Want to have some low-calorie “comfort food” on hand? First, find some 1 cup containers.

I buy the Kirkland brand of Red Grapefruit segments from Costco. They come in a 1 cup single serve size. These are also a great sensible snack at 100 calories each. Then I save the containers, because why not?

Buy two 500 ml (2 cup) containers of LIBERTÉ Greek yogurt 0% – the vanilla flavour.

¾ cup = 140 calories

If you use the Plain variety, it’s 130 calories, not much of a difference, and I like the vanilla flavour.

Buy one 540 ml can (~2 cups) Cherry Pie Filling. I use E.D. Smith Cherry Pie Filling – Light & Fruity. Apparently 40% fewer calories than regular.

1/3 cup = 60 calories

Take out your 1/3 and 1/4 cup measures.

In the 1 cup containers layer:

  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/3 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1/4 cup yogurt

You will most likely have some leftover cherry sauce. For added delightfulness, dot each cup with some of the cherry sauce.

Each cup is about 150 calories.

Eat it partially frozen. It takes longer that way and extends the enjoyment factor.

Bon appétit!
