To get the strawberry extravaganza started we have a healthy recipe from Dashing Dish for Sugar Free Strawberry Lemonade! (Just click on the titles to see each of the recipes; images are from original posts)

Sugar Free Strawberry Lemonade – Serves 6

We are loving this low-calorie lemonade! It’s a great way to cool off and would make a pretty party drink.

What better food pairing for your strawberry lemonade than an Avocado, Strawberry, and Goat Cheese Sandwich? This amazing recipe comes from the blog Edible Perspective, and Ashley even includes directions for a hot or cold version!

After you’ve gobbled up your sandwich, pour another glass of lemonade and dig into some Fresh Strawberry Upside Down Cake! This recipe was shared by Cora on Trick’s Chefs and is pretty simple to make.

Easy Party Recipes: Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls!

This delicious and adorable peanut butter and jelly recipe comes from All Recipes, and takes a mere 5 minutes to whip up. It’s perfect for parties, or would even be cute for packing in your kid’s lunchbox!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi Rolls – Servings: 1


  • 2 Tbsp of your favorite peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp of your favorite jam, jelly, or preserves
  • 2 slices of bread (we love whole wheat or white-wheat for this recipe!)


  1. Remove the crusts from bread (save for breadcrumbs in another recipe). With a rolling pin or large soup can, completely flatten bread.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of fruit spread on each slice of bread.
  3. Roll each slice into a tight spiral. Cut each spiral into 4 pieces.

There are so many fun ways to change this recipe up. Some ideas include:

  • Swap peanut butter for almond butter or Nutella
  • Use sprinkles or granola to give the illusion of “roe” on top of the sushi
  • If using Nutella, swap fruit spread for coconut flakes, marshmallow spread, or thinly sliced bananas!

What would be your ideal sandwich sushi combo?
