Shaklee Cinch Recipes: Chocolate Berry Parfait

posted in The Daily Diet by Trisha

I have to admit I really enjoy a decadent treat now and then! However, I’ve taken to creating my own treats so that they are healthier without sacrificing a sinful taste.

One of my favorite after dinner desserts (but only if I’ve been “good” that day with my diet) is a yogurt-based parfait made with fresh berries and Shaklee’s Chocolate Flavor Cinch Shake mix. The Cinch Shake mix adds both extra protein and extra fiber, which makes the dish both filling and satisfying.

Cinch Chocolate Berry Parfait: (serves 2)

1 single serve packet of Shaklee Cinch Shake mix, chocolate flavor
8 oz. Plain non-fat yogurt **
8 oz. fresh blueberries and raspberries, rinsed and mixed
1 small banana, sliced

  1. First mix together the yogurt and Shaklee Cinch shake mix thoroughly, then let sit in the freezer for a short while to “firm up” – how firm you like your parfait is a personal preference, but I let mine sit for 20 minutes or so.
  2. Next, rinse and mix the blueberries and raspberries – you can slightly crush them if you like a juicy mixture, but since raspberries are naturally pretty sweet I don’t add any sugar or sweetener.
  3. Serve the sliced banana and berries over top of the chocolate-yogurt mixture and enjoy!

** I prefer the plain, non-fat yogurt to keep this dessert as healthy as possible, but you can use any brand of vanilla low fat/low sugar yogurt as well.
