I’ve been on a sugar free, low carb diet for a couple of weeks now but have been itching for something sweet. I knew that if I was going to cheat, it had to be with something good. Because Dia Del Los Niños is coming up and I’ve been reminiscing about my childhood, I decided to make fresas con crema topped off with my all time favorite cereal, Honey Nut Cheerios. We didn’t go to a lot of fancy restaurants when we were little but we sure did enjoy when my mom would take us to buy fresh strawberries and crème at the local indoor swapmeet.
To make this yummy dessert you will need the following ingredients:
- Plain Yogurt
- Sweet Condensed Milk
- Toppings: I used crushed almonds and Honey Nut Cheerios
First step: Wash and cut the strawberries
Second step: Scoop about two spoons of yogurt per person
Third step: Mix half a spoon of condensed milk per per person in with the yogurt into a large bowl
Fourth step: Pour yogurt and condensed milk mix into a small cup, top with strawberries, nuts of your choice and cereal. I used Honey Nut Cheerios but I also recommend Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms or even Trix!
The best part about this dessert is that it takes minutes to make and I found all of the ingredients in one trip to my local Wal-Mart. Plus, it was a great bonding activity for the whole family. My little helper had a blast putting her cup together!

My kids love fresas con crema…and cheerios. They’ll probably love this!
I think they will!
Ruby, I love Honey Nuts Cheerios, but we’ve never eat them with yogurt. Thanks for the idea!

I like the idea of mixing part yogurt, part condensed milk, because there’s less guilt that way. DD would fall in love with condensed milk. She’d probably drink it straight from the can.
