Yields: 15 Large Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Calories: 20 calorie per strawberry or 100 calorie for five strawberries
- 15 large strawberries
- 1/4 cup of fat-free sour cream
- 4 tbsp fat-free chocolate syrup or sauce
- 1 packet of sweetener or sugar
1. Wash strawberries and thoroughly pat dry.
2. In a mixing bowl, mix together sour cream, chocolate sauce and sweetener until the consistency is smooth and the color is uniform.
3. Dip each strawberry in dip mixture and enjoy!
Notes and Variations:
Make sure the strawberries are completely dry so the coating sticks. You may even want to let them air dry for 30 minutes after washing and patting them dry.
You could also try making this with fat-free cream cheese, for a thicker consistency. Or, you could also use fat-free whipped topping, in place of the sour cream.
Since this chocolate coating won’t harden, instead of dipping the chocolates you may also want to serve it in the center of a fruit platter.
This recipe also works great with other fruit. Try it with bananas, pineapple, or anything that tastes great with chocolate!
