Strawberries are in season and they’re popping up all over the place like, well, strawberries! Whether you like them dipped in choccie sauce, smothered in cream, served with your fave brekkie cereal, in an antioxidant-packed smoothie, or as a decadent addition to divine kitchen creations, there’s no doubt these little heavenly red fruits carry a special charm.
Plus strawberries are packed with health benefits, so they are a nourishing snack any time of the day. They contain decent levels of vitamin C, an ideal immunity antioxidant and ideal for skin, manganese to keep the body functioning well, folate (vitamin B9) to support healthy tissue growth and cell function, and potassium for heart health.
