Healthy Easter Treat for Kids: Yoghurt Dipped Strawberry “Easter Eggs”

April 10, 2019

This is a gifted post written by me, in collaboration with Aldi Australia. All opinions are 100% my own. 

You guys know how much I love my festive seasons, and Easter is definitely one of them! We grew up celebrating Easter with the whole fam bam, we’d go to my aunty’s house and do a big easter egg hunt, followed by the most amazing big breakfast you’ve ever had. And then the rest of the day would be spent eating the chocolate haul from the hunt. Honestly some of my earliest and favourite memories revolve around Easter.

Jasper LOVES food, and he will literally eat anything, including chocolate. But I really wanted to give him a little treat that was a bit healthier, so that, as we binge on our chocolate eggs, he can binge on his little own treats too. Who say’s Easter can’t be healthy, right?! So I made these deliciously healthy, yoghurt covered strawberry “Easter Eggs”  And my favourite part, is how easy they are too make! Not to mention how cute they turned out! (Big thanks to Nomster Chef for the Inspo, and Aldi Australia for the ingredients!)

INGREDIENTS

Strawberries (how ever many you want, I used 2 punnets)
1 large tub of greek yoghurt (if you want them to be a bit sweeter, go for a honey greek yoghurt)
Food colouring drops
Sprinkles

————————————————————————————————-

STEP 1

Give your strawberries a good wash

STEP 2

Line a baking tray with some wax paper

STEP 3

Seperate your greek yoghurt into smaller bowls, I  used 5 because I made five colours (purple, green, yellow, blue, orange) and add food colouring drops to your yogurt to mix the colours that you’d like

STEP 4

Dip the strawberries in the yoghurt to coat them, and place them on the wax paper

STEP 5

Pop in the freezer for 30 minutes

STEP 6

Dip the strawberries in the yoghurt a second time, so that the coat is extra thick and freeze for another 30 minutes.

If you are using sprinkles, now is the time to add them to some (or all) of the strawberries so that they can set.

STEP 7

Using a toothpick, or any other tool you have, decorate the strawberries using the leftover greek yoghurt.

you can eat straight away, or pop them pack in the freezer to set again.

Jasper absolutely ADORED them!! I can’t wait to make them again for Easter Sunday so he can sit on the grass with his “eggs” and make a big ol’ mess enjoying himself!
