These Strawberry and Chocolate Parfaits only take 10 minutes to make and is healthier than many desserts made with yogurt, strawberries and chocolate!
One of my biggest passions is taking a recipe that is not healthy and making it healthier. If I could do that for a living, I would (oh wait, I kind of do!). For these strawberry and chocolate parfaits, I wanted to make a romantic dessert for Valentine's day that tasted great but was not too indulgent.
It got the stamp of approval from the two loves of my life: my husband and daughter. What I loved is that they look fairly impressive but are very easy to make. It took me maybe 10 minutes to put these together.
If you are celebrating Valentine's day at home or if you want to have dessert at home, make these! These parfaits combine strawberries, vanilla yogurt, chocolate protein, chocolate sauce and chocolate shavings for a delicious dessert. I may or may not have eaten two of these within 3 hours...
