Blueberries with Lemon Cream

Spring 2003, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (72 votes)

Blending vanilla yogurt and reduced-fat cream cheese creates a topping that's as virtuous as it is delicious. Any fresh berry can be used in this recipe.

Oops, also meant to say...

Oops, in previous review, also meant to say that I used full fat yogurt and cream cheese. Additionally, I let the cream cheese come to room temperature and didn't need a mixer. A hand whisk worked fine.

I Don't Like Yogurt, But I Liked This

Needed something super fast to make for a potluck and luckily, I found this recipe. I don't even like yogurt, but this was good.

I did adjust the recipe a it because I don't care about fat but I do care about sugar and flavored yogurt is full of sugar and then you add more! Instead of vanilla yogurt, I used plain unsweetened yogurt and added a teaspoon of vanilla. I then added a bit of extra honey (but still less than would have been in the flavored yogurt alone) and added all the zest from one medium lemon. Worked great and tasted even better after sitting a while. (I think adding a bit of fresh mint would also be very good)

I used the sauce on a mixture of blueberries and pineapple, but I think it would work on any fruit.

Fast, easy and delicious.

This is not low carb

Regular yogurt will contain carbs, and low fat will contain more. This might be fine if your goal is low fat, but if you are restricting carbs, this is a poor choice.

17.2 Carbs in 1 cup of yogurt, plus honey. A Tablespoon of honey has some 17 carbs. 17.5 carbs in a cup of blueberries.

Do the math, and this recipe includes 12.9+5.6+35.6=54.1 net carbs. I removed the fiber already. Four servings, so will have 13.525 grams of carbs.

This is not low carb, sorry.

Fairly natural ingrediants

Never says anywhere it is

Never says anywhere it is "low carb". It's fruit, no kidding. I'm a diabetic looking to reduce calories, and protein intake due to kidney problems. I avoid Greek yogurts, as many have recommended and further reduced fat, calories and carbs by using non-fat yogurt and omitting honey and using sweet-n-low or splenda to sweeten it. I mixed the berries together and served chilled...very good.

Still me: If you want this,

Still me:

If you want this, and want it to be lower in carbs, use plain greek yogurt, add only a small amount of honey, plus lemon zest. Use strawberries, at 11.4 carbs per cup, and it becomes somewhat reasonable, but still a treat.

New totals: 1 cup greek yogurt (Greek Gods plain) 10 carbs.
2 Cups strawberries: 22.4 carbs
1 tsp honey: 5.6 carbs
Total: 38.06, per serving 9.516

It will not be as sweet, but those strawberries have plenty of sugar, already. This is low carb, and likely tasty.

Easy and delicious!

Delicious!! I've made it several times - adpated the recipe by using plain non-fat Greek yogurt and adding 1/2tsp vanilla and 1-2 packets of Splenda. It comes out thick and creamy - and with the added bonus of less sugar and more protein. Yummm!

Mmmm delicious. I made this for dessert tonight and it came out fantastic. I added a few squirts of lemon juice to give it some extra lemon flavor. It came out perfect. My boyfriend saw it and wanted to try it and loved it and he doesn't really like blueberries. This is so easy to make and came out great! Very filling and tasty too!
