Nothing says summer quite like fresh, ripe strawberries. They’re a healthy fruit full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, plus, they are absolutely delicious! You can mix them into smoothies for a healthy breakfast and even make summer salads with them, but of course, nothing compares to a strawberry dessert. There are so many options for strawberry desserts, from elegant tarts made with roasted strawberries to simple strawberry milkshakes. Some of these dishes are best made with fresh strawberries, but many come together using frozen strawberries or freeze-dried strawberries — perfect if you don't have fresh strawberries on hand.

Whether you dip them in chocolate, bake them into a pie, or make them into a frozen treat, the whole crew is going to love these desserts. They’re the perfect summer dessert for a backyard BBQ, but you’ve been warned: the whole neighborhood is going to start angling for an invite once word gets out about these treats. And of course, you can always bring them to your Mother’s Day brunch or Father’s Day brunch, or any other celebration you have coming up.

There is no doubt that you will be making these strawberry desserts all summer long!
