Hoppy Easter Week! While we believe that holidays are an appropriate time to indulge in treats (Peeps, anyone?), it's good to throw some healthy snacks into the celebrating too!
This week we'll be featuring 3 healthy Easter treats for kids in advance of Sunday's egg-stravaganza. These yogurt-dipped strawberry "easter eggs" are delicious, healthy, and Instagram-worthy. Now let's hop to it!
Speaking of Instagram, if you make any of these, post a pic on Instagram and tag us (@nomsterchef). We’d love to see them!
Yogurt-Dipped Strawberry "Easter Eggs"
Recipe adapted from Salt & Lavender
30 minutes active time, 60 minutes in the freezer (90 minutes total)
- Strawberries (as many as you would like to eat!)
- Large tub of plain Greek yogurt
- Food coloring drops
- Sprinkles (optional)
- Sheet pan
- Wax paper
- Small bowls (one for each color you want to make)
- Spoons (one for each color)
- Toothpick (optional)
Line baking sheet with wax paper
Divide Greek yogurt into as many bowls as colors you'd like to make (we made 5: purple, pink, blue, green, yellow)
Drop food coloring into each bowl, keep adding until you get the desired color
Dip strawberries into yogurt, arrange on baking sheet
Leave in freezer for 30 minutes
Dip strawberries into yogurt for a second time (to make the coating nice and thick)
Optional: Add sprinkles, if desired
Put back in freezer for 30 more minutes
Optional: If you want to make fancy eggs, use toothpicks to make "egg" designs after the second freezing. Freeze again to set the designs, or eat right away as we did!
Try adding the sprinkles after the first layer of yogurt for another cool look.
