5 Ways To Enjoy Strawberries

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.

 

Granita

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.

 Ice cream

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.

    1. Thank you Melanie 🍓
      The only granita I have ever had is when my daughter and I made it at home a few times. We got the recipe off the internet. It was time and labour intensive but we loved the result.
      It’s a good thing to try while stuck at home in the 3rd wave of Covid.
