5 Strawberry Recipes to Kick off a Healthy New Year

Looking to kick off the new year with small, healthy changes? It's as easy as reaching for fresh strawberries from Florida! And today we're rounding up our favorite sweet and savory strawberry recipes to inspire vibrant, flavor-packed meals.

This post is written in partnership with Florida Strawberry Growers Association.

Happy New Year! We're not sure about you, but this year our team is excited to make small, healthy changes to feel more energetic during the work week. First goal: eat more color!

And that's why we're excited about Florida strawberries: they're in season through Easter (when a lot of other US strawberry growers are dormant), and are great in sweet and savory recipes alike!

So without further ado, we bring you a few of our favorite salads, a juicy cocktail, and a sweet treat featuring the fruit of the moment!

    A fruity twist on the classic, this juicy Strawberry Moscow Mule is mixed with vodka (although use tequila if you'd like) and a spicy ginger beer. We love the pale pink color and ease with which these come together.

  • Strawberry Mousse with White Chocolate

    With just six ingredients, this smooth and creamy Strawberry Mousse couldn't be easier to make. Extra bonus? It holds up well in the refrigerator, so it's a great make-ahead dessert! May we suggest doubling the batch if you're having guests? It's often the star of the show.
