Cobb Salad Wraps – Smooth Strawberry Dessert
- 2 cups of fresh strawberries equals about 16 oz. of frozen strawberries.
- Do not wash fresh berries until you’re ready to use them.
- Thin canned chocolate frosting with a little milk and use it as a quick and easy dip for strawberries, bananas and other fruit.
- To save on sugar when making fruit crisps, pies or cobblers, try adding 1 tsp. baking soda and use half the amount of sugar. The chemical reaction of the baking soda keeps them just as sweet. Of course, you may have to adjust it depending on the sweetness of the fruit.
