Strawberries, Greek Yogurt, Coconut Sugar | Reluctant Entertainer

There a time and a place for big fancy desserts at a well-planned dinner party, and then there’s the time and the place for easy, peasy desserts at last minute get-togethers!

There’s something about looking around and seeing people happy, relaxed, in the groove – talking about life and catching up! It makes me so happy!

I love the feeling of seeing my house or backyard (summer entertaining is coming!) filled with people you love, or that you desire to love, because you’re just getting to know them.

New guests and old guests, hostessing is about feeding people and putting smiles on their faces and yummy food in their tummies.

For me, that is so satisfying.

Dinner parties–planned or last minute–make my heart very full.

We just had a few friends over, just like I explained above, and because it was last minute, I was thinking as quickly as I could about what to serve for dessert. And a healthy dessert! All of us had been watching our diets and sugar intake, and wanted to keep that going.

I grabbed my friend Kristin’s silver tray that she left at my house a few months ago (do you ever do that? use what you have in front of you?) and lined it with fresh strawberries.

We’re so happy it’s strawberry season. Soon, our own strawberries will be bursting over on the side of the house in our raised beds.

Then I filled 2 glass dishes with Greek yogurt and organic unrefined coconut sugar.

Everyone dipped and rolled their own berries, and placed them on their little dessert plates.

But another option is pre-dip and roll the berries and serve them ready to eat that way.

It was such a satisfying dessert. A few strawberries each were all that we really needed. You know how the sweet tooth sometimes wants more.

The sweetness of great friends outweighed the dessert, but everyone decided that it was a new light and healthy summertime option!

And great for company.

What’s your favorite way to serve strawberries for a last minute dessert?
