Other Great Strawberry Desserts to Try

After giving this strawberry bread pudding a shot, try out some other strawberry desserts! Fresh strawberries are readily available in the summer, making that season a great one for any kind of strawberry dessert. Strawberry pie is an obvious one. This pie flavor doesn't get as much appreciation as apple or peach, but we think it should! Serve with some cool whip or vanilla ice cream.

Speaking of ice cream, why not try to make your own strawberry ice cream? Making ice cream is fairly easy these days. Have your kids give you a hand; it's a great opportunity to teach them how ice cream is made! Eat your ice cream on its own, or serve it over a brownie or pie.

If you're watching your diet, strawberry oatmeal bars are a great choice. These bars won't be as high in fat as some of these other desserts. As a bonus, they can work as either a breakfast food or as a dessert! That flexibility will help save you time and effort in the kitchen. Plus, they're packed with fiber to help keep your digestive system on track.
