A couple days ago I did my weekly visit to Whole Foods and found a beautiful bag of Meyer Lemons on sale. I have been seeing so many yummy recipes using these lemons that I thought I needed to give it a whirl.
Now- I love dessert! I love about anything with chocolate! But I also know that to live a healthy life things have to be in moderation. So when I decided to make a special dessert for the family using these wonderfully delicate lemons, I wanted it to be on the healthy side and easy side seeing that the girls wanted to get outside to play in the nice spring weather.
Easy Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Parfait
Makes 4 small servings
1 large container of plain Greek Yogurt (I love Stonyfield Farms Oikos )
1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed (about 1 1/2 Meyer Lemons)
3 tbsp Agave Nectar
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp almond extract
1 tbsp powder sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries
Mix yogurt, nectar and cinnamon in large bowl. Spoon out equal amounts of mixture into small dishes. Place equal amounts of blueberries on top. In large bowl combine whipping cream, almond extract and powder sugar. Beat whipping cream with electric mixer until very creamy thick. Place on top of blueberries and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
What a great healthy way to end a delightful meal. Stay tuned and I'll share our special spring celebration meal with you soon!
