Who doesn’t love strawberries? This is the time when they’re in their sweetest and freshest bloom and we’re loving it. From cakes and cupcakes to pies and jams, we’re getting creative at the bakery and think you should enjoy the delicious fun too! So head to the store, pick up a some strawberries and let’s get snacking!
Start with slices. Want something super simple? These berries are great on their own. So simply slice those red beauties along with thin slices of cucumbers, drizzled with honey and garnished with chopped mint. Place in the freezer for a gentle freeze and take out after about 30 min. You'll have a wonderfully refreshing desert that's healthy too!
Dip and spread! Spread nutella on the strawberries and pop them into your mouth. Or, go a little further and place both the berries and nutella on a slice of toast! Great mid-day pick me up!
Sundae fun! Get out those delicious berries and dip them in some slightly softened chocolate ice cream! If you'd like to avoid the mess, just scoop some into a bowl, add the strawberries and some chopped nuts to the mix. That's an easy pleaser!
Rich and whipped. This is one of my favorites and a spin off of strawberry shortcake. Place some bananas in the freezer for about 20 minutes; just enough to chill them. Chop some strawberry chunks and add to the bananas- wither whole or sliced. Last, add whipped cream and indulge!!
Start fresh! Why not start your day with strawberries too? Just make some quick oats, rice farina or whatever grain based porridge you prefer. Chop cashews, hazelnuts and strawberries, drizzle some maple syrup and stir. Enjoy a tasty start to your day!
