About This Recipe

I made over this fantastic Thanksgiving treat. Now it is super-quick and delicious. For this high-protein, healthy alternative I use the fantastic honey vanilla bean flavored Greek yogurt from Voskos (available in most grocery stores). It actually stands alone as a balanced, healthy half-meal on its own! So prepare this in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Then a few hours after the turkey dinner you can whip this one out and never interrupt your healthy eating plan. Your guests will love it.
