1 fruit, 1 lean meat, 1/2 fat
1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 small banana, sliced crosswise, divided use
1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen papaya and 1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen papaya, divided use
1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen mango and 1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen mango, divided use
1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen pineapple and 1/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen pineapple, divided use
1/2 teaspoon stevia sweetener or 1 packet stevia sweetener
1 squeeze coconut-flavored liquid stevia sweetener
1 squeeze tropical punch-flavored stevia water enhancer
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1/4 cup chopped pecans, dry-roasted
4 sprigs fresh mint leaves
In a food processor or blender, process the yogurt, 1/2 of the banana slices, ¼ cup of the papaya, ¼ cup of the mango, ¼ cup of the pineapple, the stevia sweetener, and liquid stevia sweetener in the order listed, for 1 to 2 minutes, scraping the sides as needed. Pour or spoon the mixture into four small serving bowls.
In a separate small bowl, stir together the stevia water enhancer, chopped mint, and remaining banana, papaya, mango, and pineapple. Spoon about ¼ cup of the fruit mixture on top of the yogurt mixture in each bowl. Top with 1 tablespoon pecans. Garnish each bowl with a sprig of mint.
Cooking Tip: To freeze fresh papaya, remove the peel from the papaya with a vegetable peeler. Cut the papaya in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds. Slice the halves of papaya into 1-inch lengthwise slices. Cut the slices crosswise into 1-inch cubes. Place the papaya cubes on a cookie sheet. Freeze for 2 hours, or until frozen. Transfer the papaya to a resealable plastic bag or a covered plastic freezer container. Freeze for up to two months.
