As we move fully into strawberry season, I wanted to take some time to collect some of my favourite healthy strawberry recipes from here at Occasionally Eggs and some of my favourite blogs. Although I love rhubarb in the spring, strawberries are the first hint of summer with their true sweetness.
They’re also a very easy plant to grow if you have a small space like a balcony or can hang a pot in a sunny window. We planted several between other plants this year, and they’re in with the lettuces, brassicas, and herbs. And if you’re not growing your own, look for the smallest, most jewel-toned berries you can find – they’ll be the sweetest.
Strawberries are a nice addition to anything to do with chocolate and lemon, but also pair nicely with some slightly more out-of-the-way spices like pink peppercorns and chili peppers. You’ll see all of that here – as well as ice cream, drinks, and a savoury recipe. I most love strawberries either alone or dipped in dark chocolate during their high season, but will add them to anything and everything while they’re here.
Enjoy these healthy strawberry recipes, and take advantage of them while they last! Out of season strawberries are sad small nuggets, not real berries at all.
