Prep: 5 minutes


1 medium cantaloupe

One 5.3-oz. container fat-free plain Greek yogurt

1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese

2 packets natural no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. cinnamon, or more for topping

1/2 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped walnuts

2 tsp. honey


Slice cantaloupe in half horizontally, and discard seeds.

In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, cottage cheese, sweetener, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Mix well.

Divide mixture between cantaloupe halves. Evenly top with walnuts, and drizzle with honey.


HG Tips: Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each cantaloupe half so the halves sit flat. Use a grapefruit spoon to scoop out the seeds.
