Strawberry season is here, Shopkickers! We love strawberry season because the fruit is synonymous with spring and summer and plenty of delicious recipes. We also always try to make a point to visit a pick-your-own farm in our local area. Walking through a strawberry field, picking strawberries, and filling a tub or box is a wonderful way to remember memories made during past years while also creating new ones with your family.
As much as we enjoy eating fresh strawberries as they are, we also look forward to incorporating them into new recipes. Below, we’re sharing seven recipes, from water to dessert that will leave you feeling encouraged to add strawberries to as many meals as possible.
Strawberry Infused Water:
If you’re trying to feel encouraged to drink more water, try adding fruit! The fresh, cool taste is invigorating, and it adds just the right amount of flavor to keep water refreshing while also making it feel like a unique drink. This recipe from Wholefully will allow you to create a strawberry infused water with lime and mint.
Strawberry Banana Bread:
Over the past few weeks, you have likely baked at least one loaf of banana bread (we recommend this recipe if you haven’t given it a try yet). Now, mix up your banana bread recipe by adding strawberries! The Recipe Critic has one with great reviews we can’t wait to try.
Spinach Strawberry Salad:
Salads and summertime go hand-in-hand, and this salad by Well Plated mixes together strawberries, spinach, feta cheese, and toasted pecans. The salad is topped with balsamic poppy seed dressing, and we think it’s safe to say we just found our new go-to lunch for the season.
Strawberry Mango Salsa:
Have you ever tried salsa with fruit? It’s delicious, and it’s a total game changer! Damn Delicious shared a recipe for strawberry mango salsa that’s quick and easy to make. Just add chips!
Balsamic Strawberry Pizza:
We had not yet thought to top pizza with strawberries, but now we can’t wait to give this Balsamic Strawberry Pizza from Seeded at the Table a try! The flavors come together thanks to strawberry jam, chili sauce, balsamic vinegar, fresh strawberries, chicken, and more. This would be a fun new take on Friday pizza night!
Gimme Some Over has reinvented caprese with this Strawberry-Balsamic Chicken recipe! Chicken, mozzarella, basil, salt and pepper, and balsamic vinegar are the only ingredients you will need, and the recipe looks delicious for dinner and even lunch.
We have to end with a classic – Strawberry Shortcake! Cake, whipped cream, and strawberries are all included in this classic dessert, and you cannot go wrong with this recipe from The Food Network. Consider baking this for July 4!
