Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d have heard by now that there’s been a strawberry crisis sweeping across Australia.
Indeed, it’s been a difficult period for Aussie strawberry farmers after it had emerged that six brands have been targeted and contaminated with sewing needles and pins, causing people to boycott the sweet red fruit.
Now there’s a push for people to show their solidarity by supporting the farmers through purchasing strawberries, although it’s been advised to be safe and cut them up into small pieces before consuming.
Did you buy a heap of strawberries to help support our farmers? Here are some awesome healthy strawberry recipes for you…
Here are 10 yummy and healthy strawberry recipes
1. Strawberry and apple crumble bites
When our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Suz Lee showed us her recipe for healthy strawberry and apple crumble bites we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Made with mini tortilla shells, they are perfect for a tasty handheld dessert, or even for taking on a picnic.
2. Strawberry and cream bites – just 50 calories!
Using fresh berries and a few pantry cupboard staples means you can enjoy these strawberries and cream bites anytime. PLUS they’re just 50 calories each!
3. Strawberry cheesecake bliss ball bites
These delicious strawberry cheesecake bliss ball bites will most definitely help if those sweet cravings hit.
The best bit about these little balls of yumminess is that they’re only 120 calories and can be found on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!
They’re rich, creamy and fresh, and would be a great combination with a cold summer drink.
4. Strawberry breakfast custard
If you love custard, you’ll love the recipes in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. Think baked honey custard, baked pear custard tart and no-egg chocolate custard.
5. Healthy strawberry and coconut ice-cream
There are no numbers, no artificial additives, no gums, no emulsifiers, no preservatives and minimal processing – unlike most store-bought brands.
Compare that to a store-bought ice cream which is packed with sugar and artificial flavouring. We think this is a winner.
6. Three ingredient strawberry-filled chocolate pots
Here’s another great member recipe that we are so excited to share with you. A big thank you to Keira Rizk for submitting her DELICIOUS Strawberry Filled Chocolate Pots recipe.
At just 35 calories each, these are a perfect sweet treat to enjoy for dessert as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
7. Strawberry walnut and yoghurt breakfast salad
For a sweet start to your day, this breakfast salad is tasty as well as healthy.
Sweetening your food with fruit and honey is a great option, instead of tucking into commercially prepared options which can be loaded with added sugar.
Prepare this the night before so that you can wake up and enjoy. Or why not enjoy it as a lunch option for something different?
This recipe comes from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, where we offer family-friendly recipes that will help you lose weight.

8. Banana and strawberry bread
This banana and strawberry bread is a great variation on the usual banana bread recipes and can be frozen in individual slices so you can defrost and add to your lunch box at work or grab at home for a healthy snack.
9. Chocolate cake with strawberry frosting
It’s a chocolate cake with NO added white sugar, with a sweet strawberry yoghurt icing. Perfect to enjoy while you lose pregnancy weight.
10. Add fresh strawberries to our delicious Healthy Mummy strawberry smoothie
There are so many tasty and healthy ingredients you can add to your daily Healthy Mummy strawberry smoothie, such as natural yoghurt, custard, banana, chia seeds or simply some fresh strawberries to give it an extra boost of flavour.
There is something traditional and old-fashioned about having a strawberry smoothie which we really love!
