Fresh Strawberry Desserts

DID YOU KNOW?   – Once cup of strawberries offers 140 percent of the RDA of Vitamin C for adults and kids ages 5 and up.  Loaded with Vitamin C, strawberries are also a good source of potassium, manganese, and fiber.

Refreshing Strawberry Gelatin

This kid-friendly texture is a cross between jam and pudding.

Mix 3 cups strawberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a blender.  Strain the mixture and pour the liquids into a small saucepan (discard the solids).

In a bowl, pour 2 packets unflavored gelatin over 1 cup cold water and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.

Heat the strained liquid until it’s just starting to boil, then stir it into the gelatin mixture.  Pour the gelatin into an 8 by 8 inch glass pan and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Freeze 2 cups fresh strawberries.  Combine the berries with 6 ounces non-fat French vanilla yogurt in a food processor, then blend until smooth.  Serve immediately.
