Snacking is probably my biggest downfall when it comes to healthy eating. I think I can say the same for most of us – that when it comes down to it, its much easier to eat healthy meals than it is snacks. ALL of the good food comes in snacks form! Chocolate, ice-cream, chips….none of these are really meals – despite having the calories for a meal.
Over the past few weeks I have been trialling a number of healthier snack recipes that will kick that sweet tooth in the butt. And I think I have found the secret to making healthier snacks…..fruit!
I know, I know, it seems like an obvious not – but I don’t mean fruit on its own (which is good also) but fruit as the base of a snack…and build up! I have experimenting with a few fruit based recipes, there was my date based protein balls, and now I have begun experimenting with strawberries and bananas – So todays post is going to showcase what I have decide to call….
Strawberries & Cream-y
As I think it is the perfect healthy alternative to strawberries and cream!
Start with your tray of strawberries, I like to cut the stems off mine so i can eat them whole.Stick toothpicks into each strawberries (for cleaner holding!)
Swirl/dip the strawberries into yoghurt of your choice..preferably greek of low sugar! This is my favouritePlace them back on the tray and put into the freezer for 2-4 hours or until hard!
&Thats All folks!
Once the strawberries have frozen they give a very iceypole sort of texture and the yoghurt is so creamy! Such a sweet amazing treat- and great for warmer weather and young children to enjoy!
I hope you guys enjoy the recipe! Do you have any healthy treat idea to try?
