Old Fashioned Strawberry Jam

Nothing tastes better than homemade strawberry jam. It’s very easy to make and only requires 3 simple ingredients, you’ll never go back to store bought again.

No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake

Any dessert that doesn’t require baking gets a thumbs up from me. This one’s like a tiramisu without the coffee. It uses Graham crackers which aren’t available in Australia. Try replacing them with Milk Coffee or Lattice biscuits.

Easy Strawberry Cake

This cake looks so moist, I bet it would taste delicious warm topped with vanilla ice cream. Also included as recipe for strawberry drizzle sauce.

Goats Cheese & Strawberry Tarts

This recipe uses frozen puff pastry sheets which make it super simple for a non-baker like me to whip up something fairly fancy looking in a flash. I love the sweet/sour combination of the fruit with the balsamic vinegar and goats cheese. Something a bit different if you don’t really have a sweet tooth.

Mini Strawberry Tarte Tatins

Another recipe that looks super fancy but uses frozen puff pastry. These are made in muffin tins so they’re easy to make and serve as a dessert for several guests.

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie Bowl

No excuse for skipping breakfast when it looks as tasty as this smoothie bowl. Top with muesli, nuts or more fruit – whatever you have on hand is fine. If you freeze your strawberries and bananas first you’ll get a thick ice-cream like consistency that the kids will love. Tell them it’s an ice-cream sundae.

Strawberry Chips

I never thought of making strawberry chips, but what a great idea if you have too many strawberries to handle. Great to add to cereal, yoghurt or anything you fancy. Pulverize them in a blender and use it to decorate desserts or flavour biscuits.

Strawberry Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is so easy to make. Just mix your seeds with your favourite milk and they develop the consistency of rice pudding without any cooking. Layer with lots of pureed fruit and you have a delicious and healthy treat.

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Dust off the ice-cream maker (you know it’s in the back of the cupboard somewhere), it’s time to make some ice-cream. Make a batch of vanilla and choc too. Neapolitan for the Win! I bet the strawberry will be the first to go when it’s homemade.

Rocket & Strawberry Salad with Feta

Strawberries in a salad? Who would have thought! Fruit in salads isn’t new, I make salads featuring mango or orange all the time. Next on my fruity salad adventure will definitely be strawberries. Get some more salad recipe ideas here.

Strawberry & Yoghurt Popsicles

The kids will love making these fruit and yoghurt icy-poles. Keep the fruit chunky by mushing it up with a fork, or for a smoother texture, just puree with a stick blender. Any popsicle mould is suitable for this quick and healthy snack.

    The salad with strawberries and feta looks particularly good. And a 13th “recipe,” just eating a bowl of fresh strawberries as a snack on a hot afternoon! Oh, how fresh, ripe strawberries are SO good!

    • Cintia @ My Poppet says:

      We’ve been eating Strawberries non stop for the past few weeks. May as well enjoy them while we can. Once the season is finished they become ridiculously expensive again.

      I can’t wait to try the strawberry and fetta combination in a salad.

  • Lucy says:

    I would love to make fresh strawberry ice cream and strawberry and Banana smoothie bowl. I am a gardener and I have grown variety of strawberries in my garden. Eating my own made ice cream would be fun.
