Dee's Sauted Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (P2)

I don't like the flavor of plan yogurt so I always doctor mine up to taste better. A really easy way to do this is to simply add some splenda & vanilla extract. Its sweet, easy and still very light in flavor (p1). Dee's fro-gurt is a great and yummy way to enjoy yogurt as well. It uses the splenda & vanilla method above, and also includes mixed berries and homemade granola (p2). Another way I like to doctor plan yougurt up, is to make Jellow Yogurt . It's very easy as it calls for a pkt of dry black cherry or regular cherry sugar free jello to be blended in (p1) (these are the only two flavors I think are close to the presweetened and preflavored varietys at the store).
The past few weeks I've had an idea for another way to doctor up some plan yogurt. My idea is not orrigional, but its nothing i've had since I've been on Sb and thought it sounded good, AND IT WAS!!!!

Dee's Sauteed Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (p2)
(makes approxmatly 5 to 6 servings)

For the apples:
5 to 6 apples, peeled and chopped
1 T I can't belileve its not butter
1 T Da Vinci sugar free Carmel Syrup
2 T Da Vinci sugar free Amaretto Syrup
2 to 3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 to 1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract
a tiny dash of salt
2 heaping T splenda
1 T lemon juice

For the Yogurt:
Yogurt (about a cup per person)
1 tsp splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
  • In a small bowl mix yogurt, splenda and vanilla extract and pour into a serving dish/bowl and set aside.
  • In a non-stick skillet: Add 1 T lemon juice and toss in the peeled and chopped apples. Place on a med high heat and start cooking them.
  • Add all the rest of the ingredents and stire often until the apples are cooked soft and hot. (**IF you have a lot of liquid in the skillet after the apples are done, than scoop out apple chunks and set aside. Continue to heat the liquid until its reduced and starts to thinken; then pour over apples. )
  • Spoon sauted apples over prepaired yogurt and garnish with a little more ground cinnamon if you wish.
** Keep the cooked apples in an air tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. You can mix the yogurt up ahead of time and also store in an air tight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This dish is good served with reheated apples over the cold yogurt or cold apples over the cold yogurt....either way is good!!
