    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Recipe Notes

    I used non-fat plain Greek yogurt for this recipe.
    To make the strawberry puree, simply blend 1/2 cup of ripe strawberries in a blender or food processor or immersion blender. Add a teaspoon of honey if the strawberries aren’t very sweet. You can make it as chunky or as thin as you like. (If your mixture is too thick and not blending well, add the yogurt for that layer and blend them together.)
