Spring Clean the Kitchen
This month’s theme for The Recipe Redux is spring cleaning! We all are in need to do it sooner than later so this was recipe was helpful while I was cleaning out my fridge. I was to use at least 3 ingredients that were already in my refrigerator and create something healthy out of it. Of course I always have a sweet tooth so I made this light and tasty treat using what I normally have in my fridge–fruit and yogurt.
Light, fluffy and sweet! This makes the perfect dessert when you are wanting to indulge--except no need to feel guilty with this low-cal treat!
2 cups of Vanilla or Strawberry yogurt
2 cups of Cool Whip
½ tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
4 finely chopped fresh strawberries
Strawberries for dipping
- In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt, cool whip, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and strawberries together until well combined. Transfer dip into a serving bowl and serve with fresh strawberries! You can also use cubed pound cake to dip as well, I just wanted to use up my strawberries!
This recipe makes for a perfect snack! I actually ate this for breakfast because, why not?! I was trying to use what I had in my fridge and I was also trying to go the healthier route..This dip would be fantastic with cubed pound cake, vanilla wafers or any other favorite sweet of yours! This summer favorite dessert is now a favorite breakfast or after-dinner treat. Next time you are at the store to buy yogurts for your breakfast or snack, be sure to think of this recipe!
