One of my favorite ways to fix them is to clean them, chunk them up, stir them about in a bit of sugar and then eat them! If I can get my mitts on some Angel Food cake, pound cake, or shortbread – all the better. But the strawberries alone make a fantastic dessert or snack. Oh, and homemade whipped cream will never go to waste in my house!
Looking at the recipes in my newest book, Gourmet Ice Pops for Kids and Adults, my love of strawberries is evident in the number of recipes that contain strawberries! Plenty of them, for sure. Here’s one from the Kid’s section of the book.
Strawberry Banana Pops
1 small package instant banana cream pudding mix
1 3/4 cups milk
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 tablespoon sugar
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into ice pop molds, add sticks, and freeze.
For anyone using the HCG diet or looking for low calorie and low fat treats, try this strawberry delight.
Strawberry Lemonade Pops (HCG)
2-3 strawberries, mashed
Lemon juice, from 1/2 lemon
8 ounces water
Stevia to taste
Mix all together, pour into ice pop molds or small paper cups, add sticks, and freeze.
This drink is 1/2 of a fruit serving on the HCG diet. This recipe can also be made using Lemon Drop flavored liquid Stevia as the sweetener.
However you like to eat them, it’s strawberry time and that’s a great food celebration!
