Snack Attack Solution


With March behind us and Spring marching right along, we’re now in the build-up for Summer. We can look forward to baseball, BBQ’s and bathing suits…eek!!

My Springtime dilemma is that it can still be cool enough to crave comfort food but I have to get rid of the “comfort” around my midsection before it’s time to hit the beach. Since my weakness is sweet treats, I try to find alternatives that make me think I’m cheating when I’m really being good.

I found this recipe for a creamy Pumpkin Pie Yogurt in Shape magazine and I’m so excited to give it a try. It sounds filling, delicious, and healthy. Sweet!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

¼ cup Canned Pumpkin
½ cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 tsp Maple Syrup
½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
