Spring time is finally here! Flowers are blooming and temperatures are starting to warm up. Spring time in Florida means only one thing to us… Berry Season. Fresh berries are in season and one of our favorite family springtime activities is to go strawberry picking together as a family.
There is nothing like eating a strawberry right off the vine. It’s fresh and deliciously good. We did manage to bring home a bunch of strawberries despite how many we ate while picking.
With all these delicious berries hanging around, I decided to make a fresh fruit tart for dessert. Little Dude’s favorite things fresh fruit, granola, and whipped cream. I used granola for the crust to give my dessert a boost of nutrition and to feel a little less guilty for eating dessert.
