Strawberry-Honey Agua Fresca

While thumbing through a magazine the other day, I found a little note about Agua Fresca and how you could blend watermelon, cucumber, or cantaloupe with lime juice and a little sugar, then strain and serve over ice. That reminded me of an Agua Fresca recipe I made a few years back.

Fresh Strawberry Bread

Fresh strawberries are the best! And I love making things with them too, whether it’s a smoothie or a baked treat. Like this Fresh Strawberry Bread—it’s so good and moist, and has lots of little chopped strawberry chunks in it that give it a great strawberry flavor. This quick bread is great for a spring or summer breakfast or brunch, but it’s sweet enough that it can also work as a dessert, too—try it with a scoop of strawberry ice cream on top!

Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars

One of the things I like best about these Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars is that they are made with fresh strawberries instead of jam. I first made these a few months ago and loved the rich, buttery taste of these bars that are big on strawberry flavor! They’re a nice, simple dessert for spring and summer, either on their own or with a scoop of vanilla or strawberry ice cream added on top. You could even drizzle strawberry syrup over the ice cream if you want to get fancy! 🙂

The summery strawberries mixed with shredded zucchini and spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) make a really tasty combination! 🙂
