Sweet Spring Strawberries & Cream


healthy spring dessert SFG Diary

Dear Diary,

This week, I’m all about keeping recipes bright for spring!  Sweet Spring Strawberries and cream sounds indulgent but it’s actually healthy! This simple treat will satisfy your sweet tooth but keep your waistline slim ;) There is one commonality I have at the end of every meal, and that’s dessert!  Usually it’s a full scoops of chocolate chips with peanut butter (I will forever be a reeses girl), and while that never gets old, as the weather heats up here in SoCal… I am craving desserts less heavy and more refreshing…  Sweet Strawberries with cream sounds decadent and complicated… but it’s extremely easy to make and healthy…  “Sweet” strawberries are sweetened with zero calorie natural sweetener Truvia, and the “cream” is nothing more than greek yogurt!  Brighten up the recipe with fresh mint and lemon zest… and you’ve got a winning dessert in more ways than one!  ;)

And that’s it!  The strawberries are so sweet and gooey, but have a distinct refreshing taste… the lemon adds a pop of fresh citrus and the strawberries juicies are heavenly!  It’s a dessert I can eat all weekend and still feel refreshed, healthy and indulgent!

Enjoy SFGs ;)
