What are the health benefits?

Strawberries are packed with immunity-boosting nutrients like vitamin C, manganese, and potassium. In fact, just one serving of 5 large strawberries or 8 medium-sized strawberries contains over 90% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, which is more than an orange! Additionally, strawberries contain many antioxidants that may improve heart health, lower blood sugar levels, and help prevent cancer. Despite being sweet, strawberries have a relatively low GI and should not cause big spikes in blood sugar levels.

Suggested use:

Eat as a standalone snack, add to smoothies, use as a topping on salad, yogurt, or oatmeal.
