Helpful hints

  • Check with your dietitian to be sure this recipe is acceptable for your individual diet. Greek yogurt is a significant source of protein, potassium, phosphorus and calcium. This recipe provides an easy way to increase protein intake but portion must be limited to keep other nutrients of concern within an acceptable amount.
  • For variety substitute blueberries or strawberries for raspberries.
