Guilt Free Cannoli Cream!! Say What?!?!?!


If you are anything like me....Italian, have a sweet tooth, love desserts.....than look no further!! 

One of my favorite desserts is Cannoli's!!! When I started my health & fitness journey, I though for sure I would have to give these up....and I said to myself "It's OK - I want ot be healthy...I do not need Cannoli's"

Yet at every holiday or family function - they are there....staring at me....calling to me....Kristin - eat me....just 1 bite. It's never just one bite though. 3 Cannoli's later and I am feeling guility and disappointed in myself. JUST PUT DOWN THE CANNOLI!!

Well my friends - I searched high and low for a cleaned up version and I finally found one!!! I made it last night, took a little taste taste - and then dreamt about it!! I couldnt wait for my snack today when I can eat it with my fruit!!

It's a dessert that is filled with protein, tastes great, and will leave you with no guilt!!

Try this No-Guilt Cannoli Dip! Pair it with some sliced apples, bananas or grapes. Or, simply enjoy with a spoon.
