Very Berry Strawberry
The deep red color of strawberries can brighten up both the taste and aesthetics of any meal. Strawberries have higher levels of vitamin C, fiber, folate and potassium than most other fruits like bananas, apples and even oranges. Source:whfoods
Ever since Maheshwari announced "Strawberries" as the Fruit of the month, I've been trying various permutations and combinations with strawberries – jam, sauce, soup (yes, you read that right!), mocktails, shakes, sandwiches, cake…. Finally I decided to send in my entry for Strawberry Icecream. (Recipe source: Veena Kapoor)
