Strawberry Parfait

Bites

Chocolate dipped strawberries are hands-down one of my all time favorite treats. But to enjoy on the regular, I have fallen in love with these nutrient packed yogurt-dipped strawberries.  All you need are strawberries, nuts, yogurt and a few minutes of your time to create this treat I call Strawberry Parfait Bites.  Strawberries are a hydrating fruit that also provide fiber and vitamin C. This snack can be very satiating especially because I prefer using Greek or Icelandic style yogurt since they have a higher protein content. I particularly used Siggi's dairy plain yogurt for this recipe which has 17g of protein per 5.30 oz. This is such a perfect snack for both kids and adults to enjoy in the warm weather!

Servings: About 6 servings (2 strawberries per serving)

Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: None

Total Time: 10 minutes (not including freezer time)

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups of plain Icelandic or Greek style yogurt

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pistachios, almonds, unsweetened coconut flakes (you can choose 1 or a combination)

  • 12 large strawberries 

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 

Directions

  1. Wash and thoroughly dry the strawberries.

  2. Place vanilla extract and yogurt in a bowl and stir to combine. 

  3. Dip each strawberry in the yogurt until they are 1/2 or almost fully coated. You can use a spoon to smoothen/even out the yogurt on the strawberry.  Place these strawberries on a tray lined with parchment paper.

  4. Chill in the freezer for about 1 hour & enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • To make dipping a bit easier, you can insert a regular fork or small cocktail fork on the leafy end of the strawberry

  • To make this recipe vegan, you can use any dairy-free yogurt. 

  • You can store extra in an air-tight container in the freezer.
