IntroductionThis may sound a bit odd, but my, oh, my it is SO good for a healthy low-carb, protein-filled snack or dessert that has healthy fat from walnuts! This may sound a bit odd, but my, oh, my it is SO good for a healthy low-carb, protein-filled snack or dessert that has healthy fat from walnuts!
1- 7oz container Plain Fage 2% Greek Yogurt -slightly less than a cup
(You can also use 0% nonfat Greek Yogurt brand of your choice, but the this is calculated with 2% Fage.)
1/2 cup of prepared Sugar Free Jello
(Your flavor of choice. I used Black Cherry, but will be experimenting with other flavors as well.)
1oz chopped walnuts (Maybe try almonds or pecans, too?)
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 packets Splenda or Stevia/Truvia
(more or less packets according to personal taste-- SF Jello may enough sweetness for you and you may want to omit extra sweetener altogether.)
The calories in the walnuts causes this to be slightly high in calories & fat, but walnuts are a good source of healthy fat. You can enjoy it as one serving, but if you are concerned with the calories, you can split it into 2 servings. Note: I have calculated this recipe as 1 serving so just split nutrition #s in half if you make it as 2 servings.
I prefer to mix it all together, but it would make a healthy parfait too, if you alternate Jello with Greek Yogurt and walnut mixture. Its entirely up to you!
