Notes on the ingredients

Frozen Greek yogurt: Key is to get a quality GREEK frozen yogurt b/c of its low calorie and high protein content.  Beware of ones that say ‘Greek’ but have the same poor/mediocre nutritional content as regular frozen yogurt.  Trader Joe’s carries a good one but it does taste like yogurt.  Adonia makes one that is almost as healthy and tastes like ice cream but costs a little more.  Many regular supermarkets and most specialty food stores now carry it.

Calorie-free topping: Not only does this exist but it actually tastes good.  The brand I use is Walden Farms (they also make a calorie free strawberry syrup that I will feature on a killer strawberry crunch sundae).  Check specialty food stores and even some regular supermarkets- refrigerated section.  Note- it’s sweetened with sucralose (Splenda).

Enjoy and stay healthy!
