Strawberry Swirl Dessert


 I love strawberries...


If you are looking for a healthy & oh so fabulous spring/summer dessert this one is perfect.  This is a Skinny Taste recipe {again}, and my contribution to the BBQ my friend Kelli had.  You can find the Skinny Taste directions {here}.  This makes 6 servings and each servings has 182 calories.  Mine probably had 10 or so more calories, because I used Lite Cool Whip instead of Free Cool Whip. 

Ingredients: 
  • 1.5 lbs strawberries, hulled and cut in half
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar {you could use sugar as a substitute}
  • Salt {just a pinch}
  • Lemon Zest {1/2 tsp}
  • Lemon Juice {1 1/2 tsp lemon juice}
  • 16 oz Lite Cool Whip
  • 12 oz Vanilla Greek Yogurt {I used Chobani}
Place your sliced strawberries in a medium size bowl.


 Add the agave...


Using a potato masher to mash up half of the strawberries.


Bring strawberries, and agave to a boil.  Bubbles will form on the outer edges.  Scrape foam from the top of the strawberries.


Add lemon zest and lemon juice to the strawberries.  Allow to boil for 5 minutes.


Scrape off all the foam you can.  Pour the strawberries into another bowl, and allow to cool to room temperature.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Grab the remaining ingredients:


Fold the cool whip & yogurt together.


This part I found semi-challenging.  Gently fold the strawberry mixture into the cool whip.  You are wanting for the strawberries to look swirled in.  Mine looked just mixed in, but it still tasted yummy!  :) Place in super cute dessert cups {mine are from Ross}.  The direction did not say to refrigerate or freeze.  I thought the texture was prefect after I froze the dessert, and then let them sit out for 15 minutes before serving.  


The BBQ was wonderful :)  We had a super cute grill master {miss him}.


He did a good job...


We had a ton of food!


Hope ya'll had a great weekend!
