Better For You – Strawberry Jell-O Yogurt Snack Bites

When it comes to making desserts, you will usually find me in the kitchen baking up something extra sweet and full of calories like my Chocolate Mocha Cupcakes with Kahlua Cream Cheese Frosting. I am still a sucker for a nice fruit dessert, even one that is a little bit better for you than the dense richness of a chocolate cake. Fruit and yogurt are 2 of my favorite “healthy” snacks. When I can pair them together to make a creamy and delicious dessert as simple as this Better For You – Strawberry Jell-O Yogurt Snack Bites, I am completely and 100%  satisfied.

As delicious as it was, I was trying to come up with something a little more on the healthy side with smaller portions. That is how the Strawberry Jell-O Yogurt Snack Bites were created.

Here is how we made them …
