6 Healthy Strawberry Dessert Recipes
Berry, Berry Good
Strawberries taste deliciously indulgent fresh off the vine, but they're even better as part of your favorite dessert. They add a natural sweetness, as well as a healthy dose of nutrients. In fact, just one cup of this superfruit contains more vitamin C than oranges, and plenty of folate and heart-healthy compounds.
These recipes, from Mini Strawberry Shortcakes to Strawberry Crumble, are a tasty way to get started.
Prep like a pro
Hold the berry by the bottom. In the other hand, grasp a sharp paring knife so that about 1/2 inch of the blade extends past the ends of your thumb (don't touch the edge).
Insert the tip of the knife into the top of the berry at a 45 degree angle. Twist the berry and the knife in opposite directions, cutting all the way around the stem.
Pull out the stem and the core; discard.
