    Fruit and Cream Crisp


    • 2 tablespoons light cream cheese
    • 1 teaspoon sugar, or sugar substitute
    • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2/3 cup fresh fruit like peaches, berries, or cherry halves, sliced or diced
    • 1 or 2 pinches ground cinnamon
    • 1/3 cup low-fat granola
    • 1/8 cup light vanilla ice cream or nonfat frozen yogurt optional


    Step 1
    Add cream cheese, sugar and vanilla to a medium/large microwave-safe dessert cup (like a Pyrex custard cup) and stir with a fork to blend. 
    Step 2
    Spread cream cheese mixture evenly on bottom of the cup, then top with the fruit of choice.
    Step 3
    Sprinkle some cinnamon over the top of your fruit, then cover with granola. 
    Step 4
    Cover with a microwave-safe cover and microwave on HIGH until fruit and cream cheese are lightly bubbling (1 1/2 to 2 minutes). 
    Step 5
    Serve as is or slightly cooled, or top the warm dessert with a cookie scoop of light vanilla ice cream or nonfat frozen yogurt.
