Add butter to make a mixture of cornmeal. Then mix the eggs, milk or cream to moisten and to get the shortened dough (crumbly or mealy dough). Put the dough with spoons, either in the baking tray to make biscuits, or in a cake pan to prepare the cake.

Bake at high temperature till the contents set. Split the shortcake and cover the bottom layer with whipped cream and the strawberry juice (made from sliced and vanilla flavored strawberries mixed with sugar and left for an hour). Replace the top layer and add more strawberries and whipped cream.

7. Strawberry Banana Protein Shake

To prepare healthy and nutritious shake does not mean putting into the blender the protein powder, milk, the strawberries and the bananas. Because the strawberries easily get contaminated and the choice of protein also makes the difference.

Take organic strawberries because otherwise, they may contain pesticides. Properly wash, clean and slice them. Take small pieces of bananas, juice or milk, whey protein, and ice.

The supplements like whey protein, milk protein (casein) and egg protein are all available commercially. But whey is the most effective protein to reduce body weight with the maximum fat loss.

Ice only makes the smooth shake without any calories and nutrients while the juice adds up more calories and vitamins.

Blend the above contents until the consistency is achieved.

11. Strawberry Jam

Take a non-reactive pot and mix the cleaned, halved or chopped strawberries (16 cups) and 2 cups of the organic sugar (2 cups). Leave the mixture at room temperature for about 15 to 30 minutes so that the sugar may drain out the liquid from the strawberries.

Thereafter cover the contents and refrigerate overnight for maceration or if in hurry, let it remain as such for an hour.

Remove the strawberries from the fridge. Add organic sugar (4 cups), powdered pectin (8 tbsp) and fresh lemon juice (1/2 cup), or some fruits (as per desire), to it.

Put the contents in a pan, stir continuously and boil over high heat for 20 minutes or till it becomes thick and consistent. The pan should be a large one, because during boiling the foam may come out of the pan.

Vigorously boil the jam till the bubbles look thick and syrupy or when a spoon is dipped in it and held high the contents do not fall like a liquid but trickle down like honey. If this happens, stop cooking and remove the pan from the heat and transfer the jam into the jars.

Cover the jars and process them in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes and then put them on a cloth for cooling, without touching each other.

During cooling, the jars will create a ping noise and the lids of the jars would be pulled down and become concave due to vacuum, thereby making the jars airtight.

Cool the jars for 24 hours. Hold each jar by the edge of the lid and lift an inch or two gently. If the lid holds fast, store the jam in cool dry place for a year, otherwise refrigerate it and use it within 10-15 days.

The lemonade is sweet and sour, as the lemonades generally are. In lemonade, the strawberry slices get pickled by lemon and sugar and mint provides extra flavor. It is very easy to prepare the strawberry mint lemonade.

Take fresh strawberries and some organic cane sugar or the maple syrup, which easily gets dissolved than the crystals of sugar. Honey as a sweetener has an assertive flavor, but the choice is entirely yours.

Preferably, extract the fresh lemon juice instead of bottled one, but again it is your choice

Mash the sliced strawberries with mint leaves, sugar and little lemon juice in a bowl.

Macerate the mixture for few hours and if possible overnight so that the sugar can drain out the juices from the strawberries. Now add the remaining lemon juice, cold water or ice cubes and sugar to taste and then serve.
