I whipped up this super easy Caramel Apple Yogurt for a snack today.
Ever since my recent trip to the Middle East, I’ve been struggling a bit to stay on plan. I chose not to stay on plan 100% on my trip, and that’s really been working against me.
But, I may never get a chance to go back and I wanted to enjoy some Authentic Middle Eastern dishes. My choice to make, but now I’m struggling with the consequences.
This Carmel Apple Yogurt is an easy E recipe, if you’re following Trim Healthy Mama.
Es are the most difficult for me since I prefer those super satisfying S meals. But to follow this plan as intended, you have to mix up those fuels – even if they’re not your favorite.
You also need to start with a decent amount of protein (the Sisters recommend 20g), so the base of this Caramel Apple Yogurt recipe is nonfat Greek yogurt which has more protein than regular nonfat yogurt. Just a few more ingredients and you have a quick and easy snack that will help satisfy that sweet tooth.
Caramel apples are always traditionally eaten in the Fall, which is my favorite time of year. Maybe that’s why it sounded good today on this hot, humid July day! I’m longing for autumn…
Caramel Apple Yogurt – THM E
- 1 c plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp caramel extract
- stevia, to taste
- 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce* (Important not to use sweetened applesauce!)
- optional, sugar free caramel sauce
Mix together the yogurt, extracts and stevia. Top with applesauce and enjoy. Optional, drizzle a sugar free caramel sauce over the top, such as this easy to make recipe (without artificial sweeteners like sucralose) from Simply Healthy Home.
*Note: I need to stick to the lower end of the E carb range so I just used one serving of applesauce. If you can handle more carbs and want more, you can increase the yogurt and/or the applesauce a bit. Just keep the total amount of net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) to no more than 45 grams.
