If you’re looking for a creamy, frozen, chocolatey treat made with wholesome ingredients, this strawberry yogurt bowl with a magic chocolate shell will be your new favorite dessert or snack.

The base consists of vanilla yogurt mixed with finely chopped fresh strawberries and a touch of sweetener. To add some excitement, I melted dark chocolate and poured it on top of the strawberry mixture. I then freeze the dish, so that the chocolate creates a crisp shell. With the hot summer days ahead, this is an easy and healthier alternative to storebought ice cream confections.

The satisfying crunch of breaking through the hard chocolate shell, revealing a strawberry-yogurt filling, is hard to beat. Strawberries and dark chocolate are not only a flavor combo made in heaven, they are also full of antioxidants, while yogurt contributes protein and probiotics, making this the perfect healthy treat.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup finely diced strawberries
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • cup dark chocolate chips
  • granola or chopped nuts for topping, (optional)

Instructions 

  • In a bowl, combine the strawberries, yogurt, vanilla, and honey. Mix well and transfer into a bowl.
  • To melt the chocolate, create a double boiler on the stovetop or melt the chocolate in the microwave. Create a double-boiler by filling a medium pot with 2 cups water. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Place a heatproof bowl on top of the pot (be sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the simmering water.) Add the chocolate to the bowl. Stir constantly until the chocolate is completely melted. Turn off the heat. Once melted, pour the chocolate on top of the yogurt, making sure you cover the top with a thin layer.
  • Pop the dish in the freezer until the chocolate has solidified. Break the shell with a spoon and enjoy!
  • Additional toppings: granola or any chopped nuts are optional

Notes

If the chocolate shell becomes too hard from the freezer, let it thaw and soften up a bit at room temp. 
Use any dairy-free yogurt of choice.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    This recipe was absolutely delicious. I used non dairy yogurt and vanilla extract. I did not have a chopper so I hand chopped the strawberries into very fine pieces. I did not have granola or nuts so I used a small amount of finishing salt on the hardened chocolate. I shared the bowl with my husband and we were both licking our spoons at the end!
