Treats to keep you cool this summer!

Yogurt-covered Frozen Strawberries

1 cup low-fat or fat free vanilla yogurt (or greek if you prefer)
½ cup whole strawberries
Ice cube tray

Wash and DRY your strawberries.  Remove stems.  Fill each cup in the ice cube tray halfway with the yogurt.  Place a strawberry in each and cover with yogurt until the cup is filled.  Place in the freezer and once hardened, enjoy!

Try with blueberries!  Simply dip rinsed and dried blueberries into the yogurt, place on a foil-lined cookie sheet, freeze until hardened, then keep in a zip-top bag for easy storage.

Not only are these treats easy for a dessert or snack, but they are low in calories, and high in fiber and calcium!  Who doesn’t love a two ingredient recipe?


  1. I would simply say to you all “awesome information”

  2. With obesity predicted to affect more than 50 percent of the population in the next 40 years, the age of ‘fad diets’ and ‘quick weight loss’ has boomed to epic proportions. From the apple cider diet to the Quantum Wellness, to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, each of these weight loss programs all claim to promote immediate weight loss and increased vitality.
    This is simply not correct. Fruits, veggies, whole grain, nut products, dried beans as well as oils, many include proteins. Meats in fact has high levels of sodium, fat and salt, particularly in red meat which is not so healthy due to its high levels of cholesterol. Whole grain, nuts, oils, and dried beans in fact onsist of more proteins than in meat products. Your own body requires at least 25 grams of protein per day ,so it is obvious you do not haveto eat only meat to obtain your day-to-day allowance.
