Yogurt & Chocolate Covered Berries

Yogurt & Chocolate Covered Berries

Calling all chocolate lovers who crave dessert after a meal, but need something clean and healthy to have on hand. This grab and go snack or dessert is simple to make, and nice to have for when your chocolate cravings strike. These can be made dairy free, gluten free and paleo friendly.

Have you ever had the Trader Joe’s chocolate covered strawberries? Oh my goodness. They are amazing, but a little pricey for what you get. I made this recipe to have on hand for a quick treat after a meal. I love how light and clean these are.

I love the touch of yogurt for these for a little subtle sweetness. For the yogurt I use Forager and Kite Hill brands for a dairy free option. If you can tolerate regular or Greek yogurt then I would recommend a plain or vanilla flavor to nicely compliment the chocolate and fruit. You can also totally omit the yogurt as well. Whatever floats your boat, and suits your dietary needs.

Notes

*For paleo use Hu Gems for a clean option
*I take these out and let them sit for a few minutes before I eat them, so they have a chance to soften a bit.
