The addition of ginger, cinnamon, and cardamon to fresh plums make this crumble the perfect dessert to serve on a lazy spring weekend when the lingering chill of winter hasn't quite been shaken from the budding trees. The warm spices and slightly tart plums create a spectacular spring treat your whole family will enjoy. While it's not really a "light" dessert, it is largely due to the almonds in the crumble topping. While they are high in fat and calories, almonds are a great source of heart healthy, monounsaturated fats, and add a nice boost of protein. So go ahead, and indulge a little.
A great and filling meal for a warm night.
I love key lime pie, and I love cheese cake. Sadly, since both of them are pretty much healthy eating "no-nos", I decided to create a lightened up version. I used Greek yogurt for the bulk of the filling. It lends that creamy tartness to the pie with out all of the fat and calories. The yogurt also adds a healthy dose of protein, which makes this feel like a really satisfying dessert.
This is a great sauce that my boyfriend and I developed through some trail and error. The fat-free yogurt adds protein and a nice tangy-ness while the Marscapone cheese adds a wonderful richness. If you're really worried about the calories and/or fat, you could use only Greek yogurt, but I think you'll loose the amazing texture one typically expects in a tzatiki. We use it for a sandwich spread or dip for crudites, pita breads, or even corn chips.
