As you can imagine Valentine’s Day with a house full of surfers isn’t exactly dripping in crimson and fuchsia, nor is it bursting with balloons and I am more than okay with that. Don’t get me wrong I adore romance, flowers and chocolates from my three sweethearts and I enjoy spoiling them as well. We just prefer to do so spontaneously throughout the year. Not to mention the little holidays notoriously sneak up on me. There is nothing like throwing together something cute and tasty on the fly but I am fast becoming the queen of last minute holiday treats and today was no exception.
Although Surferboy and I have been distracted the past few days, I was able to whip up this adorable bouquet of Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Pops for the guys during my lunch break. Two ingredients, fun toppings and an hour in the freezer is all you will need to make these tonight for your sweet Valentine’s.
These little beauties are my fun homage to a running joke in my house only mine are yummy as well as a wee bit healthier. Can you guess what the joke is? Hint…my name, strawberries…get it? Imagine the endless chants in my house every time there is a commercial. I wish I was that Shari.
Simply clean and remove the ends of the strawberries. Insert a mini kabob skewer in the cut end of the strawberry, and then dip the strawberry in the yogurt.
Gently remove the strawberry from the skewer and place on a parchment lined dish or cookie sheet and freeze for approx. an hour to an hour and a half. It’s really as simple as that. As long as you have strawberries, yogurt and topping you can make a quick batch this evening. Pop them in the freezer while you cook dinner and they’ll be ready in time for dessert! If not they will make a special treat any time of the year. They are also a wonderful fun after school/work snack.
We hope that you are all tucked cozily into loves sweet embrace this evening.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Shari, Surferboy & The Boys
