What's the absolute best part of summer? The warm sunshine? The super-cute sundresses? NOPE. It's the sweet strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries! They're all in season now, so it's time to check out a few recipes we can use to make the most of the best-ever berry season.
1. Berries & Cream French Toast Bake
This super-tasty French toast recipe features mixed berry goodness. Blueberries? Check! Strawberries? Check! Any other berry you'd like to add? Check!
2. Mini Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler
This recipe is fantastic because according to my own garden, rhubarb is also in season right now! I love mini desserts, to, so this recipe is an all-around win.
You don't have to be able to pronounce this to prepare it or eat it, even if you are cooking it with Wolfgang Puck. I know what you're thinking: where are the berries? Hang in there. You'll see.
4. Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl
Oh my gosh, I'd be happy with that smoothie on its own, without all the extra yummies. Who wants one of these for breakfast, raise your hand?
5. Blackberry Tequila Punch
You didn't think I'd make a list of recipes with berries and not include one for an adult drink, did you? This is a sweet treat, almost a boozy dessert type of thing.
6. Strawberry Lemonade Bars
This just sounds like summer to me! I'm making these to take to the next BBQ I'm invited to, and I'll make two trays, so there's plenty for everyone.
7. Slow Cooker Blueberry Cobbler
When it's just too hot to bake, why not use your slow cooker to make a sweet berry dessert? If you're worried about trying to cook 6 cups of blueberries in a small crock pot, don't fret: they'll cook down... into an ooey, gooey crock pot of berry yum.
Do you have any other summer berry recipes to share?
