Red Velvet Cake…The name alone makes me swoon with delight!

Why does this delicious slice of heaven have to be such a diet buster?

That’s why I am eternally grateful to Yoplait for the Red Velvet Cake flavor of their Non-Fat Yogurt!

If you are trying to stay on track with your resolutions for 2012, this is the way to go.

I wanted to come up with a way to “Swap” my favorite high calorie, high fat slice of Red Velvet Cake for something just as flavorful and satisfying. That’s when the “Frozen Red Velvet Cake” was born.

Believe me, this swap is incredibly easy to make – only 3 ingredients!  At 120 calories a slice, that a cake I can feel good about sinking my teeth into!

Check out this video for tips on making this smart swap in your diet!

However, this is the just the beginning. Every Friday for the the next 8 weeks will now be “Fitness Friday!”

Stay tuned next week for the first installment with a fun announcement!
