Wild berry, strawberry and lemon cake

Once again, super easy to make. It will not take more than 10 minutes to put together before placing in the oven. I am wanting to incorporate more fresh fruits into my baking and I thought this to be an easy way of doing it. With the summer just around the corner and with the warm weather, I always feel like eating more fruits. I hope you try this cake because for sure it isn’t going to disappoint.

  5. I have a whole bunch of fresh strawberries. Any tips on freezing them? Or could I use fresh berries?

  6. Steph,

    I don’t freeze strawberries anymore. I buy already frozen though. Unless they are in season I don’t bother with fresh, organic as well :-).

    You can perfectly use mix berries but use some ice to give that smoothie consistency!!

    the tags/picts don’t come of. For the smoothie pictures I just turned the bottle so the picture wouldn’t show :-) They are darling though, I think your son will like them and you as well :-)

  8. Your spinach and strawberry combo is new to me. Considering the nutritional value of its ingredients, I’m interested to know how it tastes. The color of the end product reminds me of an avocado shake.

  9. Joseph,

    it tastes really good. You won’t notice the spinach flavor at all :-)

  10. So I made a spinach smoothie although I didn’t follow this recipe exactly. I used raspberries and an orange and some vanilla. And the banana. It was definitely easier to eat spinach this way! I think I’ll start making them regularly and follow your recipe next time. Strawberry and banana is a much better combination than what I did. :)
