Expert Tips

You can use 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free yogurt (any fruit flavor) instead of the yogurt in the recipe if you like.

To toast pecans, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
