They’re full of potassium, anti-oxidants, and can even help relieve allergy symptoms. While it’s easy enough to toss some strawberries into a refreshing smoothie, or atop your morning breakfast, you gotta love a good dessert. Here are some tempting strawberry desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth and do some good stuff for your body too.
These blondies are to die for. They’re just the right combination and dense and moist, and the sweet brightness of the strawberries plays very nicely against that subtle hint of tart from the lemon. Plus, the glaze that finishes the dessert takes things into a whole other level of yum. You can get the recipe over at The View From Great Island.
You gotta love old, time-tested recipes. And as far as strawberry desserts go, it’s hard to beat a simple slice of pie.

But, stick with fresh strawberries, if you can, for the filling. It makes a world of difference. Get the recipe over at Just So Tasty.
