When you combine the amazing macros of greek yogurt with the fun of sweet berries and whipped cream, magic happens! Dress up your yogurt with our fun, easy, macro-friendly recipe for Yogurt Berry Sundaes.
I’ll let you in on one of my proudest parenting hacks that came about by pure accident:
Somehow, my kids have learned that dessert = greek yogurt.
I wish I could tell you that they’ve watched me eat it after dinner so often that they just picked up the habit, but I’m still learning to like *any* yogurt, so it’s not that. I had two kids under the age of two for a while and I honestly think it happened because the big one was still hungry after dinner, and I didn’t have anything else to feed her, so I offered her yogurt after dinner. lol #truthinadvertising It was likely a survival mechanism to keep my hands free to take care of the tiny baby while the slightly bigger baby fed herself. That whole period of their childhoods is still a blur to me, so I can only speculate. Either way, this magical routine was born. Wish I could take more credit for it. 😉
What do you get this berry sundae to be sweet?
While we usually stick to Yoplait’s Greek 100 yogurt with some sort of fruit flavoring, sometimes we get fancy with our “desserts” and I make this Berry Sundae for the girls. They think it’s a huge deal and I think they’re getting extra fruit into their diets. Win-win.
The great thing is that you can prep the berries ahead of time and let them do their sugary-syrupy thing until you need them. They actually get better with a little time to sit. And the berries are actually sweet enough that you can skip flavored yogurt and serve it with plain greek if you want to. Or it’s amazing with vanilla! YUM!
Now, onto the recipe!
- 1 pint of strawberries
- ½ pint of blueberries
- ½ pint of blackberries
- 1 tsp sugar
- whipped cream
- fresh mint (optional)
- yogurt of your choice (not included in macros)
- Remove stems from strawberries and cut into halves or fourths. Mix together.
- Add sugar and let sit. It will make a cool sauce. Super light and sweet. Consider adding fresh mint here. Remove from stem and chop.
- Get your yogurt ready (which may mean removing the lid and giving it stir).
- Add 1/6 of berry mixture and 2 tbsp of whipped cream when you serve.
Vegetarian: You bet!
Gluten Free: Absolutely!
Dairy Free: If you find a dairy free "yogurt" you like and skip the whipped cream, you could make it work.
