Ingredients

2 cups fat-free plain Greek yogurt and 1 cup fat-free plain Geek yogurt, divided use
1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed if frozen
12 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup no-sugar-added canned sliced peaches, packed in their own juice, drained, or frozen unsweetened peaches, thawed if frozen, and diced

 

Directions

  1. In a food processor or blender, process 1 12 cups yogurt and the raspberries for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth, stopping to scrape the sides as needed.
     
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 cup yogurt, cinnamon, and vanilla until well blended.
     
  3. In four small cups, layer as follows: 2 tablespoons peaches, 14 cup raspberry yogurt mixture, 14 cup plain yogurt mixture, 1/4 cup raspberry yogurt mixture, and 2 tablespoons peaches.
     

Level 4: Pureed
Omit the layering step. In a food processor or blender, process all the ingredients until smooth. There should be no separation of liquid.

Level 5: Minced and Moist
If needed, using a knife, cut the fruit into pieces no more than 4 milliliters in size. The pieces should fit between the tines of a fork. Layering is optional.

Level 6: Soft and Bite-Size
Using a knife, cut the fruit into pieces no bigger than 1.5 x 1.5 centimeters (the size of your thumbnail).

 

Cook’s Tip

Experiment with different flavor combinations. Swap out the raspberries for no-sugar-added canned pears or frozen mixed berries. Substitute frozen cherries or mango for the peaches. Be sure to avoid substituting pineapple, grapes, and dried fruits.
