Whipped Honey-Vanilla Yogurt with Toasted Coconut, Pineapple, and Sliced Strawberries

Since we gave up sugar for Lent, we’ve been keeping our eyes out for desserts (and breakfasts) that are only sweetened with natural sugars like honey, maple syrup, and fruit. We came across this lovely yogurt recipe in the latest edition of Martha Stewart Living. You whisk together Greek yogurt, a bit of heavy cream, vanilla bean seeds, lemon zest, and honey. The yogurt is topped with some toasted unsweetened coconut, pineapple chunks, and sliced strawberries. This makes for a healthy and delicious treat that is suitable for breakfast but could also double as a dessert. Who needs sugar? Well, I’m not going to answer that question…
