Everyone likes to take a break now and then. It could be mid-morning, after the first errands of the day are done. It could be late evening, after dinner has been cleared away and the house is relatively quiet.
At those times, I often feel like having something sweet. Something that’s just indulgent enough to feel like I’ve had a real treat without having had too much.
In the spirit of experimentation that animates my blog, I decided to make a yogurt sundae instead of an ice cream sundae. I picked a really good vanilla yogurt, lined a gold-rimmed coupe with fresh strawberries, spooned in the yogurt, then topped it with chocolate sauce and a cherry on top.
This is a great way to feel like you’re getting away with something, when in fact you’re having something pretty healthy. Choose a Greek yogurt for extra protein, if you like, and throw on a few toasted nuts for good measure.
I think it’s important to make a treat like this a bit of an occasion, even if you’re only having it by yourself. Maybe it’s even more important if you’re by yourself! Treat yourself right with a lovely cup or bowl and an elegant spoon if you have one on hand. Make it special. You deserve it!
