Another sweet image of summer… sweet strawberries!
Can you say yum?
The best part about strawberries in the summer is the price, which makes them hard to resist. And why resist them anyway? They can be used in so many ways:
- with angel food or pound cake plus whipped cream
- in protein shakes (my fave)
- as a cereal topping
- stirred into Jello desserts
- as a decorative cake topping and in between cake layers
- and even by themselves
And who doesn’t love sweet strawberry pie?
I prefer to eat them after they are freshly washed and at the peak of their sweetness, without any sugar added. I have also been known to include sweet sliced strawberries in a salad and toss with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing… another yum!
