Another Reason to Love Greek Yogurt

Reason number one is that it tastes great--even the fat free is awesome.

Reason number two?  One single serve cup has 18 grams of protein.  For 100 calories..and no fat.  (Brand is Chobani.)

I've been eating fewer fat free Cool Whip desserts this week in an effort to swap out some carb calories for protein calories.

I'm adding sweetener to a single serve cup of yogurt, spreading it in a shallow dish, topping it with a layer of fat free Cool Whip (27 grams) and one broken graham cracker.

I'm calling it Graham Cracker Pie.

Simple but delicious.  And only 210 calories.
