One thing I love about summer is always having fruit in the house. One thing I don’t love is letting that fruit go bad, so I’m always looking for fun ways to mix it up! And the easier the idea, the better.
Yogurt dipped strawberries are delicious, but they always get so messy! So why not stuff the strawberries and jazz it up a bit while I’m at it?
Strawberry Yogurt Bites
Serves 2 (or just 1.. I won’t tell!)
8 – 12 strawberries, depending on size
1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
1 – 2 tbsp sliced almonds
Ice cube tray or another serving piece that will allow the strawberries to sit straight up
In a bowl, mash the 1/2 banana until pureed. Add the 1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt and mix until well combined.
Using a paring knife, cut a little bowl into the top of each strawberry. Fill each strawberry with some of the banana / yogurt mixture and set into your serving piece to sit up straight. (I used an ice cube tray!) Once all of the strawberries are filled, sprinkle the tops with the sliced almonds and a little cinnamon.
..I mean, enjoy!
This snack is perfect for the morning or afternoon. It’s a little sweet and also has some protein from the yogurt and almonds. Next time I might toss some dark chocolate chips into the mix. Because who can say no to a little chocolate?!
What’s your favorite summertime snack?
