It’s finally strawberry season! Every year I wait anxiously for it and every year I spend some time pondering what to do with them all. Of course, there’s always the obvious – slice, sugar, eat. But usually I have a lot and I need to use them up, so I need a few more ideas.
I have a number of strawberry recipes already here at Food and Family. All of them are great and I’m sure I’ll be making a couple of them this season (I’ve put links to these recipes at the bottom of this post).
I’m always looking for more ideas though, so I thought I’d do a virtual tour of some of my favourite foodie spots and see what I can find.
Strawberry Daquiri – strawberries aren’t just for eating. You can drink them, too! And on a hot early summer day, you can’t go wrong with this strawberry, rum, ice daquiri.
Strawberry Mojito – another way to drink your strawberries!
Make a great dessert
Easy Strawberry Napoleons – use store-bought puff pastry and vanilla pudding mix, for an easy but impressive strawberry dessert.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart – Beautiful tart, with a crust, a cream cheese filling, fresh sliced strawberries and a chocolate ganache drizzle on top.
Strawberry Buttermilk Muffins – these sound like they’d be perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Strawberry Crumb Bars – Strawberries, baked on a short crust and topped with a sweet crumb. Yum.
Whole Grain Strawberry Crumble Bars – Looking to bake with a little whole grain? These bars certainly fit the bill and they look delicious!
Strawberry Sour Cream Scones with Brown Sugar Crumble – The classic scone dotted with fresh strawberries. How can that possibly be anything but great?
Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins – just like the favourite strawberry cheesecake, in muffin form.
Whole Wheat Strawberry Scones – beautiful, whole grain and fruit-studded. Can’t go wrong, here.
Strawberry Baked French Toast – perfect breakfast for this weekend!
Strawberry Cake – simple, classic and looks beautiful.
Strawberry Shortcake Cookies – sugar cookies, studded with ruby red strawberries.
Strawberry Buttermilk Sherbet – a nice change up from the classic strawberry ice cream. The buttermilk would add a lovely tang to this dessert and make it naturally low-fat.
Strawberry Sublime Popsicles – fresh strawberries, pureed with sugar and lemon juice and frozen for a fruity, frozen treat.
Strawberries and Cream Popsicles – fresh strawberries, mixed with cream, sugar and vanilla and frozen.
Frozen Yogurt Strawberry Pops – popsicle meets cake pop. Fresh strawberries on a stick and coated in yogurt and frozen. Fun!
