Strawberry Yogurt Cones - a Valentine's Day #Recipe

Today's Valentine's Day post was created in partnership with Bi-Lo. All opinions are my own.

While I may have a sweet treat (or two) already planned out for Friday's Valentine's Day date with the Husband, I sought out a healthier alternative to make with Jackson. I spotted these Yogurt Cones on BiLo's Pinterest board a few weeks ago and knew he'd love them.

In fact, Jackson caught a glimpse of these Strawberry Yogurt Cones on my desktop and just about jumped through the computer screen asking for them. Now that's a must-make treat!

As usual, this is going to be a simple recipe that you can whip together on any budget.

We tested out both regular vanilla yogurt as well as Yoplait's whipped strawberry yogurt. Hands down, I recommend using Yoplait's whipped line of yogurts for your cones. The whipped yogurt held it's form in the cone making much less mess. I don't know about your kid, but anything I can do to lessen the mess around here the better.

Decorating & Serving Tip: We emptied out an old spice rack to hold our cones. They fit perfectly and helped keep any spilling to a minimum. Also? How fun do they look?! Download this ice cream cone wrapper stencil and use some festive scrapbook paper to dress up your cones.

I gobbled one of these down and debated another! These Strawberry Cones would be perfect to put together with your kids this Valentine's Day or to feature at your Valentine's Day parties this week :)

Strawberry Yogurt Cones


Ingredients

4 oz package Yoplait Whips yogurt (strawberry or vanilla flavors recommended, but you could use anything!)
4 tbsp. chopped strawberries
1 Keebler waffle cone

Directions

Fill your cone beginning with a layer of strawberries followed by yogurt; repeat. Top your cones off with a last layer of strawberries. Prepare just before serving as ice cream cones will get soggy if they sit too long.

Yep, it's that easy! Y'all enjoy!
