Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. My family also LOVES strawberries, so I decided to put together a list of my top favorite strawberry hacks. I am sure you are going to absolutely love them!
Super Creative Strawberry Hacks
How nutritious are strawberries? Very nutritious! They are packed with vitamins (lots of vitamin C), fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants. 1 medium strawberry contains about 4 calories. They are among the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity and are a good source of manganese and potassium.
From babies to adults, these strawberry hacks are perfect and super creative. Try them and see for yourself. Eating more strawberries has never been so easy and fun!
7 Genius Strawberry Hacks Everyone Should Try Right Now
1. Strawberry Roses
This is such a creative and healthy idea for any occasion. You can impress your guests at your next party, or simply make a fun snack for your family. You only need fresh strawberries, some sticks, and a small sharp knife.
2. Oven Dried Strawberries
Did you know that oven dried strawberries taste like candy? Yes! But they are naturally sweet, and healthy, and so good for you. Just cut your strawberries and place them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 210 degrees for about 3 hours.
3. Remove Strawberry Stems With A Straw
I always use this method. It is so easy, and the strawberry does not go to waste. Just use a straw and easily remove the stems. The strawberries will also be intact, the way my kids like them when they eat them as a snack.
4. Strawberry Ladybugs
Another creative and super fun way to serve your delicious strawberries. You need chocolate chips, blueberries or small purple grapes, tooth picks, and lettuce for decoration. They look adorable! Full details HERE.
5. Make your strawberries last longer
This is such an easy and good strawberry hack. Just put your strawberries in a mason jar and tightly close it. Store it in the fridge. A week later, they will still be fresh!
6. Strawberry Applesauce
I used to make this for my daughter when she started eating solids all the time! Regular applesauce is delicious but this is a great way to introduce new flavors and offer variety. You only need two ingredients and about 10 minutes. See recipe HERE.
7. Strawberry Santas
Last but not least, these strawberry Santas are just perfect for the holiday season. You can make your own whipped cream in minutes. This recipe is really out of this world and after trying my homemade whipped cream, you will never buy it at the store again! See recipe HERE.
