  • 4 cups of fresh strawberries washed, stems removed and sliced
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups non-fat vanilla yogurt


  • To a large bowl, add fresh strawberries and vanilla extract. Slightly mash berries to extract some juice, but still maintain a thick consistency.
  • Spoon mashed berries into paleta mold; place in freezer to firm for about an hour.
  • Once the berries have firmed, spoon vanilla yogurt over berries and return to freezer for an additional hour to firm.
  • Once yogurt layer is firm finish off paletas with another layer of mashed berries and return to freezer for another hour or overnight, until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, run paleta mold under warm water to help loosen the paletas. Serve immediately or place on platter with ice to keep chilled.
