Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier! The time I spend with my kids, and husband, enjoying the sunshine and outdoors, are the moments I cherish a lot.

20+ FAVORITE STRAWBERRY RECIPES
When I find something that I love I try to use it in as many ways as possible. I have created some amazing desserts, drinks, salads, and yes, even a butter recipe that has strawberries in it. It’s the number one favorite fruit of the entire Lofthouse crew, so we never tire of all the ways to enjoy them. I hope that you try many of these recipes so you’ll discover your favorites too! When you do, please share it! You can find me on Instagram @lifeinthelofthouse. Take a picture, or video, and make sure to tag me!
Strawberries go so well in salads. Don’t believe me? Then try my recipe for The Best Strawberry Chicken Salad. It will not disappoint! Mixed together with a grilled juicy chicken breast, crisp cut slices of apple, crunchy chopped walnuts, and chopped lettuce all tossed with poppyseed dressing. It is a lunch that pops. Not only is it fruity and flavorful, but it also can be made in less than 30 minutes.
I even have a couple of different pasta salads that combine cool al dente noodles with freshly sliced strawberries and spinach that are great to make for a picnic or backyard BBQ.
My Strawberry Poppyseed Dressing is out of this world! If you’re looking to turn a mundane salad into something that is bursting with fresh flavor, then make sure to give this one a try. I am telling you what, you could probably put this dressing on any salad, and it would make it that much better.
Have you ever heard the expression, “the sky is the limit”? That’s what you’ll find in this lineup of wonderful desserts. There is an abundance of delicious goodies that you can incorporate this fabulous fruit in. If you’re craving ice cream while you’re in the summer sun, make sure to freeze a batch of my Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. Again, don’t be intimidated because you don’t need a fancy ice cream machine. All you need is a freezer. Believe me, you’ll be wanting this all season long. I prefer mine in a waffle cone 😉
I also have many dessert recipes for cakes, cupcakes, cobbler, and trifle. You’ll never run out of sweet and delicious ways to use strawberries.
My Strawberry Cheese Danish might be one of the best things that you’ll ever pair with a cup of coffee. Even if you don’t drink coffee, this will still be one of the best ways to start your day.
If you are wanting a lighter way to start your day, then I recommend making my Strawberry Banana Smoothie. It’s so simple to make and will keep you satisfied and happy all morning long. Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to stay energized all the way through lunch.
My Strawberry Jell-o Pretzel Salad is unique and delicious. Although, if you’re from Utah you are likely aware of this wonderful treat. It’s the perfect balance of salty and sweet. Not only that, all of the textures that are in this dessert marry together so well. Serve this at your next summer BBQ and your guests will be asking for the recipe! 😊
