Ingredients
  • 1 pound large ripe strawberries, rinsed and patted dry
  • 8 ounces Greek strained yogurt, or regular yogurt strained in a cheesecloth-lined strainer overnight in refrigerator
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey, or more to taste
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped from pod, pod reserved for another purpose
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • Lightly toasted sliced almonds, for garnish, optional
Directions

Using a paring knife, cut the tops off of the strawberries and reserve. Slice a very small part of the tip of the strawberries off so that they will stand upright. Using the tip of the knife, cut a wedge-shaped well in the top of the strawberries.

In a small bowl combine the yogurt, honey, vanilla bean seeds, vanilla and almond extracts and stir until completely combined. Taste and adjust the sweetness by adding more honey if necessary. Using a small spoon, fill the wells in the strawberries with some of the yogurt mixture. Top with the reserved tops of the strawberries and serve. (Or, alternatively, top with a few of the sliced almonds and serve; discard tops if presented this way.)
