    Looks awesome! Before going dairy-free, I loved Greek yogurt along with fruit (my favorite was cherries) and maybe honey. Even more than Greek yogurt was vanilla bean Siggi – OMG it’s so custard-thick and delicious. I’m now wondering if I can figure out a way to make homemade coconut yogurt – the So Delicious stuff has sugar in it. I am intrigued by these carob and cranberry bars though. Even though they failed. The idea sounds delicious!

    @Alta, Yes, you can make coconut milk yogurt – I looked into it when I thought I needed to be dairy-free. If you Google it, you’ll find some different products.

    The carob & cranberry bars have a fabulous flavor. I haven’t given up yet…

    Yes, I need more fake desserts! After gaining ten Lbs on the ‘real’ kind I am ready for restoration. A return to my healthy roots. Thanks for
    reminding me that I can get my sweet fix without having to pay for it.

    This is so cute, I love it!!! Fake desserts for me are basically any kind of fruit. OR (lots of people think this is weird) I melt 100 percent bitter chocolate and mix in a few drops of stevia. I love it! (But I’m a chocolate addict and only like it really really dark :)) I do try to stick to the fruit though, haha!

    @Aubree Cherie, Sometimes I put unsweetened cocoa powder instead of cinnamon on my cottage cheese & fruit salad and add powdered stevia. It works for me.

    Lovely, Amy. I admit I haven’t totally learned to let sweet indulgences using fruit work for me. I’m more apt to eat an apple and go with that. Well, I have learned how to make wonderful, satisfying ice cream/sherbert using fruit, but I need to branch out a bit.

    Your “fake dessert” is such a good idea…and good description of how to approach sweets. This sounds so good, I want to try it right away!

    I was wondering creme fraiche high in calories?

    I don’t think we could get it here in KS anyway but I’m new to the gluten free, sugar free and wasn’t sure about things like this.

    I’m just asking because I am trying to get the extra 50 pounds off and didn’t want to “enjoy” it too much. Thanks for any input!

    Oops, sorry for the dumb question. I guess I was thinking creme fraiche was closer to yogurt than cream.


    Amy Reply:

    @Tawra@Living On A Dime, It’s not a dumb question – a dollop of creme fraiche has never hurt me. But if you didn’t want something that rich you could use greek yogurt – it’s thick and creamy without the fat.

    I SO need this recipe. I’ve always been thin; or, rather, I was always thin until I became a food blogger last year and my weight started to creep up. Time to nip things in the bud and switch to smoothies and your delicious looking trifle for dessert (or maybe dinner?). Stumbled.

    I like to crumble a graham cracker over banana cream pie yogurt or key lime. Taste just like a pie!

    Sometimes the most simple of desserts are the most enjoyable! My mom used to make these types of personal trifles a lot growing up! :-) Yummy!! We made them with applesauce & cinnamon, graham crakers, and of course coolwhip… lol!

    This looks so good! I love yogurt with blueberries and maple syrup.
