Kind of a cold dreary day and I’m in kind of a funk. I have a container of strawberries in the fridge. Strawberries can cheer anyone up for sure! What better way to get out of my funk than cooking to keep my mind off of all the other stuff going on in my life like work, my daughter going to prom next weekend, then graduating June 2nd, her graduation party, then moving to college and leaving me here with just the boys, and never ever coming home again to see me…. well ok, so that might be a bit dramatic. But, I may or may not be dealing with this whole growing up thing very well, just for the record I am dealing just fine! Thank you very much. ON to the strawberry jello yogurt bites!
Jello was on sale last week at the grocery store so I bought 3, I only needed one for the mandarin pineapple jello salad but sometimes it’s good to have jello around. The strawberry Jello box had this recipe on the side and sounded good and fairly low calorie (I used light yogurt) so why not give it a try. Strawberry and Jello are two of my favorite summer treats. Strawberry pretzel salad, my ALL time favorite! But that’s another post. In addition to these tasty bites I made Strawberry Banana Bread with Strawberry butter. OMG it was amazing! Strawberries really do say spring/summer to me. So, even if it doesn’t currently look or feel like summer outside, inside my house we are already there.
STRAWBERRY JELLO YOGURT BITES
- 1 pk 3 oz strawberry Jello
- 3 6 oz containers strawberry jello
- 4 strawberries sliced for garnish
- Mix yogurt and jello in a microwave safe bowl
- Microwave on high 2 min, stir
- Microwave another 2-3 min until jello is dissolved
- Spoon into 16 mini muffin cups
- Refrigerate 1 hr
- Garnish with sliced strawberries
If you are looking for a small refreshing snack these bites are it. They are about 25 calories per serving with the light yogurt and they are worth it! I plan on taking them to work to curb my mid day hangry attack. Easy and delish, you really have to try them.
