This is a featured recipe taken from The Biggest Loser 6 Weeks to a Healthier You by Cheryl Forberg, RD.
When Season 9 Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella was not in the gym, you could usually find him in the Ranch kitchen, inventing a new and delicious concoction. This is a special dessert he created one night for his mother and teammate, Maria.
1 cup plain, fat-free Greek-style yogurt
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/3 cup diced frozen strawberries
1-2 packets Truvia or other natural sweetener
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
In a food processor, combine the yogurt, blueberries, strawberries, sweetener, and vanilla and process until smooth. Stir in the nuts. Transfer the mixture to a pint container, cover, and freeze for about 30 minutes, or until just frozen. Scoop into 4 parfait glasses and serve immediately.
Note: This dessert can be served later, but it will form ice crystals if frozen longer than directed and thus won't be as creamy.
Note: If you opt to leave out the nuts, the calories are halved, or 45 per serving.
