Dr Oz: 5-Layer Dessert Recipe

On today’s show, Doctor Oz showed you that you can actually have dessert and still lose weight. Gail Simmons from Top Chef came to the show to prepare her Dr Oz Approved 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert. Just typing that made me hungry!

Gail, the host of Top Chef’s: Just Desserts, told Dr Oz that when she was on set, she would eat15 desserts a day. (Wow! Are they hiring?)

Dr Oz 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert Recipe

Dr Oz approved a 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert Recipe to include in our diets!

The trick is to only take a few bites of the decadent desserts in order to get the full richness of the flavors. Each layer of her 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert is designed to blast belly fat.

Greek Yogurt Cake Recipe

Layer 1:

– Dark chocolate cake mix
– 1 cup of Greek yogurt
– 1 cup of water

Mix ingredients together until there are no lumps. Pour into a cake pan and bake at 350 degrees. The proteins in this layer will activate fat belly burning agents.

Coconut Milk Ricotta Layer

Layer 2:

– 4 cups of ricotta
– 1 cup of coconut milk
– 1 cup of shredded toasted coconut (for texture)
– 4 Tbsp of agave syrup (good for glycemic index)

Mix ingredients and pour over the cake. This acts as the whipped, creamy layer.

Flaxseed Walnut Layer

Layer 3 (Adds crunch!):

– ½ cup of oats, toasted
– ½ cup of ground flaxseed
– ½ cup of finely chopped walnuts

Put ingredients into a bag and shake, shake, shake. Pour out contents over the cream.

Berry Layer

Layer 4 (Flat belly berries!):

– 1 cup of strawberries
– 1 cup of blueberries
– 1 cup of raspberries
– 1 cup of blackberries

Use whichever berries you prefer. Include the kids and have them pick which berries they like!

Dark Chocolate Layer

Layer 5:

– Dark chocolate shavings
– Grate the chocolate onto the berries

Repeat all 5 layers

When done, you end up with a delicious belly-blasting dessert. Dr Oz and Gail dug into the dessert and stated it was delish. This dessert has only 150 calories per serving. (Don’t get too excited. 1 cup is the serving size, and not the entire dessert.)

Comments to Dr Oz: 5-Layer Flat Belly Dessert Recipe

  1. I saw the show, and I have been very excited about preparing this dessert. However, what is the breakdown in fat, sugar, fiber, and protein? Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. How long should the cake be baked?

  3. I made this wonderful desert today and we just finished a one cup serving each. It was wonderful! Not too sweet, and VERY filling. I did not want any more either….I baked the cake on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes and cut it in half. I then just cut the peices to fit evenly in a large spring pan because I didn’t have a trifle bowl. It worked just fine. I would recomend this recipe to anyone-enjoy!

  4. I was excited about trying this recipe. After tasting it though, I was very disappointed with it. It was edible but the oats,flaxseed,& coconut combination made it tase like something you would serve in a bucket to a horse. No one in my household liked it either. It was a little costly considering the outcome and leftover ingredients I probably will not use again and wind up throughing the cake away.

  5. Isla and John says:

    Watching Dr. Oz today sharing healthy snacks and weight loss tips, all of which seemed very beneficial, we were confused by the commercials for Jack in the Box’s “All American Jack Combo” double decker cheeseburger, fries and coke; Red Lobster’s 4 Course Seafood Feast; Chili’s Triple Dipper!!! We understand the necessity of advertising, however it seems hypocritical and counter-productive to bombard us with such poor choices. I wish the producers would step up to the (healthier) plate and find different sponsors.

  6. I just copied the recipe and intend to make it tonight, however, for the crunchy layer I intend to use ! c of walnuts, 1/2 c of flax-seed, and 1/2 c of almonds. The rest sounds so delicious, I don’t mind if everyone isn’t in love with it, I’m making it for me. If every one in my family also likes it, that’s a bonus! (:

  7. I did not have the agape syrup so used truvia and sugar free blueberry syrup to sweeten cheese mix. Also used sugar free devils food cake mix. Was very filling we had it for lunch one cup each and were full. It was a lot of food so next time I’ll cut it in half.

  8. Like Katie, I, too, would like a breakdown of the nutritional values of this 5-layer flat belly dessert….calories, sugars, carbs, fat, protein, etc.

  9. If you go to caloriecount.com you can add all of the ingredient’s up from the recipe, and all of the calories will come up, and you can figure out the calories, nutrition etc yourself!

  10. It’s delicious and quite filling! I will make it again and again

  11. Okay, went through caloriecount.com to get the individual ingredients figured out; however, how many cups does this dessert make?

  12. In a word YUCK. This is the most awful thing I have ever tasted. It is not good and very expensive to make. If you are looking for something sweet and delicious, this isn’t it. I actually tossed my piece in the garbage.
