When I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease I found that yogurt was giving me a stomach ache. A temporary lactose intolerance is common in people with undiagnosed Celiac Disease, and many find that they are able to tolerate dairy again after a few months on the gluten free diet. I took a break from dairy when I first went gluten free, and several weeks later I was happy to find that I could eat it again without pain. Even so, I generally avoided yogurt. That is, until I discover ProYo. I am in love and want to eat it every day until forever.
ProYo High Protein Frozen Yogurt is a great tasting snack that comes in four flavors: Vanilla Bean, Banana Vanilla, Blueberry Pomegranate (my favorite!), and Dutch Chocolate. I absolutely love ProYo. Creamy and satisfying, each variation is packed with both flavor and protein.

While any flavor would make an excellent base for smoothies, I was inspired by the versatility of the Vanilla Bean ProYo. My winter-time cravings for warmth, spices, and seasonal fruit lead me to create the follow recipe. And can I just say – WOW. I cannot stop eating it (well, I did run out of ProYo, so once I buy more I will make this recipe again and again). It is extremely healthy and perfect for a single-serving breakfast, lunch, or dessert. Double the ingredients and curl up by the fire with someone special on a cold night.
