This is a dessert that you can feel good about eating  It’s rich in protein, calcium, and vitamin C…and it looks pretty too.  Instead of dipping strawberries in chocolate, you swirl them into a warm peanut butter fondue (see you later bread and jelly!).

While these peanut butter yogurt-dipped berries are a sweet treat, they steer clear of all the ‘unhealthy’ ingredients on the MIND Diet list and combine some of the ‘brain-healthy’ food groups: berries, nuts, and whole grains (if you choose to roll them in a low-sugar granola)

Peanut Butter Yogurt Dipped Strawberries

Course Dessert
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 23 minutes
Servings 8 -10

Ingredients

  • ½ cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt you can use plain if you want them less sweet
  • 2 tsp of honey
  • 1 cup of fresh whole California strawberries, rinsed and dried (about 8-10 berries)
  • Optional toppings: shredded unsweetened coconut low-sugar granola, melted dark or white chocolate to drizzle, or mini chocolate chips for a strawberry tuxedo

Notes

If you're having trouble dipping, it's because the dip has cooled down too much. Gently stir and warm it over medium low until it softens and thins again.

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir the peanut butter, yogurt, and honey until combined, warm, and thinned slightly (about three minutes). Turn off the burner
  • Holding the strawberries by their green stem, dip them in the warm peanut butter yogurt mixture
  • If you are going to roll them in toppings, roll them while warm and then place on a tray lined with parchment paper. If not, place immediately on the parchment paper
  • Serve immediately or chilled
