Honey Yogurt with Strawberries, Pecans and Chocolate

This beautiful little dish of “Real Food” ingredients is a great energizing snack. The last few months have been challenging and I’m constantly looking for a quick wholesome pick-me-up to keep me going. Plain Greek yogurt and fresh fruit is satisfying and healthy.

It’s versatile though and makes the perfect delicious dessert that tastes fantastic and doesn’t seem like just yogurt and fruit if you dress it up. The whipped coconut cream and the shaved dark chocolate add that touch to make it special.

I absolutely love fresh strawberries and thought the season was over. Here in the Pacific Northwest strawberry season last a very short few months, but apparently, the season goes on for most of the year in California. This week the market where I shop brought in a new batch of the gorgeous fresh organic fruit and I picked up a one-pound container.
