Though the season for strawberries starts in Spring here in the UK, July is still a great month to enjoy them! Not only are they tasty on their own, but they make a great addition to fruit salads, cakes, smoothies, and more. And you can’t get more British than strawberries and cream! Different varieties of this red berry can be found for sale, but the main one is Elsanta thanks to its flavour and quality.

Health benefits

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C. In fact, one serving (a cup or about eight strawberries) contains more vitamin C than your typical orange. They are also a good source of folate, potassium, dietary fibre, and manganese. All of these benefits and only about 45 calories!
