Summer time is the best time for strawberries! They are so sweet and tasty…perfect for a low point dessert or snack.
Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my favorite treats. Since they’re kind of high in points I decided to come up with something else.
I made these frozen yogurt covered strawberries and I love them! For one thing they are super cute. My brain gets tricked into thinking I’m about to eat a chocolate covered strawberry.
They are also low in points. The only points to them are the sprinkles. The sprinkles I used are 1 Freestyle point per teaspoon. I used a 1/2 teaspoon on each strawberry so 2 strawberries is 1 Freestyle point.
I used non-fat Greek yogurt mixed with vanilla extract and Splenda for the frozen yogurt. That’s 0 Freestyle points.
For the strawberries I did not cut the tops off. It helps having the green part to hold onto when dipping them into the yogurt.
When I was a kid I was allergic to strawberries. Can you imagine!? I was so young that I don’t remember having the allergic reaction, but growing up I couldn’t eat strawberries because of it. It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s that I tried them again and I was able to eat them.
I know there are quite a few people that don’t like the non-fat Greek yogurt. I definitely do not like it plain, but I love trying to come up with ways that it tastes good.
If you like these frozen yogurt covered strawberries you should check out my Frozen Banana Pops. It’s another way I like the non-fat Greek yogurt. My Orange Creamsicle Treat is my most popular recipe using non-fat Greek yogurt. It’s really good!
