This Fall, Sip on This
Yes, this lovely cocktail just happens to be in one of fall 2020’s most popular colours. But more than being totally stunning, it’s positively delectable.
California strawberries give this fizzy and refreshing drink it’s beautiful flushed shade. The good news? You can enjoy it all season long. While local strawberries are off-season, California strawberries are in peak season and readily available. You can find organic and conventionally-grown strawberries from the sunny state of California at your local grocery and natural products stores.
Get Creative With California Strawberries
When it comes to strawberry recipes, the sky’s the limit on what you can create. Whether you’re a seasoned baker or you’ve just recently discovered a passion for kitchen creativity, California strawberries are a must-have food accessory. They just bring that extra wow factor to make your foodie masterpieces pop. Most importantly, they’re bursting with sweet flavour!
It has to be said, they’re not just pretty. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love pretty food. But, at the end of the day it’s all about taste and value. Did you know that one serving of 8 California strawberries has the same amount of Vitamin C as an orange! I’m all about getting my daily dose of Vitamin C. Also to be noted, one serving is only 50 calories and strawberries are also a source of fibre. Which makes them a great choice for a healthy, balanced snack – or as a fabulously tasty accessory to any sweet or savoury recipe.
