Let's create something so simple and delicious for breakfast, a snack or a dessert. It's ALMOND YOGURT AND BERRY MOUSSE. I thought today you needed something that is quick and easy that speaks to those who are lactose intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, KETO and PALEO. It is also perfect for a Kosher meal where meat products are served. It is protein rich and the yogurt is made from low carbohydrate Almonds. The berries are the lowest in natural sugar. If you have been following my blog, you know how much I love Monkfruit Sweetener. It replaces regular sugar and is measured on a one to one basis with sugar for sweetness in a recipe. It is Sugar Free, Zero Calories, Zero Glycemic and is Gluten Free. Also, the addition in this recipe of Cinnamon is an important ingredient. It lowers blood pressure and is not used nearly enough in the United States as is in other countries such as Caribbean cooking and Indian cuisine. Enjoy!!! It only takes minutes to make.
ALMOND YOGURT & BERRY MOUSSE
1 - 5.3 oz. container of Unsweetened Almond Yogurt (Cashew or Coconut Unsweetened is also fine) 1 teaspoon Monkfruit Sweetener (or to taste) 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon Blueberries Blackberries Strawberries Chopped Almonds, Cashews or Macadamia Nuts Fresh Mint leaves sliced thin (called chiffonade)
1) Spoon the yogurt into a bowl or you can use a parfait glass for a layered effect by only spooning 2-3 Tablespoons at first. 2) Add the Monkfruit and Cinnamon and stir until combined. If you are layering in a parfait glass, start with placing the yogurt in a bowl and mix the Monkfruit and Cinnamon thoroughly before layering in the glass. 3) Add a mixture of your favorite berries, whether it be one type or a mixture of all. Stir until combined and top with nuts. Using the parfait glass, add the berries. Do not stir. Then a layer of Yogurt followed by a layer of berries. End with a layer of Yogurt topped with ground Nuts. 4) To add a refreshing element for your taste buds, sprinkle a few thinly sliced mint leaves on top. Light, delicious and so healthy. Enjoy!!!
