Chocolate Covered Strawberry Yogurt Clusters: Sweet & Healthy!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

I love this recipe because it’s a sweet treat that’s actually relatively healthy (well, when compared to other desserts at least).

There are only 4 required ingredients, but of course you can add your own finishing touches or tweaks to adjust for personal preference.

The prep time for this recipe only takes me about 10-15 minutes and then they just hang out in the freezer.

I like to make these chocolate covered strawberry bites at lunch time or even the night before, and then they’re ready for dinner!

They’re a perfect summer dessert not only because of the use of fresh berries, but the fact that they’re great cold and a healthier alternative to ice cream. Of course, you can always sneak one for a snack or an afternoon pick-me-up!

Ingredients List

ingredients to make chocolate covered strawberry yogurt clusters with a microwave
  • 1 ½ cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup full fat honey vanilla Greek yogurt 
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil

Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

  • You could use thawed and drained frozen strawberries if you prefer, but I like the texture of the fresh berries better here. You can also sub in other berries altogether, like blueberries!
  • Feel free to swap another flavor of Greek yogurt. Strawberry and vanilla are other good options. You can also use plain, and add 1 Tbsp of sweetener (such as honey, maple syrup, or agave) or 1 tsp extract (like vanilla) for flavor
  • If you don’t have semi sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips are the next best option. However, you can also use milk chocolate or another favorite
  • The coconut oil keeps your chocolate from seizing. You could also use butter, but that’s a less healthy option for sure
  • I like to top my chocolate strawberry clusters with sea salt for the sweet and salty combo, but that’s entirely optional!

How to Make Viral Strawberry Yogurt Clusters

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the chopped strawberries and Greek yogurt, stirring to mix them evenly

  1. Onto a baking sheet or rack lined with parchment paper, wax paper, or a silicone mat, drop 2 Tbsp of strawberry yogurt mixture at a time (you should end up with around 12). I like to give them a little press to flatten them out evenly
freeze yogurt clusters to help them harden
  1. Place the sheet into your freezer and allow the clusters to freeze solid (generally about 1-2 hours depending on the size)
  2. When the strawberry bites are fully frozen, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until chocolate is fully melted and smooth (about 1 – 1 ½ minutes total in a 1000W microwave)

  1. Use a fork to dip the strawberry yogurt clusters into the chocolate, covering them completely. If you want to sprinkle yours with some sea salt, do so now

  1. Place the coated bites back onto the baking rack, and return them to the freezer for about 20-30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden
  2. Serve chilled or frozen

What to Serve With Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bites

  • Marshmallows
  • Fresh fruit
  • Pound cake
  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Salted nuts
  • Chocolate covered potato chips
  • Porter beer
  • Sherry
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Riesling
  • Moscato
  • Coffee
  • Vanilla milk
  • Strawberry smoothie

As a dessert, chocolate covered strawberry bites are best served with a drink, be it a cocktail, coffee, or non-alcoholic creamy pairing. However, if you’re serving them as part of a larger spread, they pair well with other salty, chocolatey, or sweet treats.

Try my chocolate covered strawberry yogurt clusters alongside my sweet Air Fryer Pound Cake, with crunchy Honey Roasted Pecans in the Air Fryer, some brewed Coffee in the Microwave, or with a coordinating Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini.

Recipe FAQs

Is It Good to Eat Strawberries With Yogurt?

Yes, strawberries and yogurt are a great pairing. The sweetness of the berries allows for less sugar needed, and the yogurt promotes gut health, for a great combination.

This pairing is a great alternative to ice cream when frozen.

Is It Better to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bites the Night Before?

If you want your dessert to have plenty of time to chill, or to make it when you have extra time, then it may be better to make chocolate covered strawberry bites the night before.

They keep well in both the refrigerator and the freezer, allowing you to enjoy them when you want.

How Many Days Do Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bites Stay Good For?

Chocolate covered strawberry bites stay good for 2-3 days due to the fresh fruit that is used.

They should be stored in the refrigerator since they contain both fresh fruit and dairy.

Can You Put Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bites on Saran Wrap?

Yes, you can put chocolate covered strawberry bites on Saran wrap. You’ll just want some sort of surface that doesn’t stick, allowing for easy release.

This could include parchment paper, wax paper, nonstick foil, a silicone baking mat, or plastic cling wrap.

Recipe Pro Tips

  • I use my fork to flip the clusters over in the chocolate to coat both sides. If one does happen to fall apart, gently push it back together before putting them back in the freezer, and they’ll re-stick as they harden
  • Depending how big your clusters are and how thick you coat them, you may need more chocolate to get them all thoroughly coated

Storage Tips

  • Chocolate covered strawberry yogurt clusters should be stored in the refrigerator and are generally good for 2-3 days
  • You may freeze them as well for a more ice-cream-like consistency. However, the strawberries do get a bit hard and may be tough for younger kids to eat

I love them as a summer treat not only because of the fresh berries, but because when you freeze them they make a great way to satisfy that ice cream craving!
