This was my dessert last night:
I told you I bought the “Birthday Cake” flavored Kefir on an impulse last time I went to Wegmans. I bought Kefir all the time in Ohio; both for Andrew and myself. His favorite is strawberry and mine, is, well, all of them. I’m bummed that the bottles are a WHOLE DOLLAR more here ($3.49 vs $2.49 in Ohio) but there is way more selection (hello peach!).
Anyway, I bought this particular flavor thinking it might be a neat “dessert” for those nights I want something sweet but can’t have ice cream. I’m a HUGE fan of birthday cake-flavored ice cream, so what could it hurt to try?
Well, it’s no rich-and-creamy-swirled-with-buttercream-icing-and-sprinkles scoop, but it’s not half bad! It definitely has that familiar “tang” of Kefir, so if you don’t already drink it, it would be pretty tart still. I pretty much survive on plain yogurt with mix-ins (a teaspoon of honey here, a tablespoon of jam there), so compared to that it was pleasantly sweet. I served it over my leftover fruit from dinner and it was quite yummy.
I’m a sucker for “limited edition” flavors (can anyone say pumpkin spice creamer?), so I’ll probably keep getting the birthday cake flavor while they have it. Last winter I tried both the pumpkin and cranberry flavors and they were OK. I have to admit that when it comes to yogurt, the classic fruit flavors are always good.
Here’s to a 120-calorie dessert!
