Go Ape...for Apricots with OMNI Medical Center 's New Dessert Recipe!

Have your (healthy) dessert...and eat it too!
When you're on a medical weight loss diet, it can be difficult sometimes to find creative ways to enjoy healthy foods...much less desserts!
Here's a great new recipe OMNI Medical Center found...They're grilled apricots and only about 150 calories per serving!
This recipe makes 4 servings, to don't go to crazy with the portions after you prepare them...

Here's What You'll Need:
-2 apricots or peaches, halved and pitted
-2 cups plain Greek-style yogurt ( OMNI Medical Center likes Fage Total 2%)
-4 Tbsp chopped toasted walnuts
-4 Tbsp maple syrup
(The easiest way to toast nuts is to roast them in a dry pan set over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring once or twice as they toast!)
Here's How to Make It:
-Heat a grill (or a stovetop grill pan since it's getting chilly out), or your broiler until hot. 

-Cook the fruits until nicely caramelized on the outside, which is about 5 minutes. They should be softened but still maintain their shape. 
-Top each fruit half with 1/4 cup yogurt, 1 tablespoon of walnuts, and 1/2 a tablespoon of maple syrup.
-Serve and enjoy (or save the leftovers for another time!).
