1. Strawberry Banana Paleo Breakfast Bars
Breakfast bars are a huge help in my house. I’m a morning person, but that doesn’t mean I want to spend the first hour and a half of my day making and cleaning up a full meal. So ideas like these strawberry banana breakfast bars are perfect! Chewy and nutritious.
2. Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream
There are so many ways to make ice cream, and this is just one. It’s a simple recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker, and is practically instant! I highly recommend adding the optional vanilla. You can use maple or honey in place fo the rice malt syrup.
3. Super Paleo Strawberry Jam
I love chia jam just as much as the next person, but this is the real deal, folks. This is a cooked strawberry jam that uses pectin to thicken it, along with apple peels, which have naturally-occurring pectin. There’s no added sweetener in this jam, just pure strawberry goodness!
4. Purple Carrot, Strawberry, Watermelon, and Lime Smoothie
This smoothie is rich in healthy ingredients, including flavorful fruits and vitamin-rich carrots. You’ll also add coconut shreds, cashews, lime, mint, and a plant milk of your choice. I’d recommend using almond, as coconut milk might be too rich for this smoothie.
5. Paleo Strawberry Shortcake
These strawberry shortcakes are perfectly paleo with a base made from eggs, maple syrup, coconut flour, and full fat coconut milk. Top them with whipped coconut cream and fresh strawberries, along with an extra drizzle of maple syrup if you’re feeling fancy.
6. Grain Free Strawberry Coffee Cake
Coffee cake is best eaten crumbled into a pile on your plate because you took it out of the dish before letting it cool all the way. Because you just couldn’t wait long enough. That’s not just me, right? Check out this coffee cake recipe and you’ll be doing the same thing.
7. Strawberry Banana Bread
I love the flavor combination of strawberry and banana, and I love bread (who doesn’t? Don’t you miss bread?) so this recipe is right up my alley. But it’s healthy, with coconut flour, coconut oil, almond meal, ground cinnamon, vanilla,a nd just a touch of maple syrup.
8. Strawberry Lemonade Fruit Roll-Ups
Kids loves fruit roll ups, and so do grown-up kids. They’re sweet, fruity, chewy, and portable! All the best things. These strawberry lemonade roll-ups are easy to make in an oven or food dehydrator, or on a cookie sheet on your dashboard if you live in a hot, dry climate!
9. Strawberry Peach Crisp With Hazelnut Pepita Crumble
Strawberries make an excellent fruit for crisps and crumbles, especially when you combine them with other fruits like peaches. Yummy! You’ll just need peaches and strawberries, tapioca flour, maple syrup, almond and hazelnut flours, pepitaas, butter or ghee, and spices.
10. Banana Split Vegan Smoothie Bowl
This smoothie bowl tastes just like a banana split, from the frozen banana creamy base to the strawberries, roasted nuts (the recipe calls for peanuts, but use whatever you like best), chocolate, and some paleo-friendly sprinkles if you can find them.
11. White Balsamic Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream
This is the creamiest, dreamiest, strawberriest ice cream you’ll ever taste. It’s made with a base of raw cashews so it won’t have a coconut milk flavor, and you can use palm sugar instead of cane sugar to sweeten. The secret is the white balsamic vinegar, vanilla, and sea salt.
12. Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding With Strawberry and Fig
This chia pudding makes the perfect breakfast with just a touch of honey to sweeten in. It has a lovely vanilla flavor and is made by layering the chia pudding with a strawberry and fig puree. I’d dare to top mine with a few stray chocolate chips—what about you?
13. Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Sweetened with dates and orange juice, creamy with almond milk, and hinted with cinnamon and vanilla, this sweet smoothie is a much healthier version of the treats you can buy at mall food courts or fast food drive-thrus. And it tastes better, too!
14. Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles
Ah, balsamic vinegar strikes again in these simple popsicles made with just strawberries and a little honey (maple syrup would work, too). If you haven’t tried balsamic vinegar with fruit, take these recipes as a hint that it’s time to give the combo a try.
15. Strawberry Basil Jello
This easy gelatin treat is great for your hair, skin, nails, and healing your digestive tract. Use grass-fed gelatin for the best benefits! You’ll also need strawberries, fresh basil leaves, raw honey, and a little coconut cream to add healthy fat. You could eat this for breakfast or dessert.
16. Strawberry Basil Italian Lemonade
San Pellegrino is one of my special tricks to making a dinner meal a little more special. We’re always doing homemade Italian sodas just made with fruit puree instead of a sugar syrup. This similar idea is for strawberry lemonade with basil leaves, too.
17. Sugar Free Strawberry Watermelon Agua Fresca
Strawberry and watermelon love each other, and they especially love to be made into cool drinks for hot days. This one is great for a summer afternoon and just requires watermelon, strawberries, lime juice, apple cider, and cucumbers and mint leaves for serving.
18. Sugar Free Strawberry Chia Jam
Some chia jams use sweeteners, but it isn’t really necessary. try this one with fresh ripe strawberries, lemon juice, chia seeds, and a hint of stevia if you feel like it needs it. Using white chia seeds makes the jam prettier, but they can be harder to find—black ones work just the same.
19. Balsamic Chicken and Strawberry Skewers
These are happening for dinner this week in my house. I just can’t do without them. Sweet strawberries, tangy balsamic, peppery chicken?! Where have you been all my life, balsamic chicken and strawberry skewers? These a super kid-friendly, too, and grilled berries are so perfect.

I’m a fruit salsa lover, and I don’t even care what you dip in this strawberry salsa—it’s fantastic enough to just each straight off a spoon with the fresh, ripe strawberries, red onion, cilantro, parsley, basil, mint, ginger, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and sea salt.

A good cupcake will take you a long way, and this strawberry vanilla cupcake is perfect with ground almonds, eggs, coconut sugar, coconut oil, fresh strawberries, and a lemon cashew frosting sweetened with coconut nectar or maple syrup.
24. Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Jam
This chia jam tastes just like strawberry rhubarb pie, with a bit of sweetness, a bit of tanginess, and hints of vanilla. You’ll want to sweeten it a bit with some maple syrup since rhubarb can be quite tart even if your strawberries are extra sweet—this works best with fresh, ripe strawberries, but frozen works in a pinch.
25. Strawberry Broccoli Salad
It doesn’t have to be all salsas and sweets for strawberries. You can have them savory-style too, like in this broccoli salad with slices strawberries, red onion, almonds, lemon juice, raw honey, poppy seeds, and homemade mayonnaise for a creamy dressing.

29. Strawberry Hazelnut Crisp
Hazelnuts are such a lovely nut, with the best of flavors—why do you think Nutella is so good? This strawberry crisp uses hazelnuts on top, and you can replace the sucanat with coconut sugar. Lemon zest, vanilla, and coconut oil create awesome flavors and a crumbly texture.

37. Strawberries and Cream Popsicles
Who doesn’t love a good popsicle? Strawberries and cream is a flavor that both kdis and adults alike can enjoy, and these simple popsicles are the ticket. They’re made with full-fat coconut milk, which makes the creamiest popsicle you’ve ever had. Collagen adds nutrients, too!
