My Latest Obsession


Have you ever eaten a Chocolate Raspberry Truffle from Godiva? OK, this doesn't taste as good as that, but I think it's as close as yogurt can get.


My latest obsession is raspberry sauce. Most days for lunch, I'm adding it to Greek Yogurt with some chocolate chips and convincing myself it's health food.

Raspberry Sauce

2 tsp cornstarch
3 TBSP sugar
1/3 c. water
12 ounces frozen raspberries, thawed (not thawed work, too...it just takes longer)

In a small saucepan, stir together the cornstarch, sugar and water. Add the raspberries and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture boils. Continue stirring and boil one additional minute.


Pour the sauce into a mesh sieve placed over a bowl to remove seeds. The sauce can be served warm or cold. Store in the refrigerator.


Yogurt isn't the only thing made more delicious with this sauce. Coming later this week......

Oh, yeah.

  2. Yum! I love greek yogurt, and I'm sure it would be amazing with this sauce. Would be great with chocolate cake, too... but that's not nearly as healthy :)

  4. That sounds incredible. I am not a huge fan of raspberries, but I'm wondering if the same could be made with strawberries?!?

  5. That's it...

    I'm not looking at any more desserts on cooking/baking blogs until Easter.

    Don't you know I gave up sweet for Lent?

    Sigh...

  15. I love yogurt with chocolate chips. It's what I have for dessert many nights. My shortcut is to just stir in a TBSP of jam. Nothin' like a weeknight dessert!
