Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

The next dish was an amazing discovery and has become a lifesaver for the low carb diet.  My wife has gotten tired of constantly having eggs for breakfast.  One day at the store I stumbled upon low carb yogurt.  They actually have an abundance of flavors and only have 3 net carbs per cup.

This has become a simple, quick, and tasty low carb breakfast.

1/2 Carton Low Carb Yogurt (Flavor of your choice)
1/4 Cup of mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries)
1/8 Cup chopped almonds
1 Tbsp Whipped Cream

Follow these complicated and detailed instructions very carefully.  Place yogurt in a bowl and top with berries, chopped almonds, then whipped cream.  Enjoy!!!!!


Variation into a dessert:
I have to give credit for this variation to my malfunctioning refrigerator.  We just spent $300 to repair our fridge that wasn't cooling correctly, and since then it has become too cold and has been freezing things in the refrigerator.  I pulled one of the low carb yogurts out of the fridge and it was completely frozen.  I set it on the counter to thaw, but became too impatient after about 15 minutes.  What I ended up with was frozen yogurt that was creamy and flavorful. I made the same as above, but instead it ended up as ice cream with all the toppings.  Once I fix the fridge, I will just have to accidentally put a cup of yogurt in the freezer every once in awhile.
