In May we spent a fun morning picking strawberries at Walnut Drive Gardens.  (Read more about it here).
We froze most of the berries and have been using them in our breakfast smoothies.  We’ve also tried (with great success) three new recipes I found via Pinterest.

Thought you might like to try them out!  For the recipes just click on the photos or source link to go to the original website.

This first one is similar to a lemon pound cake.  It is made with Greek yogurt and has a delicious lemon glaze.  I made it for my sister’s birthday and will definitely be making it again.


This next one is made with graham crackers and Cool Whip.  It’s no-bake, which is good news in my non-air conditioned house.  I omitted the chocolate on top but added a layer of vanilla pudding in the center and added fresh peaches to the strawberries.


I’m always looking for low fat ways to answer my sweet tooth cravings.  This strawberry sherbet recipe uses low fat milk, berries, sugar, and lemon juice.  I mixed everything in the blender (no lemon juice so used orange juice instead) and immediately threw it in the ice cream maker.  Twenty minutes later I was enjoying the cool treat.

We still have quite a few berries in the freezer.  If you have a great strawberry recipe, share it in the comments below or on our Facebook page.
