Ingredients you’ll need for strawberry yogurt hearts :

This recipe is super easy and only contains 5 simple ingredients which you possibly already have in your kitchen cupboards / pantry! If not, I have listed them below for you so make sure to jot them down on your shopping list for your next shopping. grocery trip!

  • Strawberries : It’s best to use fresh strawberries BUT you are more than welcomed to use frozen, I just find they don’t look as vibrant in colour or nice when you cut into the hearts. The also make the yogurt go a-little mushy and watery. They’ll taste delicious regardless though!
  • Greek yogurt : You’ll want to use a thick dairy-free, vegan friendly greek yogurt for the best creamy filling. Some great vegan greek yogurts are Oatly Greek Style, Alpro Greek Yogurt and Koko Greek Style Yogurt.
  • Syrup : Use maple syrup or agave for a-little added sweetness. I like to use maple as I love the flavour!
  • Chocolate : Depending on how dark you like your chocolate, I recommend 70% and above dark chocolate for a rich, intense flavour. The darker the chocolate, the more decadent the dessert.
  • Salt : This is optional but I like to add a sprinkle of flaked sea salt on to of the hearts before serving. It beings out all the flavours.

Frozen yogurt FAQ

Ingredient Substitutions

If you are unable to have some of the ingredients or can’t find them where you live, or simply want to try a different twist on this recipe, consider these ingredient substitutions:

  • Use an alternative dairy-free yogurt or plain yogurt in place of the Greek yogurt. Try to find a thick and creamy yogurt.
  • Replace the dark chocolate with dairy-free milk or white chocolate for a sweeter, less bitter vegan-friendly version.
  • Use a sweetened yogurt and leave out the syrup.
  • You can use other berries such as raspberries, blueberries or blackberries! Variations are endless!

Can I use frozen berries?

  • It’s best to use fresh berries / fruit for this recipe. Frozen strawberries / berries may release excess moisture, making it difficult for the yogurt mixture to stick and may become icy when frozen (not creamy).

Storage instructions

  • Store your frozen strawberry bites in an air tight / sealed container lined with grease proof paper in the fridge for a ‘ready to enjoy’ treat’. Store in the freezer and allow to come to room temperature before enjoying. They can be frozen for up to a month.

How can I prevent the frozen yogurt from melting while coating the blueberries in chocolate?

  • Make sure the yogurt heart is fully frozen before coating in the chocolate. Work quickly when dipping the frozen yogurt strawberry bites in chocolate, and consider doing this step in batches to prevent the yogurt from melting and getting in-to a mess.

Ingredients

Units Scale

Ingredients

  • 350g of fresh strawberries (chopped)
  • 220g of dairy-free greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of maple / agave syrup
  • 200g of dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • Pinch of flaked sea salt (optional)

  3. Scoop the strawberry mixture onto the lined baking tray, in 1/2 tablespoon scoops to make a heart shape. Alternatively you could just do 1tbs blobs.
  4. Place into the freezer for at least 2-3 hours until fully frozen.
  5. Fill a saucepan with water and place on the hob. Add the chocolate and coconut oil into a heat proof bowl and place on top of the pan creating a bain-marie. allow the chocolate to melt. Alternatively, melt in the microwave. Stir until smooth.
  6. Coat each frozen strawberry bite in the melted dark chocolate and place back on the lined tray. Freeze until the chocolate is set.
  7. Serve and enjoy. They’re even better placed in the fridge, so the chocolate stays firm but the middle is thick and creamy.
