RECIPES: Strawberry Lemonade for One, Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, Strawberry Pie

By Rae Udy

There is a war going on in my strawberry patch, and I am losing every battle. The enemy is not the typical garden pest but a squirrel who loves strawberries, and he isn’t alone.
Strawberries are the most popular type of berry in the world, according to the World’s Healthiest Foods website. There are more than 600 varieties of strawberry and they all differ in flavor, size and texture but they are all nutritious and delicious.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and provide 140 percent of your daily requirement in one 50 calorie cup. They are a very good source of dietary fiber with almost four grams per serving and are also a good source of manganese, potassium and B vitamins.
Strawberries are potent antioxidants and help protect cell structure damage and prevent oxygen damage in the organs. The unique phenol content in strawberries can lessen inflammation associated with arthritis, asthma, heart problems and cancer.
These berries are very perishable, and should not be washed until right before eating or using in a recipe. Do not remove their caps and stems until after you have gently washed the berries in cold water and patted them dry. This will prevent them from absorbing excess water and making them soggy. Remove the stems, caps and white hull with a paring knife.
What is more refreshing than lemonade on a hot day? Strawberry Lemonade For One blends up a tasty beverage for summer that sweetly quenches the thirst.
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are fun to make and more fun to eat. Remember strawberries are low in calories and fat so you can indulge.
Strawberry Pie is my version of JB’S Big Boys Restaurant great dessert. One giant slice contains 233 calories and five grams of fat and 88 percent of your daily value of vitamin C.
