Have a BERRY Good Day!

I have a real love affair with strawberries! I think it goes back to my memories of spending time with my Grandparents, picking berries in their HUGE garden. My strawberry basket never seemed to fill as fast as Grandma and Grandpa's. I think they picked faster, but they said I ate faster!  

Today is National Strawberry Day! You may not find a greeting card to help you celebrate the day, but I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to make this yummy strawberry recipe. 

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Squares.

Servings: 9
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes


1 can (14 ounces) fat-free sweetened condensed milk, divided
Non-stick cooking spray
1 cup Post Grape-Nuts™ or similar cereal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch ground cloves
1 package (10 ounces) frozen strawberries (about 2 1/2 cups)

3 cups fat-free strawberry yogurt



Measure 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk; set aside. Line 8x8-inch baking pan with foil; spray with non-stick cooking spray. In medium bowl, combine cereal, cinnamon, cloves and remainder of sweetened condensed milk. Spread cereal mixture evenly on bottom of pan, place in freezer.

Place strawberries and yogurt in a blender; cover and blend. Add 1 cup sweetened condensed milk; blend until smooth. Pour mixture over cereal, smoothing to edges of pan. Cover with foil (or plastic wrap) and freeze 8 hours or until firm.
Use edges of foil to loosen and remove from pan; let recipe thaw for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve.


Substitution Idea

Squares may be individually wrapped and stored in freezer for single servings.
