Strawberry Shortcake Muddy Buddies (Puppy Chow)

We’re full on celebrating the start of summer here at Nature Restore – and what says summer more than anything else? Strawberries!

Strawberries are full of sunshine, sweet, juicy, and packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. That’s why we developed our Organic Strawberry Freeze-Dried Powder – to capture all of this goodness and keep it locked in. Every time you use our strawberry powder in smoothies, juices, or baking, you’re getting a hit of summer berry goodness.

And that’s exactly what Karlee Flores from @oliveandartisan has done with another incredible recipe – this time Strawberry Shortcake Muddy Buddies. This easy peasy dessert tastes amazing and won’t leave you feeling guilty like some indulgent desserts do.

Here’s how to channel your inner Karlee and make this puppy chow…
