We Are Drooling Over These Viral Chocolate Strawberry Yogurt Clusters
These sweet treats are being called the "snack of the summer"!
We often think of ice cream as the quintessential no-bake summer dessert. Though it is deliciously creamy, sweet and luxurious, it is also laden with fat, sugar and calories. For those of us looking for a healthier but still satisfying alternative, TikTok has numerous easy recipe recommendations.
Recently, one particular sweet alternative has been garnering viral attention: strawberry-yogurt clusters. The four-ingredient dessert comes from food influencer Nicole Keshishian Modic (@kalejunkie) and has received over 167 million views on TikTok. Here’s everything to know about the viral strawberry-yogurt clusters, including how you can make them yourself.
What Are Strawberry Yogurt Clusters?
The viral strawberry-yogurt clusters are a healthy, sweet snack or dessert. They are frozen, fruity and creamy, with an “ice cream-ish vibe,” according to Modic. Check them out for yourself in her video below.

How Can I Make the Viral Strawberry Yogurt Clusters?
To make the strawberry-yogurt clusters, you will need a small bowl, a medium bowl, spoons, parchment paper and a baking sheet. You will also need access to a freezer and a microwave. If you don’t have access to a microwave, you can also melt the chocolate over the stovetop.
This recipe has been edited and adapted for clarity. See the original version Modic shared with Good Morning America here.
- 2 cups of chopped strawberries
- 1 cup vanilla or plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- Flaky sea salt (optional)
Step 1: Combine ingredients
Add the chopped strawberries and Greek yogurt into a medium-sized bowl. Toss them to coat.
Step 2: Prep the strawberry-yogurt clusters
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop 2- to 3-tablespoon-sized clusters of the strawberry-yogurt mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer and chill the strawberry-yogurt clusters for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Melt the chocolate
In a separate small bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Use a microwave to melt the chocolate in 30-second increments. After each increment, stir the chocolate, then microwave again until combined and fully smooth.
Step 4: Dip the clusters
Once the chocolate is melted and the strawberry-yogurt clusters are frozen, dip the frozen dessert clusters into the chocolate to fully coat. Place the chocolate-coated clusters back on the parchment-lined baking sheet; the chocolate will harden into a shell around the frozen strawberry-yogurt clusters.
While the chocolate is drying, add a sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top of the clusters, if desired. Enjoy!
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week or in the freezer for up to one month.
