Strawberry + Fig Yogurt + Cucumber Bites - Clovers & Kale

This was my late morning snack and boy was it delicious! I have had my head in the books because I have my organic and bio-chemistry final in a few days. I have a habit of snacking when I’m studying so it’s important to have healthy snack ingredients on hand…otherwise I’ll go for the bag of kettle chips hiding in our pantry. I’ve been wanting to try using cucumbers as crackers in a different way than just my usual dipping them in hummus. This is delicious and filling.  The fiber from the cucumber + strawberry + fig, and the healthy fat and protein from the yogurt, make this a balanced snack/mini-meal.

I made this recipe “pretty” today…but you can definitely just dip the cucumber and strawberries into the fig-yogurt instead of piping it onto the cucumber circles.
