Low Fat Cherry Blueberry Muffins

These little babies are good!  As you can see I really like the cherry blueberry combination.

The vanilla yogurt keeps them moist while the applesauce keeps them low fat.  These have no oil or butter.

Then you can add more butter to the top! These are great for little hands and mouths and you can feel great feeding them to your kids.

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons applesauce
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup pitted cherries
  • ½ cup blueberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the eggs, yogurt, applesauce, almond, milk and vanilla.
  4. Add the wet ingredient to the dry, and stir just to combine.  Stir in the fruit.
  5. Fill each muffin tin ⅔ full.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.

You can also cook this in a loaf pan.  It will take a little longer to cook.

If you are counting calories you can use a sugar substitute (one that measures like sugar) and an egg substitute.  I’ve tried the muffins with the substitutions and they turn out great.

This recipe can easily be make vegan by using a soy or almond yogurt.

Cherry Blueberry Smoothie

So I have joined forces with fitnessformommies.net, as a regular contributor!  I’m so excited and that means good things for you, my With Love from the Vine readers as well!  Every Monday, I will feature a healthy recipe to be featured on fitnessformommies.net.  This week is all about the smoothie!

I love smoothies as a quick and easy breakfast, snack, or even lunch.  Make sure to add in some protein powder to give your smoothie some staying power in your body and you are golden!

I have tried many protein powders, and this new one, Plant Head, fits the bill.  For only 110 calories you get 15 grams of protein!  That puts this whole smoothie at only 250 calories!  Plus, if you use soy yogurt its vegan and gluten free.  You can’t go wrong here. Plus it is such a pretty color!
