This week marks the first official week of summer and things are definitely starting to heat up here in Pennsylvania! Now that the kids are out of school we are splitting our time between being home in the cool AC and at the pool. My kids are also eating a ton more so I have been taking many trips to the grocery store and on my last one strawberries were buy one get one free, and while my kids all love eating the berries as is, the sheer number of berries we had made me curious on what else I could do with them! After some research I found some plenty of sweet recipes that I could make my berries the star of and cant’t wait to try them all. These 15 strawberry desserts perfect for summer are on my must make list, especially the ice box cakes! Ready to dive in?
When I think of summer desserts, I often think of lemon or blueberry, but not always strawberry- and I don’t know why! Strawberry is an awesome berry to use in cakes, muffins, cookies or bars. It has the perfect amount of sweet and tart and are usually pretty inexpensive to buy, especially in the summer. I did a whole round of of blueberry recipes last summer and knew I had to make a strawberry collection (now that I’m thinking of it, I think lemon will be my next round up!). These recipes I gathered include all sorts of delicious and pretty looking desserts that are seriously just perfect for a warm summer day.
