My new favorite dessert - yup it is on program

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Yesterday when I came back from Horseshoe Casino with my sister I was lurking in my freezer for something chocolate but not too sweet. I was wanting something I normally do not eat, EVER! A brownie sundae. You know the ones you get at the restaurant or Dairy Queen. The ones that send my blood sugars spiraling out of control and leaving me craving more sweets. Well I came upon a solution for that...I took out a cup of Healthy Choice frozen Greek yogurt (vanilla bean), let it thaw just a bit to soften it up and warmed a Vitalicious VitaBrownie in a glass custard cup then spooned the frozen yogurt on top. Yum,Yum, Yum. It was not overly sweet, so it did not trigger my sweet cravings, yet sweet enough to satisfy. I felt like I had cheated!

All total it was only 200 mouthwatering calories, 10 g. fat ( a little high, but not nearly as high as the original) 40 carbs, 5 g. protein, and 11 whopping g. of Fiber. I bet the original has nearly no fiber. The brownie alone is also loaded with other fabulous vitamins like 50 % of Vitamins A,C,D,E, iron, Zinc and 20% calcium.

Now I have a weapon when I go somewhere for a birthday party and what not.

Well that is it for now, I have a major sinus headache and having trouble forming thoughts... so ta,ta for now

    I have ordered them online, too. Wonderful! And a life saver when I want chocolate!

    I too loved the HC frozen greek yogurt and ate one a day for a long time. Then I took a closer look at the ingredients. Propylene glycol! They put that in antifreeze and dog treats to keep them forever soft! Google it!

    Those vitamuffins and vitabrownies are life savors aren't they. For those of you who can't find them I am out in the middle of nowhere and I order them online and have them shipped. The price is outrageous but I ordered 3 or 4 months worth at a time and stick them in the deep freeze.

    I bought mine at Giant Eagle. They are in the frozen section of the organic aisle at the one in Barberton. They are not cheap (5.99 for a box of 4) so about 1.50 each 2 oz. brownie. They carry "muffing top and muffin" items as well, but the brownies are the only sugar-free item.

    Dear FunniRosi,

    Thanks for an amazing dessert idea!! I've been getting "stuck" with jello, lite cool whip, and activia (light, of course). This is a fine dessert but when I want chocolate, all I have had is chocolate cheerios!!

    This sounds nice for when the cravings are overwhelming. I certainly appreciate it! Good luck on your weight loss journey. All the best!
