It is that time of year when people are tired of pigging out and are looking to lose some weight. We are among those people. Just because you are dieting doesn’t mean that you can’t have a dessert. This recipe is one of our favorites and can be made with low fat ingredients or full fat ingredients. Both recipes are very delicious. It is great with any berries or any combination of berries. We also like to add bananas to this recipe. It is so easy and people love it. Your family will never know that this is a low fat dessert.
