Strawberry Creams

Here's a low-calorie treat - we enjoyed them on Valentine's Day.  Only 145 calories per serving!

This is the bag of JUNK from all my students.  NO WAY!!
I managed to avoid eating all this junk and the Salsaritas & 'Goodie' day at school.  In order to not feel deprived I found a recipe for a sweet treat I could enjoy and still stay on track.  

8 strawberries
2 oz. vanilla Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1/2 small banana
1 tablespoon sliced almonds

1.  Mash the banana.  Stir in the Greek yogurt. 

2.  Use a knife to core the strawberries. (The best way I found was to stick the knife in the middle of the banana and twist it around.  The more you get cored out, the more cream that will fit in them.)

3.  Fill the strawberries with the cream.  Garnish with the sliced almonds.  (You could also top with granola or blueberries.)

Makes 1 serving.


I tripled the recipe so my mom, husband, and I could all enjoy a Valentine's treat.
