Healthy ways to eat strawberries

Strawberries are often called “the taste of spring,” because they are traditionally the first fruits of the season to ripen. However, if you can’t seem find the perfect, most ripe bunch at your grocery store, you can use one of these recipes to help bolster their flavor and sweetness.


Layer plain or vanilla yogurt with granola and strawberries for a yummy breakfast. Add them to muffins, waffles and pancakes.

Grilled strawberry dessert

For a fresh-tasting dessert, thread strawberry halves on a skewer and grill until just heated through. Serve with ice cream or frozen yogurt.


Fresh berries are a refreshing addition to summertime drinks. If you're partial to a slushy, then this frozen strawberry daiquiri, with a generous glug of rum, makes for the ultimate summer party thirst quencher. Add fruit purée to gin or vodka, then top up with soda, or have a go at making your own infused spirit with this rhubarb & strawberry vodka.

Breakfast cereal

Add chopped strawberries and nuts to cooked quinoa for a tasty breakfast; add a touch of maple syrup if you like.

Chocolate Smoothie

Add 2–4 fresh or frozen strawberries and a scoop of your favorite chocolate protein powder to transform a smoothie into a decadent “chocolate-dipped strawberry” concoction. 

Strawberry Butter

Mix 1/4 cup chopped strawberries, a stick of unsalted butter and your favorite sweetener (to taste) to create a luxurious topping for waffles, pancakes and toast.

Fresh and fruity salad

Throw a handful of strawberries and almonds on leafy greens, and top with a fruity dressing. Or substitute strawberries for tomatoes in a Capers salad made with fresh mozzarella and basil. To intensify the flavor of strawberries, add ground black pepper.
