Today I normally just do my weekly recap, but I thought, why not post a quick, easy, fall recipe that you could make today? So for you I have my Apple Frozen Yogurt.
This frozen yogurt is super easy to make and did I mention really tasty? I used Plain Greek Yogurt, but vanilla would work great too, spiced apple cider, cinnamon, fresh apples, whip cream and the best part, a crushed up cinnamon and sugar pita chip! Yum!!
I made this recipe a couple of times this week to test it out and I found that a sweet apple work best. In the picture I used a granny smith apple, there my favorite, but it was a little tart. So I made it with an apple I got from Panera Bread and it was so much better. I’m sorry, I m not sure what kind of apple they gave me. Also you could use apple juice but I liked it better using apple cider, it added just a little bit more apple flavor to it. I really enjoyed my frozen treat and I love that I can have a heaping bowl of it for around 160 calories!!
For the topping I used Fat Free Whip Cream and 1 crushed cinnamon and sugar pita chip which really added the nice apple pie flavor. I think the crushed chip was my favorite part! I really love my quick frozen yogurts! Just before I start my dinner, I make my dessert and put it in the freezer. After I’m done eating dinner and the dreadful dishes are done, I pull out my dessert and simply enjoy!!

Now for this weeks weekly recap:
Monday: Yogurt Cereal Bars / Secret Recipe Club – These bars are amazing. They are made with corn flakes and the yogurt tastes like cheesecake. I am honored to be a part of this special Secret Recipe Club.
Tuesday – Pumpkin Soup / Skinny Bitch Tuesday – This was my last post as part of my Skinny Bitch Tuesday’s. This recipe is for a wonderful pumpkin soup that I simply enjoyed. It was savory, filling and very healthy!! Perfect for a cool chilly day!
Wednesday – Maple Glazed Chicken – This is a nice quick Fall meal that went perfect with my microwaved sweet potatoes. The chicken is sweet, yet savory. This was a family hit! Well, except my Husband had regular potatoes because he doesn’t like sweet!
Thursday – Almond-Poppy Seed Pound Cake with Lemon Neufchatel – Emerils Kicked-Up Sandwiches – I was shocked to find desserts in this cookbook and this pound cake was amazing!! It was made with cake flour, poppy seeds and had a wonderful lemon and powdered sugar glaze. I sandwiched it between cream cheese, powdered sugar and lemon juice mix. Yum!
Friday – Barbecued Chicken Salad with BBQ Ranch Dressing – I LOVE this salad! The BBQ Ranch Dressing really pulled it all together!! I will be using that dressing on lots of other foods! I could sooooo eat it with a spoon!!! My Husband enjoyed the salad too, he ate it all, but left some lettuce behind.
Saturday – Apple Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – These cookies are highly addicting! I can’t stop eating them!! These cookies remind me of the fall, with fresh apples, pumpkin and hints of cinnamon and chewy raisins. I’m so glad I remade them!
It’s getting late and I am hitting to many buttons and I think some of you may have gotten this post on Friday night! Opps! That’s what happens when you try to multi-task! I think it’s time for me to go to bed! 🙂
Have a great rest of the weekend!
