Stuffed Strawberries & Essential Oil

I needed to make something yummy for a gathering tonight. It is, of course, strawberry season up here in Ohio, so I picked up a lb of strawberries and then looked around online for a good recipe. I also just started as an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. I’m glad that I was able to find an easy recipe and adapt it to my purposes.  Here you go!

Ingredients:

1 lb of fresh strawberries – hulled
1 8 oz container of Honey Noosa Yoghurt (or other organic yogurt brand)
2-3 drops Young Living Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend
mini chocolate chips or other topping of choice

Directions:

1.  Remove the stems and tops of the strawberries. Allow to drain in a colander while you prepare the yoghurt mix.

Citrus Fresh™ contains: Orange (Citrus aurantium), tangerine (Citrus nobilis), mandarin (Citrus reticulata), grapefruit (Citrus paradisi), lemon (Citrus limon), and spearmint (Mentha spicata). Find out more about this essential oil blend here.

3. Using a spoon, fill the strawberries with the yoghurt mix. Top with a few of the mini chocolate chips.

RecommendationThese quickly became a little runny and top-heavy, of course. You could probably stick the yoghurt back in the refrigerator for an hour before stuffing the strawberries. I put them in a container and put them in the freezer for about an hour. Any longer than 2 hours and they will freeze through. If you do not have essential oils on-hand and would still like to try this recipe, you could substitute the oils for a teaspoon of lemon or orange juice.
