Strawberry Shortcake Dip

I've been trying to dream up a sweet dip lately and this lovely concoction came to me. I was inspired by the strawberry shortcake my mom and grandparents used to make for my family when I was younger. It was simply smashed strawberries and sugar over the little shortcake cups or buttered toast and it always hit the spot. It felt like a treat, like we somehow were allowed to eat dessert for breakfast! This is a party friendly version of the childhood strawberry shortcake I remember. Serve the dip with vanilla wafers and graham crackers!

Total time: 10 minutes

1 lb strawberries
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
2 tsp sugar

1. Chop strawberries into small pieces. Mash half of the strawberries in a bowl with a fork.

Start off with a whole 1 pound container of beautiful strawberries.

Chop all of the strawberries into small pieces.

Mash half of the strawberries with a fork.

Then a nice and creamy base of vanilla yogurt and whipped cream cheese (the whipped kind is easier to mix)...

Mix the strawberries, vanilla yogurt, whipped cream, vanilla and sugar.

Vanilla wafers and graham crackers are perfect for dipping. So sweet and so easy!
