Just like Kate from The Kate Chronicles, I’m a giant fan of cheesecake but not a fan of the crazy amount of calories that come with it. These just turned out so well that I had to post a copycat recipe of the ones I made inspired from The Kate Chronicles blog. They’re only about 150 calories per serving (8 strawberries) so go crazy you health nuts! I put mine in the freezer for an hour or two and they were awesome. They’re kind of like a natural popsicle and ice cream combo when frozen. They’re only three ingredients + the toppings of your choice. And they’re healthy, healthy! These would actually be awesome as an appetizer or small dish to pass at a party. Here’s the recipe for these Strawberry Banana Creams:
3 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
3 tbsp toppings of your choice
Granola, chopped nuts, blueberries, a sprinkle of cinnamon, crystallized ginger, dried cherries or cranberries, etc.
1. Use a fork to mash half of a banana and yogurt together in a small bowl.
2. Using a knife, carefully remove the top and middle of the strawberries.
3. Fill the strawberries with the yogurt/banana mixture.
4. Top with your favorite healthy toppings and enjoy immediately, OR freeze for a bit and enjoy cold. YUM, YUM! 🙂
[Yields 8 strawberries]
