Notes
Top this with a scoop of your favorite low sugar frozen yogurt. Or, make your own! We like to add Fage Greek Yogurt (fat free) to our ice cream freezer, with a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a swig of maple syrup or sweetener (use your favorite) to taste, and make healthy, high protein frozen yogurt.
