10 Ways to LOVE Strawberries

Oh sweet strawberries – how do I love thee? Let me count the ways… We all know I love strawberries for their health benefits. They’re one of the best sources of antioxidants and plant compounds that protect us from lots of bad stuff. But just between you and me, I also love them because the scream SUMMER, and they just taste so darn good. I’ll admit I used to be one of those people who only ate them for dessert. Usually in a strawberry rhubarb pie. Or just fresh strawberries with some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. But lately, I’ve been using them in all kinds of crazy ways. Sweet of course, but savory ways too. So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite creative strawberry recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers, in case you need help breaking out of the pie mold.

  1. I just love this idea for a round-up of healthy strawberry recipes. Too bad their season is so short. Pinning!

    • Anne says:

      Thanks for pinning Katie! I know what you mean about short season – and frozen strawberries just aren’t the same 🙁 – enjoy them while they’re here!

  2. I love strawberries and have a huge box in my house that I need to use up before they spoil. Thanks for the ideas!!

  3. Sarah Grace says:

    Mmmm, looks awesome, all of them! I love my strawberries plain and simple, or dipped in a yogurt dip 🙂 Ill eat a whole case if I don’t practice self control!
