Nothing says Spring better than strawberries. Luscious in colour and flavour, there are so many ways that you can enjoy this fruit. Today I ask you to list five. I have tried to combine several options under one heading but still have quite a few favourites left over.
This distinctive dessert takes sorbet to the next level. I make it by hand and it takes a lot of time and effort but the result is well worth it.
Fruit Yoghurt and Granola
For those who cannot ,manage the tartness, strawberry yoghurt is a lovely way to enjoy strawberries . My current fave is granola layered with Greek yoghurt and macerated, sweetened strawberries. I serve it in little glass tumblers so it looks pretty too.
Smoothies and Chillers
A lazy spring evening in the garden spent alone with a book or nattering with friends, both are settings for strawberry based drinks. Give the semi frozen fruit a whizz in the blender, add soda or milk or yoghurt and enjoy.
Vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries or strawberry ice cream with bits of real fruit — there are many more heavenly combos.
Tarts , Flans and Cakes
All through spring and early summer, tea time confections made with strawberries are sooo tempting.
