Did you know strawberries are a super fruit and can save your life?!

Eat up! They are low in sugar and have only 50 calories per serving (about 8 = 1 cup).

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, folate, fiber and potassium. Potassium helps control blood pressure and fight stroke. Fiber helps control weight and keep you “regular” and with all that vitamin C, they can help you out during cold and flu season.

They are better than botox! Research has shown that strawberries contain nutrients that help protect and repair cells and reduce damage that leads to aging.

They are everywhere!California strawberriesare grown year-round, you can find them fresh or frozen at your local grocery store whenever you want them.

Last but definitely not least, they are yummy! Who cares if a fruit is good for you if it isn’t delicious? In fact, strawberries are ranked #1 as kids’ favorite fruit and adults love them, too! They are versatile as an ingredient in salads, soups, sweet and savory dishes…you name it. And best of all, they are pretty super tasting all by themselves.

Son saludables! Son bajas en azúcar y sólo 50 calorías por porción (alrededor de 8 = 1 taza).

Las fresas están llenas de vitamina C, folato, fibra y potasio. El potasio ayuda a controlar la presión arterial y accidentes cerebrovasculares (infartos).

Son mejores que el botox! En investigaciónes ha demostrado que las fresas contienen nutrientes que ayudan a proteger y reparar las células y reducir los daños que provoca el envejecimiento.

Están por todas partes! Las Fresas de California se cultivan durante todo el año, se pueden encontrar frescas o congelados en el supermercado local en cualquier temporada.

    I LOVE strawberries, so I put slice them and mix with plain yoghurt for breakfast, will blend them into my flan recipe and top with sliced strawberries for a refreshing spring or summer flan, add them to a smoothie, or just eat them plain!

    We love gong to the farms close to LA to pick strawberries and eat them super fresh. We always pick way too many and end up using them in smoothies and for salads

    This looks wonderful. One question, is Silk Almond milk acceptable to use and Plain Greek yogurt in place of milk and plain yogurt.
    I look forward to trying this soon.

      Hi Jennie,
      I’ve never tried this recipe with almond milk. But I know that it can definitely substitute regular milk in baking recipes. Same with yogurt. I think the taste will be slightly different but still delicious. Let me know how they turn out. Can’t wait to hear. Thank you for stopping by!
