Frozen Yogurt Sundaes, On a Tuesday

Get together with your friends on a Tuesday. There's no need to wait until the weekend. Have a glass or two of wine and get off the stupid diet for a minute. Trust me on this one,  you need it! The work week can be looong. Stop working for the weekend. Have some fun on a Tuesday night. You’ve earned it. It will make your week more fun and the weekend not seem so far away. And have yourself an ice cream sundae that you can feel good about.

This dessert will totally make you feel good about yourself. It would tell you things like you look nice today and not tell you that you look tired (which we all know is code for you look like crap!)  No way. This dessert is simple and lovely and perfect to round out a night of decadence.

It includes low-fat frozen yogurt (healthy!), bananas (healthy!), homemade 2 ingredient hot fudge (totally healthy!), and toasted almonds (yup healthy! See?!)

My friends came over on a random Tuesday for wine and appetizers and of course we had the usual staples: wine, cheese and crackers, ridiculous girl talk, and an obscene amount of goat cheese and red pepper jelly (one of our faves. that and spinach & artichoke dip. All I’m saying is, it’s not a pretty sight watching us consume either of these)

I wanted to make a simple treat for these lady friends of mine, and I remembered this recipe I’d seen in Real Simple magazine. Enjoy. I did. And then for about 4 consecutive nights in a row….

Frozen Yogurt Sundaes

Recipe from -  4 servings

¼ cup granulated sugar

3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

1 pint low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt (I like Hood)

2 bananas, sliced

¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted

In a small saucepan combine the sugar and cocoa powder, whisk in ¼ cup of water. Turn on heat and bring to a boil. Once it begins to boil, reduce heat and simmer, whisking until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.  Let cool a little, it will thicken even more. Scoop out the frozen yogurt into dishes and top with sliced bananas, hot fudge and almonds.
