This is really good and has become a regular favorite at our family gatherings. It seems to fit in everywhere.
We have tried chocolate pudding and chocolate flavored non-dairy whipped cream, but we didn't like the chalkiness feel in the mouth. Perhaps if we had used pre-made pudding instead of the instant....we will have to think about it. Someday they will come out with the large containers of the the chocolate yogurts and then we will give it a try again. I'm thinking freshly sliced bananas in each bowl first then topped with the chocolate concoction.
Okay some may be wondering why its "Frey's" salad instead of just Strawberry Yogurt salad....1 because we changed the name when we adapted the recipe and 2 because Frey is one of the main Norse fertility gods, and strawberries are considered an aphrodisiac.
