Very few fruits are as enjoyable to me as strawberries are. There’s something about the sweetness, the texture, the flavors – they’re like nature’s candy – they make me happy. In fact, as I started drafting this post I stopped to go grab a few. Just delicious. And so, since it’s strawberry season I decided to gather up a few favorite strawberry recipes to share with you all.
Let’s start with dessert! Helene has a delicious summer fruit tart that looks amazing. And very simple. Though there are three layers, it doesn’t seem that difficult at all. And it sounds really flavorful – with a vanilla pastry cream in the middle. Mmmmn.
And this no-bake skinny strawberry shortcake trifle from Nancy at SkinnyKitchen is the perfect skinny but sweet dessert. I’ve always been fascinated with trifles – this one is no exception. We’re big fans of Nancy’s recipes here at Midlife Boulevard.
And Susan’s strawberry pie makes me almost want to cry. Mostly because I want a slice of it right now. Don’t you?
Susan also has two strawberry recipes here on Midlife Boulevard – because one can never get enough of these delicious fruit. You can try the strawberry shortcake pinwheel or the strawberry cheesecake trifle. Strawberries and cheesecake? Sign me up!
Feel like adding strawberries to your greens? Recipe Renovator’s Strawberry and Asparagus Salad with Strawberry-Balsamic Vinaigrette is the perfect choice.
And if you’re looking for a different take on the trifle, we have a Red, White and Blue Trifle recipe here on the site that’s perfect for Memorial Day. Have a look …
