How Do You Eat Your Strawberries

Posted on 10th Jul 2015 @ 11:06 AM

Banana King has watched the growing seasons of fresh fruit and veg become longer and longer. This is great for all our customers as they can have fantastic fresh fruit baskets all years round.

So How Do You Eat Your Strawberries?

However, there is one thing that we have noticed, and that is many of us are still creatures of habit. As an example: during Wimbledon fortnight customers ordering one of the many options of fresh fruit baskets always want they to contain strawberries. And who can blame them, they are so sweet and succulent at this time of year.

We were curious, so we asked our staff “how do your eat your strawberries?”. The results were varied and some quite surprising, we’d like to share a few of them with you now; 

  1. Traditionally with cream, either pouring or whipped.wimbledon.jpg
  2. Simply sprinkle them with sugar and tuck in.
  3. A generous helping of ground black pepper was quite popular.
  4. In a smoothie or milkshake.
  5. As a topping on a grilled goats cheese baguette.
  6. With pancakes and syrup.
  7. Mashed with avocado to make Strawberry Guacamole.
  8. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
  9. Straight from the bush while being picked.
  10. As part of a fresh fruit salad.

Try Your Strawberries in New Ways

These were just some of the ways people like to enjoy their summer strawberries from Banana King. With the next fresh fruit basket, you order from your local fresh produce suppliers Banana King, why not try a few of these different ways yourself.

It is also the season for having friends round for a bar-b-que and a few drinks. You can make your barbeque that little bit different by ordering a special occasion fruit basket as a centrepiece that not only looks great but is healthy as well, and the kids just love the fact they can help themselves to all the goodies on offer.
