Start by smashing a handful  of dark berries with a handful of nuts in a ziploc bag using a meat tenderizer (I like the combination of  blueberries, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts and walnuts) Combine one serving of full fat Greek yogurt with  one scoop of Now Organic Stevia Powder and  the berry/nut mix then stir it all up and enjoy!
