Think of this as apple pie a la mode—minus the crust. Use your favorite apple varieties, red or green. This beautiful-looking dessert is so fresh and delicious, and you'll the fact that it comes together in less than half an hour. It's lightened thanks to using applesauce and Splenda for the sweeteners. The vanilla nonfat yogurt provides the finishing touch. Bonus: You won't even have to turn on the oven or stovetop, as everything gets heated through in the microwave, so you can basically make this dessert at any time. It really doesn't get much more convenient than that!
