Food inspiration can come from a multitude of different things… and since it’s spring, fresh fruits will be sprouting up left and right. It’s time to think about some healthy spring snacks and treats. Where I live, strawberries will be ripe for picking in about one month.  Whether you get to go and pick them or buy them at your local market, strawberries are a delicious treat!  They are low in calories and fats but rich in nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.  Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C which is a powerful natural antioxidant.Chelsea Crockett - Chocolate Strawberry Truffle Cake

Therefore, let’s talk about some awesome snacks made with this yummy fruit!  A mom of one of my friends makes a delicious truffle filled with layers of chocolate cake, chocolate pudding/whip cream mixture, and sliced strawberries.  It’s to die for!  Sometimes she just buys a store bought cake and crumbles it up to form the layers.  It’s one of my favorites!

Another snack that I love with strawberries may sound a bit weird… but don’t judge me until you’ve tried it :)! You take fresh strawberries and dip them in a little sour cream and then brown sugar… it’s divine!  It sounds gross at first but the combination of those ingredients is absolutely delicious.  You should give it a try!

Share your favorite treats with me in the comments below. I’d love to hear some of your favorite berry recipes for spring!
