[A] member of the rose family, high in vitamin C, and the only fruit with seeds on the outside, strawberries are a harbinger of spring. They’re the first fruit to ripen and May is National Strawberry Month in the United States. We’ve collected some of our favorite strawberry-forward products to inspire ideas for expanding your offerings, and to add a little spring to your step.

Strawberries Freeze-Dried Forever
Crunchies freeze-dried strawberries are a tasty snack on their own, and a fun way to add some crunch to your five-a-day. These berry bursts are excellent in smoothies or as a healthy topping for ice cream, oatmeal, or chia seed pudding. Crunchies works directly with farmers, providing consumers with fruit that has been harvested fresh, cleaned, then quickly frozen.

Frosé All Day
Monin’s new fruit purees have concentrated and consistent flavors, making them easy to use in multiple ways. Strawberry puree is a key ingredient in frosé—last summer’s favorite boozy frozen treat—and also works as a flavor addition to yogurt, cocktails, and teas. It can even be used as a donut filling!
