Check out this Sweet & Healthy Strawberry Snack Recipe for a delicious go-to treat for you and your family!
If you are looking for a Sweet & Healthy Strawberry Snack Recipe, this is super simple to throw together! This is a great snack for after school, or by the pool in Summer! This is also a great idea for when your kids are asking for something sweet, but you want them to eat something that is healthy!
Here’s What You Need:
Strawberries & Sugar
That’s all! Be sure to wash your strawberries before you eat them!
I like to “dip” my strawberries in the sugar so that I do not get too much or waste too many calories. I think this is a great way to limit the amount of sugar that you put on your strawberries. If you just sprinkle the sugar on top of your strawberries, it absorbs into the strawberries and you end up eating too much sugar. If you give yourself a limited amount of sugar, you can control how many calories you are actually consuming!
1 Teaspoon of Sugar only has 16 calories! If you limit yourself to 1-2 Teaspoons of sugar, you know exactly how many calories you are getting. This is a great way to satisfy your “sweet tooth” without wasting a bunch of unnecessary calories.
Strawberries only have about 6 calories/Large Strawberry, which means you can have 6 Strawberries and 2 Teaspoons of Sugar for only 68 Calories! I love that this snack is sweet and satisfying.
If you are making this snack for your kids, you can always cut up the strawberries and let them use a fork! Give them 1 – 2 Teaspoons of Sugar for Dipping and tell them to eat the sugar wisely because the won’t get anymore. This will also help teach them moderation when it comes to sweets!
Frozen Strawberries are a great way to enjoy this snack during Summertime! This creates a healthy refreshing snack to enjoy on a hot Summer day! You can still dip the frozen strawberries in sugar!
