Lite Strawberry Swirl Jars

 Uhhhhhhh what in the world happened to JULY?  Did we even have a July this year?  Seriously!  I vaguely remember the 4th, I think it happened. 

If you watched my insta stories this weekend then you already saw these Lite Strawberry Swirl Jars.  This is actually an old recipe I did {here} but I decided to change things up and use mason jars.  We BBQed with Tall Tan Man's family on Sunday and I ALWAYS NEED a dessert when we BBQ... #gimmieallthesugar #andatreadmill

Lite Strawberry Swirl Jars
Adapted from Skinny Taste


1.5 lbs of Strawberries
1/3 cup Agave nectar
Pinch of Salt 
1/2 tsp Lemon Zest
1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
12 oz Lite Cool Whip, softened
12 oz Vanilla Greek Yogurt


1.  Remove stem from the strawberries and cut them in half.  Take half of your strawberries and mash them with a potato masher.  

2.  In a medium skillet, bring strawberries and agave to a boil.  Add salt, zest, and juice to strawberries and boil for 5 minutes.  Pour strawberries into a bowl and refrigerate for one hour. 

3.    In a large bowl, stir together cool whip and yogurt.  Once combined, fold in strawberries.  Try to not over stir to keep the "swirl" look.  Grab 6 small mason jars and fill them with a small spoon.  Wipe away any mess and refrigerate for another 15+ minutes.  

How cute is my "helper"?
