    This isn't 'exactly' primal, but is full of low-GI fruit and has some protein from the mascarpone. It's a nice comfort-food-type dish on a cold day if it's served warm.

    Ingredients
    1 cup home-made plain yogurt or kefir (I used kefir this time around)
    3/4 cup mascarpone or ricotta cheese
    1/2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
    1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1 or 2 tsp vanilla extract (the real thing, not the wood pulp thing)
    3 cups fresh fruit, chopped if large (berries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, cherries, etc)
    2-3 tbsp coconut flakes
    1 tbsp brown sugar (very optional)

    In a small bowl combine yogurt, cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla extract. If it's toooooo tangy, sweeten with your choice of sweetener as desired.

    Divide fruit mix among 4 individual oven-proof dishes. Top each with the yogurt/cheese mixture. Sprinkle coconut flakes and brown sugar over top. Place baking dishes on a baking sheet and broil until sugar caramelizes and coconut flakes are toasted, about 5 minutes.

    Note: I used frozen fruit this time because that's all we have available right now. With fresh berries topping out at 5.99 for a tiny clamshell this would be an immensely expensive dish. However, the frozen fruit ended up being very watery after broiling. It was still a tasty dish.
