I looooove strawberries and always look for all the ways I can cram them into my mouth while the ripe, juicy local strawberries are in season.
Sadly, strawberry season is almost over, but it’s definitely not too late to make these incredible Healthy Strawberry Recipes. We’ve got strawberry breakfasts, strawberry desserts, strawberry jam, strawberry salads, and even a tutorial on how to freeze strawberries if you end up with a glut on hand.
So before the amazing juicy local strawberries are gone, be sure to grab a pint (or a pound?!) and make these healthy strawberry recipes.
1. Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
Made with a mixture of roasted strawberries, Greek yogurt, and just a tiny bit of honey, these Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles definitely belong on your list of healthy strawberry recipes.
2. Strawberry Rhubarb Kombucha
3. Balsamic Baked Strawberries
Baked Strawberries is a back pocket healthy strawberry recipe you should have especially if your strawbs are getting just a litttttle past their peak. Throw them in a casserole dish with a bit of olive oil, maple syrup, and balsamic, and you’ll end up with the most luxurious strawberry sauce you’ll ever know. And that Strawberry Yogurt Cake is damn delicious too, just so you know!
4. Freezing Strawberries
Fresh in-season strawbs are obviously the best, but there’s a certain magic in capturing that flavour to last you all year long. My friend Sarah from Sustainable Cooks has a handy tutorial on Freezing Strawberries that you should most definitely check out.

These Balsamic Strawberry and Watermelon Popsicles from Recipes From A Pantry are as delicious as they are beautiful. They’re vegan, gluten-free, and packed with fresh flavour. A perfect healthy strawberry recipe on a hot day if you ask me!
9. Strawberry Overnight Oats
Topping a big batch of overnight oats with fresh strawberries is one of my favourite make-ahead breakfasts. This is my basic Banana Overnight Oats Recipe with loads of juicy berries on top. It’s easy and delicious!
10. Strawberry Salsa
This Strawberry Salsa Recipe from Peas and Crayons makes me want to bust out the tortilla chips and dive face first into that bowl. It’s crazy good as an appetizer, or served with tacos. I love healthy strawberry recipes that are as versatile as this one!
