Yogurt Filled Strawberry Pots!


I read though Health.com for healthy tips.. While I was browsing through the website last evening.. I noticed this recipe to enjoy Strawberry’s.. I had strawberries in the fridge as it’s the season now.. ! Been feasting on them from the time the season was on.. ! 😀

Fresh Strawberries...

I should say we ate the best strawberries ever when we were driving down to Cornwall last weekend.. there was slow moving traffic for a kilometre or so.. & I saw signboards on the side of the road that said.. “Buy fresh Strawberries handpicked straight from the farm..” & I had to buy some.. & then for another hour or so kept eating them.. 🙂 They were the sweetest strawberries I had ever had..!

Anyway… this recipe can be enjoyed as a side during breakfast or as a dessert after a meal.. Fill the strawberry pots with your favourite yogurt or ice-cream.. sprinkle the top with corn flakes/nuts/raisins or any other topping of your choice & voila there you end up with something that looks pretty & tempting!

Tip: For you diet conscious people.. use fat-free greek yogurt.. flavour like Vanilla, coconut & banana go best.. but feel free to use any flavour you like…. & for those who don’t care about calories use full fat greek yogurt/slightly melted ice cream of your choice… Cool them if you wish to, before you serve them.

For those of you who have trouble making your kids eat fruits.. this maybe a good way.. Make it look pretty, i’m sure they will make their hands dirty! 😀

Try one... :)

Ingredients: (Serves 2)    Preparation Time: 5-10 mins
Strawberries – 200 gms, larger the better, Sweeter the better too.. 🙂
Greek Yogurt/Thick yogurt/Ice-cream – 2 tbsp
Banana – 1/4 of a ripe banana
Tip: If you plan to use plain greek yogurt, you can add a few drops of vanilla essence & mash 1/4 of a banana into it; & stir in some sugar if required. You can add some honey instead of sugar too.
Toppings of your choice; I used some Wheatabix & almond flakes, raisins & cinnamon powder to sprinkle on top.

Method:
Mash up the banana in a bowl. Now add the yogurt to this & mix well.
Tip: To reduce the sugar added, I used very ripe banana’s.

Add sugar/honey if you used plain yogurt. Take each strawberry & de-core each of them carefully, as shown. Make sure you don’t end up puncturing the sides..

For the filling:
Option 1: Fill the strawberry pot with the banana+yogurt mixture. Chill if required.

Option 2: Else fill the pots with melted ice-cream of your choice. Place them in the chiller.

Top the filled strawberries with your choice of toppings… I added some wheat flakes from my pack of breakfast cereals, almond flakes & raisins.. finished it by sprinkling just a wee bit of cinnamon dust.. & we had them along with our breakfast.. 🙂
