When you’re looking for an alternative to a pink food color for a cake or cupcakes, check out Strawberry Puree. It’s made from pure strawberries and it makes a lovely pink cake color. It’s perfect for any dessert that needs a little hint color and obviously a mild strawberry flavor. I made it specifically for a recipe that I’m publishing soon.
YES! You can even use frozen strawberries in this recipe. You can absolutely use the puree for a yogurt topping or in margaritas or just eat it with a spoon when no one is looking. That last one is my favorite form of enjoying treats!
So ridiculously easy.
Strawberry Puree is made from pure strawberries and that’s it. I hesitated to even write it up but I realized that adding two recipes to a blog post is in bad form so here’s this little piece first and then check how I used it later. Everything in blogger land says don’t post two recipes in one post and now that I’ve started following those simple rules, here I am.
Use fresh OR frozen strawberries in this recipe, you can’t go wrong with either one. In fact, I’d use frozen berries here just because fresh berries in Alaska are expensive. And seasonal. Seasonal for everyone else that is. We get them from about April to maybe mid-summer for a decent price. After that we’re out of luck, they’re all imported or priced so high we can’t afford them. Or better yet (not really BOTH). So in writing this post I’ve come to the conclusion that frozen berries are where it’s at. Save your fresh berries for snacking or lunches!
