Looking for a luscious, healthy dessert that can be whipped up in under 10 minutes? Try combining a fruit-flavored curd with strained, Greek yogurt, spooning the yogurt over a ready-baked cake slice then topping with fresh berries.
“What’s that”, you say. “Healthy cake?” I discovered a frozen line of Amy’s organic cakes (next to their pizza’s), that’s not as processed and sugary as many other ready-made cakes I’ve tried in the past. It makes no claims on being low-fat or sugar-free, but eating this cake in moderation falls within my guidelines of a more healthy diet.
One serving is 200 calories and one serving was plenty for me–especially when combined with yogurt, curd and berries.
I was delighted to find the season’s first local strawberries at the Farmer’s Market which inspired this favorite, practically instant, dessert. I could have cut sugar and fat more if I’d substituted a sugar-free jam for the curd and used fat-free, instead of, 2% yogurt.
I’m providing a recipe but it’s so simple, you really don’t need one. Your favorite pound cake or angel food cake could substitute for the Amy’s, a jam or honey could be substituted for curd, and any perfectly ripened berry could stand in for the strawberries.
