To me, nothing says “summer” like fresh strawberries. When I was growing up, we had a small strawberry patch attached to the garden in my backyard. I remember my siblings and I impatiently waiting for the first bright red berries of the season to emerge. Sometimes we would convince our parents to let us dip them in chocolate or make strawberry shortcake, but usually, we just ate them straight from the garden. We’d have sticky chins and fingers, but hey, at least we were eating fruit! Rediscover that childhood summer favorite with these healthy strawberry recipes.
These recipes are just a few of my favorite strawberry recipes. This collection covers every meal from breakfast through dessert and everything in-between. Head over to your favorite farmer’s market or grocery store to pick up a pint of strawberries (or more!), because you’ll want to make all of these recipes ASAP.
