Vanilla Cream
Recipe from EatingWell

This versatile creamy topping blends the nutritional virtues and creamy texture of drained nonfat yogurt with the luxury of a little whipped cream. Use it in place of full-fat whipped cream or dessert topping. If you like, you can make variations by using different flavors of yogurt or even whisking in a bit of cocoa powder.
