I love Valentine’s Day and the creative license it lends to playing with food. Here is one of our favorite classroom treats to share. It’s quick, easy and delicious; one of my favorite combinations. This recipe has always been a crowd pleaser and is great for not only Valentine’s Day, but for birthdays, tea parties and mother’s day celebrations.
3 oz. low fat strawberry yogurt
3 oz. low fat blueberry yogurt
3 oz. light or fat free whipped topping
1 – 2 packages of frozen mini fillo cups (15 per package)
Thaw the fillo cups for 10 minutes. Rinse the strawberries, remove the greens and slice; set aside. Rinse the blueberries and set aside. In a bowl, fold the yogurts and the whipped topping together. Fill each fillo cup with the mixture. Lay the strawberries around the top as if they are pedals on a flower and top with a blueberry as the center of each flower.
Healthy Tip: Replace the whipped topping with vanilla Greek yogurt as a whipped topping alternative.
