This recipe is so simple that your kids can have fun preparing it!! You will only need sweet seasonal strawberries, the yogurt of your choice and paper straws.
STRAWBERRIES: I really suggest to use organic ones. Unfortunately strawberries are always in the dirty dozen food list with pesticide residues on it. Buying organic is the safest way to go.
YOGURT: I opted for a vanilla greek yogurt, thick and creamy, but you can really choose the variety that your kids like the most.
PAPER STRAW: I tried different kind of sticks (lollipop white ones, wooden ones) and I think that the paper straw is strong enough to hold the strawberry but soft enough for a toddler palate. Do not worry, your toddlers will not eat the straw!!!
If you want to prepare a nice batch of frozen strawberries and keep them available in the freezer my suggestion is to prepare the strawberries, freeze them and (one or two hours later), once froze, remove them from the tray/baking sheet and place them in a freezer bag that you will close in order to prevent the yogurt on the surface to get freeze burned. The frozen yogurt strawberries can be stored up to 6 months, but I’m sure they will be enjoyed way sooner!!!
