Greek Yogurt With Warm Blueberry and Blackberry Sauce

Have a sweet tooth but really don’t want to crash your diet?  Okay so maybe my blog wasn’t helping this last week with the whole brownie post …..  I have the perfect cheat dessert for those of you dieting and want something that isn’t going to make you gain so much weight the next day.  I found through Cooking Light Magazine a really quick, easy and tasty dessert that is low in calories and you can still get your Protein, Calcium and Fiber while having this sweet tooth!  All you have to do is buy plain Greek Yogurt, frozen bag of Blueberries and Blackberries and make the sauce to add to your plain Greek yogurt.  You can even control how much of this sauce you want to add to even lessen your calorie intake or possibly put too much sauce which if you’re serious about your diet you won’t do! 🙂

……I can make food look pretty……. 🙂  I’m very proud of this set up…unfortunate my photography is lacking talent here.

Sauce in the making…..so yummy!
