It’s been rather cold around here the last few weeks and in much of the country, but luckily we can still get produce Fresh From Florida.

In Florida, February is actually strawberry season.  They even have their Florida Strawberry Festival in February and early March!  The great thing about strawberries, is they not only taste great but they are great for you!  They are a very wholesome food, rich in vitamins, which you can add to your diet and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Strawberries are also a very versatile food.  They are a perfect addition to your breakfast, whether eaten alone, on top of cereal, mixed with granola or yogurt, or as an ingredent for muffins.  They are also a great topping for a number of salads, and of course, the possibilties for strawberry desserts are endless!

Today I’ve got a wonderful recipe for you!  It’s a Florida Strawberry Parfait and it comes to us from our friends at Fresh From Florida.
