It's possible to have your cake and eat it, too! The key is in proper portions topped with healthier ingredients. This Angel Food Cupcake Explosion recipe is easy to prepare and features natural toppings that are practically impossible to overdo. Mix the Greek yogurt topping according to your preference to make it sweeter or more tangy.
- Premade Angel Food Cupcakes or Cups
- 1 single-serve cup of plain Greek yogurt (we used Olympus Greek Yogurt)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons Stevia or agave nectar
- 1/2 cup frozen berries (we used blackberries)
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- Defrost berries in microwave just long enough for some of the juices to run free. Remove from microwave and set aside.
- Mix together Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, stevia and lemon juice, adjusting amounts to your preferred taste and consistency.
- Pour the juice from the berries into the yogurt mixture to give it additional flavor and color. Mix until thoroughly blended.
- Microwave chocolate chips and milk in a safe bowl for about a minute. Remove and stir until smooth.
- Spoon yogurt mixture over the Angel Food Cupcakes, using as much or as little as you like.
- Top yogurt with several berries and drizzle the berries with the chocolate.
- Eat immediately or cool in the fridge to allow the yogurt and chocolate to set.
- Save the remaining yogurt and chocolate for future use or dip the remaining berries into the mixtures and freeze to enjoy as a separate dessert treat.
