  • 1½ TBSP honey
  • 2 TBSP AP flour
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment or Silpat
  3. Melt butter, brown sugar and honey in a small saucepan
  4. Whisk in flour and salt
  5. Drop ½ tsp of batter onto baking sheets leaving about 3″ between as they spread a lot!
  6. Bake until golden brown, approximately 6 minutes
  7. Transfer Silpat or parchment to a wire rack to cool
