Growing up in California, there was always an abundance of the best, juiciest strawberries! They are hands-down my absolute favorite berry, full of sweet, juicy flavor and so versatile.
They go with pretty much everything, from desserts to savory dishes and smoothies. We eat strawberries almost every day.
Did you know that one serving of 8 large strawberries has a full day’s value of Vitamin C? Isn’t that amazing? Strawberries are also packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate and fiber.
We created three delicious recipes that are super simple to make and perfect for spring and summer. They’re great recipes that would be fun addition to a gathering, birthday party or just to make with your family. You can find all of the recipes on the California Strawberry website.

We dressed up our beloved strawberries into unicorns! These strawberry unicorns were so fun to make! They’re great for a birthday party or any unicorn-themed celebration.
