12 Delicious Strawberry Recipes
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.

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.

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.
