Dr Oz: 5-Layer Dessert Recipe
On today’s show, Doctor Oz showed you that you can actually have dessert and still lose weight. Gail Simmons from Top Chef came to the show to prepare her Dr Oz Approved 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert. Just typing that made me hungry!
Gail, the host of Top Chef’s: Just Desserts, told Dr Oz that when she was on set, she would eat15 desserts a day. (Wow! Are they hiring?)
The trick is to only take a few bites of the decadent desserts in order to get the full richness of the flavors. Each layer of her 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert is designed to blast belly fat.
Greek Yogurt Cake Recipe
- Dark chocolate cake mix
- 1 cup of Greek yogurt
- 1 cup of water
Mix ingredients together until there are no lumps. Pour into a cake pan and bake at 350 degrees. The proteins in this layer will activate fat belly burning agents.
Coconut Milk Ricotta Layer
- 4 cups of ricotta
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup of shredded toasted coconut (for texture)
- 4 Tbsp of agave syrup (good for glycemic index)
Mix ingredients and pour over the cake. This acts as the whipped, creamy layer.
Flaxseed Walnut Layer
Layer 3 (Adds crunch!):
- ½ cup of oats, toasted
- ½ cup of ground flaxseed
- ½ cup of finely chopped walnuts
Put ingredients into a bag and shake, shake, shake. Pour out contents over the cream.
Layer 4 (Flat belly berries!):
- 1 cup of strawberries
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 1 cup of raspberries
- 1 cup of blackberries
Use whichever berries you prefer. Include the kids and have them pick which berries they like!
Dark Chocolate Layer
- Dark chocolate shavings
- Grate the chocolate onto the berries
Repeat all 5 layers
When done, you end up with a delicious belly-blasting dessert. Dr Oz and Gail dug into the dessert and stated it was delish. This dessert has only 150 calories per serving. (Don’t get too excited. 1 cup is the serving size, and not the entire dessert.)
