Fresh Strawberry Recipes to Make All

There’s nothing that says summer like bright, delicious strawberries. I couldn’t be more excited for strawberry season and have been adding multiple pints to my cart every time I hit up Whole Foods. If you’ve ever wondered what to make with fresh strawberries, you’ve come to the right place.

Strawberries. In. EVERYTHING. They’re truly the best berries.

Most of these incredible strawberry recipes use fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries are amazing this time of year, too!

How to freeze fresh strawberries

If you have lots of extra strawberries, you can easily freeze them by rinsing, halving, and then freezing them for smoothies and even delicious desserts like these crumble bars.

Tips for using frozen strawberries in baking

If you plan to bake with the frozen strawberries, I recommend letting the strawberries thaw and draining off the liquid before adding them to your recipe. You can also toss them in a little flour before baking with them so that the color doesn’t dye your baked treat.

Scroll through and get ready to take some of these healthy strawberry recipes to your next summer party! Your friends will be swooning — promise. Bonus points if you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to any of the desserts. If you make any of these recipes, be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it.
