Interesting Topping for Fruit Discovered

I was clapping myself on the back for inventing this dessert topping and then thought...."What if this has been around for ages and you'll be making a chump of yourself by claiming to have invented it..." Ah, what the hey:

I and my daughter out law made some super fruit salad last Sat. night. As a topping, I mixed together some 2% Fage yoghurt and some lowfat Philly cream cheese, added a tiny bit of sugar and a drop of vanilla. Whipped it together and plopped it on top of the salad. Wonderful! Delightful. Easy.

    That sounds good...sort of like ambrosia just using yogurt.

      One of my favorite toppings for fruit salad is wheat germ or grape nuts and a little good maple syrup. The former in particular lends a great textural contrast.

        My great-grandmother made a fruit topping that is still in the popular rotation. Basically, it's orange curd w/ whipped cream folded in. I will try it immediately w/ the Fage yogurt. Reduce the fat...take out the whipping step...thanks!

          I often combine Fage 2% w/lemon curd (maybe 2 parts yog. to 1 part curd, it's so sweet) and then top it with fresh berries for a healthier summertime dessert.
