Be Mine Berry Pop

February is the month of love.

And…Valentine’s Day is around the corner!  I have a great treat you can make for your favorite FODMAPer….even if that is YOU!

Valentine strawberry dessert

As a dietitian, I love a treat that includes a little fruit with it. These adorable pops are made with strawberries dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate morsels and sprinkles! You can purchase mini bamboo skewers or lollipop sticks at your local craft store.

These are so easy and fun.  Especially with an assortment of sprinkles.  No joke…I have about 25 different kinds of sprinkles….kinda obsessed!
