Strawberry Butter Horizontal 2

The bounty of fresh fruit has to be one of my favorite things about summer. There’s nothing better than a juicy peach, a heaping handful of blueberries, or, in this case, sweet and tangy strawberries. This simple Strawberry Butter comes together in just minutes and perfectly captures the sweetness of summertime. Whether you’re spreading it on toast, English muffins, or pancakes, this treat is sure to become a family favorite.

To start, you’ll need a cup of salted butter at room temperature. Whip the butter for 2-3 minutes until it’s light and airy, this helps it absorb the berry flavor and maintain a smooth and spreadable consistency. Next, mash the strawberries until they are nearly pureed. This can also be done in a food processor with a couple quick pulses, just make sure you don’t overdo it!

Add the strawberries to the whipped butter with a little powdered sugar and give it all a good mix. Once it’s nice and smooth, transfer it to a mason jar or airtight container and pop it in the fridge to let those flavors meld– I recommend waiting about one day for a stronger strawberry flavor. Enjoy it as a breakfast treat or midday pick-me-up, any way you serve it, it’s bound to be a hit!
