Dairy Free Frozen Yogurt StrawberriesI can’t quite believe that Thanksgiving is next week. I have been planning a Thanksgiving menu for quite a while, but it never got past the stage of being entered into a list on my phone. I have been so busy at work, the holidays have snuck up on me!

This week I am starting to narrow down my menu, and make a grocery list. As a vegetarian, I am all about the side dishes, and some of my favorites are the finger foods you can snatch while the other dishes are cooking.

This year I wanted to try some fruit dipped in frozen yogurt, but not everyone in my family eats dairy products. I stopped at Walmart and found Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt right in the yogurt section.

I have purchased Silk Dairy Free Yogurt before because it has 6 grams of plant-powered protein (which is important for a vegetarian like me!), it is gluten-free, and it is carrageenan-free. If you have ever had non-dairy yogurt before, you know that sometimes the consistency and taste can be questionable. Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt has a smooth and creamy consistency, and tastes amazing! Silk Yogurt is the perfect every day yogurt for your life! My kids love eating it straight from the container, while I love it because it is so great to use in my recipes.

Strawberries dipped in frozen yogurt are a great holiday side dish, because they are easy finger food, and a nice, fresh alternative to the heavier foods that dominate the holiday table. To make frozen yogurt strawberries with Silk Dairy Free Yogurt you will need:

•1 bamboo skewer

•1 pint of fresh strawberries

•1 container of Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt in the flavor of your choice

•parchment paper

•a plate or baking sheet

Rinse your strawberries and pat dry with a paper towel. Insert skewer in the top of the strawberry, and swirl it into the frozen Silk Yogurt until the strawberry is coated. Place it on the parchment-covered plate or baking sheet. Serve immediately.

These are so good! We did one tray with Silk Yogurt in the vanilla flavor, and one in peach mango. You can see all the flavors available here.

Another fun idea for a holiday side, is making a fruit turkey. For this project you will need:

•1 pear

•5 or more strawberries dipped in dairy-free Silk Yogurt

•1 bamboo skewer

Start by slicing the pear in half, lengthwise.

Then arrange on a plate or platter. Remove tops of strawberries, slice in half, then arrange around the pear to resemble a turkey’s plumage.

Use the sharp end of the bamboo skewer to carve out eyes and a beak. These areas will brown slightly, and create a “face” for your turkey.

These are so cute, AND so easy, that we even make them for snacks sometimes.
