Strawberries are the first fruits to arrive at roadside stands and in home gardens. These luscious juicy fruits can be used in desserts, salads, smoothies and much more. I just spent some time in Lancaster County, a place well known for produce farms. Just look at these luscious strawberries I picked in a pick-ur-own patch. These berries are huge as you can see by the one I am holding in my hand.
This variety is called Valley Sunset and is the first time I heard of this kind. I had to taste a few so see if they were as sweet and flavorful as they looked. They were!
I have gathered up a round-up of strawberry recipes that I have on my blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family does.

Angel Food Strawberry Dessert THM S with FP option
Who is anxious for luscious, juicy, sun-kissed strawberries? I, know I am. Quart boxes piled full of berries in rows at roadside produce stands signal that summer has arrived in all it splendor. This cake tastes just like my Grandma’s Angel Food cake many years ago. The cake layer is a FP and can also be topped with a fat-free Greek Yogurt filling for a FP Dessert. The recipe as a THM S and has the FP option listed, also. This is a winner with our family.
Hot Milk Shortcake THM S
Shortcake has always been a treat to serve with strawberries. This simple hot milk cake is easy to make and tastes so good with fresh berries. I will at times bake it in small single serving dishes. It looks so elegant served with berries, cream and a sprinkle of THM Gentle Sweet.

If you need a special dessert for your family, I have just the one for you! This Strawberry Cake is such a delicious treat that is not only a feast for the taste buds but also for the eyes. Layer fresh cut strawberries in the filling for an extra strawberry taste.
Triple Berry Jam THM FP
Triple Berry Jam has become my favorite. I will eat it over ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese , and I must admit even right from the jar for dessert. You also can you all strawberries if you prefer. That option is listed in the recipe.
Strawberry Angel Food Cake THM S, Keto
I always loved to bake Angel Food Cakes and this recipe was the first cake I made sugar and gluten free. This cake makes an impressive dessert when you add fresh berries and cream cheese filling. It would be embarrassing to tell you how quickly this platter was emptied at my house. My family loves it!!
Strawberry Pie THM S
Nothing says summer like a freshly picked, sun-kissed strawberry. As a young teen I spent many hours picking strawberries for produce stand. Strawberries are the first berries to ripen followed by raspberries a few week later. This strawberry pie is a makeover of an old family favorite. It pie never last long at our house and I am sure it won’t at yours either. My regular recipe asked for strawberry jello but I have substituted Strawberry Kool Aid and unflavored gelatin to be able to make it sugar-free.
Strawberry Cream THM FP
This dessert is refreshing on warm, summer days and best of all it is a Fuel Pull. Using frozen berries thickens the dessert almost immediately after blending in soften gelatin. I am enjoying more FP desserts to balance out those meals when I just need a bit more protein and something sweet.
Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding THM S
One of the earliest old-time garden favorite to be picked is tangy rhubarb. There are different varieties of rhubarb but I prefer the Crimson Red or Canada Red plants. In this recipe rhubarb is combined with strawberries into a creamy “tapioca style” THM S dessert. Chia seeds and strawberry jello thicken this dessert.
Strawberry Protein Bars THM FP
Protein Bars! Have you ever wished you could buy a protein bar that didn’t have sugar in it? Did you know you can make these easily at home? I love to have protein bars on hand for when I have to be away from home for a few hours or traveling. Here is a Strawberry Protein bar that is sugar free and full of healthy goodness.
Creamy Fruit Dip THM FP
Sweet creamy dip with fresh fruit is a favorite at picnics and potlucks and bananas cut to look like dolphins make this extra special for children. This creamy dip is a FP and can be served with any type of fruit. Bananas, apples, and grapes are THM E and berries are a Fuel Pull.

White Cake with Strawberry Cream Filling THM S
Everyone loves to celebrate special occasions with beautiful decorated cakes. But so often those cakes are ladened with so much sugar and carbs. This cake used white navy beans as the base for the batter and is filled with Strawberry Cream Filling and frosted with Cream Cheese Frosting. It takes those special occasions to a new level. Don’t forget the Cake Batter Flavoring as it adds that a flavor that low-carb, sugar-free baked items are often lacking.
The Perfect Cheesecake THM S
Cheesecakes have always been a favorite dessert of mine to make for special occasion. They are one of the easiest dessert to make sugar-free and low-carb and they taste just like the sugar-laden ones do. When I take a cheesecake to carry-in dinners I always come home with an empty plate. Separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites stiff give a wonderful light texture. You can also bake this cheesecake in a 9 x 13 pan if your prefer is you do not have a springform pan. Sometimes I omit the sour cream topping and just serve it with whipped cream and fresh berries.
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt and Sorbet THM FP
Warm summer weather calls for cold, creamy ice cream. Here are two recipes for frozen yogurt and sorbet that are delicious for the hot muggy days. Best of all, they are THM FP.
Strawberry Lime Smoothie THM FP
Smoothie are a refreshing summer treat. This one combines Strawberries and limes with THM Baobab powder and THM Whey Protein Powder for an energizing smoothie. I will use this as a meal replacement when I am busy or need to be on the road for a number of hours. My children love smoothies and for convenience the dry ingredients can be measured into small jars or plastic containers. All you need to do is blend strawberries, lime juice, almond milk, and a container of dry ingredients and you are all set to go.
