Gather the ingredients to make yogurt-dipped strawberries

Are you ready to make one of the best and easiest recipes of your life? If so, keep reading! These yogurt dipped strawberries hit the spot, and another nice part about them is that they're easy on the wallet, requiring just a few ingredients. When you head to the grocery store, pop by the produce aisle and get a pound of strawberries.

Next, you will need to swing by the refrigerated section and pick up a carton of vanilla Greek yogurt. Last but not least, you will need some chocolate to drizzle over the top of the strawberries. "I used a Lindt 70% dark chocolate bar. That melts really nicely," Hondrum notes. "Chocolate chips will likely be too thick to drizzle. But you could melt chocolate chips with some coconut oil to thin."

Line a baking sheet and coat the strawberries

Grab baking sheet and line it with either parchment paper or a silicone mat. Then, take out the cold, dry strawberries. Grab each strawberry at the widest part and dip it into the Greek yogurt to coat. "You can use any kind of Greek yogurt actually," Hondrum notes. "Unflavored plain Greek yogurt works fine too! If you use a flavored one like strawberry Greek yogurt they will have a pink tint." Though, she does advise against a few yogurt varieties: "I wouldn't recommend something with fruit pieces though. Definitely want to stick to Greek though since it's nice and thick. Thin yogurt won't work well (you'd have to do multiple coats and freeze in between." 

Once you dip the strawberry in yogurt, twist it inside and then pull it out. Since the yogurt is pretty thick, you don't need to dip it more than once.

Place strawberries on a baking sheet and freeze

Once you finish dipping the strawberry into the yogurt, place it on the prepared baking sheet to set. Repeat the same dipping method with the remaining strawberries, placing them on the prepared baking sheet and lining them up as you go. 

Then, pop the strawberries into the freezer for 40 minutes. "You want to freeze the strawberries to harden the yogurt. Otherwise it will be soft and messy," Hondrum notes. You will need to keep the strawberries on the baking sheet for this, so be sure to clear a good amount of freezer space. 

Melt the chocolate and drizzle it onto the strawberries

While you wait for your strawberries to finish freezing, you can start the chocolate. You can either melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave or use the double-broiler method. "A double boiler set up is a pot or bowl on top of another pot. The bottom pot has about 1" of water that you simmer. Place the chopped chocolate in the top bowl or pot to gently melt over indirect heat," Hondrum says. "Take care not to let any water get into the chocolate or it could seize up. You can also buy an actual double boiler, but I don't think that's necessary. I use a medium saucepan and a medium glass bowl." As soon as the chocolate melts, grab the frozen strawberries and get drizzling. Simply use a fork to drizzle it in a zigzag motion.

Serve and enjoy

Arrange the strawberries on a serving dish and serve immediately, before the yogurt melts. These would be great for dessert or to accompany breakfast. "I love this recipe for a fun kids snack since it's fun but healthy! It's also great for a healthy dessert," Hondrum says. "Serve as-is or with extra melted chocolate for dipping."

Anything left? "Store any leftover strawberries in a sealed container in the freezer for up to a week. Remove them from freezer about 30 minutes before eating them. "For serving you want the yogurt to still be hard but the strawberry shouldn't be hard," Hondrum notes. "It should be mostly soft with a frosty texture." We hope you loved this simple dessert recipe as much as we did!
