Strawberry Yogurt Bites
I live in the north so I wasn’t sure if I’d have to pay an arm and a leg for fresh Strawberries this time of year. Just so happens I caught them on sell for $2.00 a quart at a local market. Outside of the visual appeal, a cup of strawberries are packed with more vitamin C than an Orange. Combine a low fat or fat free strawberry yogurt with sugar free gelatin and we’re on our way to a low cal, guilt free dessert bite. Go ahead and lick the spoon.
Bruno Mars, The Lazy Song - I like this song because it reminds of those few weekends when I did nothing. Remember the first part of our mantra is “Look Good” which is a priority. This recipe is quick for the diva who needs to spend less time in the kitchen and more time taking a beauty nap before that date. Fluff up a satin pillow and relax. It’s simple and cost very little to make so you can use your Christmas cash for shopping at a post holiday sale.
3 6oz containers of low fat or fat free Strawberry Yogurt
12 Foil Cupcake Liners
1 3oz package of sugar free Strawberry flavored gelatin
Pour all 3 yogurt containers in a 2 quart size microwaveable bowl. Add the entire package of gelatin and stir well until you get a reddish color with no white specks. Place the bowl in the microwave and set for 1 minute. After the first minute, stir the mixture and place it back in the microwave. Repeat these steps for a total cook time of 3 minutes, making sure to stir between each minute.
Pour even amounts into the cupcake liners. I used an ice cream scoop to ensure that I had the measurements pretty even. Slice the eight strawberries in half with the stems on. Place the filled liners on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for an hour or until firm. I leaned more with two hours to ensure firmness. Remove the cupcake liners and place the bites on a serving tray, bottom side up. Place the strawberry slice on top.
