Skip chocolate-dipped strawberries and pair the fruit with fat-free plain Greek yogurt instead. This recipe has only 20 calories, compared to a typical single chocolate-dipped strawberry which has 50-75 calories. Plus, Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier (even the fat-free varieties) than regular yogurt.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Swirl strawberries and yogurt in a bowl.



Tip: Greek yogurt can stand in for high-fat and less nutritious condiments such as sour cream, mayonnaise, and whipped cream. Try a dollop of fat-free plain Greek yogurt on tomato soup, a baked potato, a soft-shell chicken taco, or a special dessert.

Did you know: Greek yogurt has twice the amount of hunger-satisfying protein per serving than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt is also a super source of good bacteria (probiotics) to support digestive health.
