I just wanted to share a recipe I kind of made up, and it tasted soooo good and didn't spike my blood sugar levels, and satisfied my sweet tooth and hunger at the same time. Here is what I created. Nothing special…just a tip.

I use a large bowl to mix…Take non-fat greek yogurt (1 large container) plain. I add a small bag of berries (blue berries, black berries, raspberries, or strawberries, or a mix of all of them), sweeten with Truvia (about 8 little packets or to taste), add three tablespoons of organic cinnamon, organic vanilla extract (no sugar added) to taste, and finely ground organic flaxseed, usually about 5 tablespoons or so, and one half lemon to squeeze juice into the yogurt (remove seeds first). Put all ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and put back in container if you like. Then stick the container back in the fridge overnight so the taste of the berries incorporates itself into the yogurt and thaw if you used frozen. It makes a nice large portion, and i eat a few tablespoons of it here and there when I get a craving. Not only does it make a great desert, the yogurt is great for your tummy, and the whole thing is fat and virtually sugar free. I have tested myself after eating this several times, and had minimal normal spike. Enjoy!! Im trying to freeze it as well to see what the consistency looks like. :)

Like james, i don't suffer from it either (except as an innocent bystander) and I thought it looked good. From the start i thought "hmmm, wonder how it would be frozen" till i got to your last line. Now I wonder what would happen if you ran it through an ice cream maker.

Sorry Nick, guess I shouldn't have put the PMS thing on there, but I kind of wanted to help us ladies get over that chocolate craving during our ruff time…lol. Of course this is a wonderful desert for everyone, and the fat free yogurt is great for the stomache lining.

I don't have the PMS (obviously) but your desert sounds delicious! I'll have to try it!

Perhaps you could include it in the Recipe section (link at the left side of screen) so this does not get "lost" in all the discussions which are posted, and it is searchable so folks can find a particullar recipe without a lot of looking.

Thanks for sharing!
