The idea that fat-free, fruit-flavored yogurt is a healthy snack is such a sham.
An individual sized strawberry flavored yogurt cup that you purchase at the store is loaded with around 15 grams of sugar, artificial colors, chemicals and sometimes even corn syrup. All that for a snack that won’t even fill you up, and sets you up for a sugar crash. Not cool.
Oh but strawberry yogurt tastes so good! There’s flavor and comfort in those creamy, strawberry spoonfuls.
Now if you were the dairy-eating type, then I’d say take plain, Greek yogurt and add some mashed, fresh strawberries. That’s a simple, delicious alternative to the really sugary strawberry yogurts.
But of course most of you (myself included) are on the dairy-avoidance diet, so Greek yogurt is out.
What’s a yogurt-loving soul to do?
Why make this awesome recipe for dairy-free strawberry yogurt, of course.
I had a lot of fun coming up with this recipe, and it came out spoon-licking good. It took a lot of self restraint to stop eating the yogurt long enough to snap a pic…I ended up taking a few bites in between 🙂
The genius of this recipe, in my opinion, is the freeze dried strawberries. I love using freeze dried fruit to create wholesome versions of kid-favorite treats, because it’s easy to pulse into a convenient powder, it has stunning color (O’Natural), and contains natural sweetness, and not processed sugar. You can even turn it into FUN DIP!
If you love strawberry yogurt, but can’t stomach dairy and want to limit sugar, give this recipe a try. It’s super quick and really really tasty 🙂 Enjoy!
