Need a light snack or dessert that won’t weigh you down? Forget ice cream and layer fruit and yogurt for a satisfying and energizing sweet treat! The fruit will give your brain and muscles a boost with their high fiber, nutrient-rich carbohydrates and the protein from the yogurt will keep you feeling satisfied and make that energy last even longer!
