Nutritional values

Similar to the original dessert named after Nellie Melba, a once-famous opera diva, this version is without vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Luckily, the low-fat version with fine vanilla yogurt tastes just as good and is easy on the waistline!

For all those who absolutely want ice cream with it, use one of the newer varieties with a maximum of 3 percent fat.
