Everything Strawberry!

 

This time of year, I make my yearly trip to our local strawberry patch. I love this place, it’s so relaxing to bask in the sun and leisurely pick berries. It’s mental therapy for me, what can I say. It doesn’t get any better than to end the pickling experience with a strawberry slushy too!

Here are just a few things I made with my baskets of berries. I love to make homemade frozen yogurt and strawberry Ice tea. I could make everything strawberry for a whole month if my family would let me!

If you have an ice cream maker, this recipe is so easy, you can whip it up in a few hours!

 

Strawberry frozen yogurt

32 oz. vanilla flavored Greek yogurt

1 cupcake heavy cream

½ cup of sugar (or you can do honey, I have done that before and it’s great!)

2 cups of puréed strawberries

1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients, cover and chill 1 hour before you freeze in your ice cream maker.

Strawberry ice tea

1 cup pureed fresh strawberries, with a little honey added if needed to boost the sweetness ( I added 1 tbsp. to mine)

Half gallon of unsweetened, or slightly sweetened ice tea of choice. I love Tazo passion ice tea.

Lots of ice

Combine and enjoy!
