Exercise your mind and body


You can almost see my digital food scale poking out next to the almonds.  I weighed 175 grams of yogurt.

This is so good it should be illegal, it’s got a cheesecake like creaminess to it.  YUMMY!!!

I’ve recently discovered Greek yogurt and I’ve been having it every morning.  I switch the toppings so not to get bored. 
For this super easy recipe I added unsweetened almond butter and they taste good together.  I also sprinkled some cinnamon, chia seeds, splenda and sliced almonds, the nuts add a nice crunch.  This is a delicious and filling for breakfast or snack.

1/2 teaspoon splenda

Directions:
In a small bowl, mix yogurt, splenda, cinnamon and almond butter together until blended.

Note: You can also use all natural unsweetened peanut butter instead of the almond butter.
Another option is to omit the cinnamon and almond butter and add chopped blueberries or strawberries and a touch of splenda.  I use the splenda to take away some of the tartness of the yogurt.

What do you mix into your Greek yogurt?
