Strawberries are, hands down, my most favorite fruit. I have always loved them and am fairly certain, I always will! 🙂
As a rule, I have never been a “cake” person, preferring instead fruit pies, shortcake, or biscuits. The lovely thing about strawberries, is that that little fruit goes great with all of the above mentioned desserts. As a young child, I would always ask for something with this little fruit for my birthday dessert. Add a huge dollop of whipped cream, and well, I was in heaven!
And with strawberry season just beginning to start, I thought I would share some strawberry recipes.
However, my most absolute, positively-favorite way to eat strawberries, is in strawberry soup! Smooth, cold, creamy, sweet…. and simply delightful!
2 cups vanilla yogurt/ or buttermilk
1/2 cup orange juice
2 pounds fresh strawberries, halved (8 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
Additional vanilla yogurt and fresh mint leaves, optional
In a blender, combine the yogurt, orange juice, strawberries and sugar in batches; cover and process until blended. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with additional yogurt and mint leaves if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
So enjoy spring’s most favorite fruit…I know I will!
