Easy Recipe to Use Up Your Strawberries
My kids love strawberries. So much that even though they aren’t in season at all right now, my mom has been really nice and has been buying them at Costco for my girls as a treat. We have been growing strawberries in my garden for the last 3 years. And since I have rearranged my garden 3 times, my strawberry plants have been transplanted 3 times. I wasn’t sure how they would do this year after the third transplant, but they actually did better than ever! My girls (and the neighborhood kids) were picking strawberries well into October.
When you have oodles of strawberries, you start thinking about delicious recipes to use them in. Making a strawberry puree is a great way to use strawberries that might be getting a little old. This is where this Strawberry Butter recipe was born. It is sweet, fluffy and perfectly refreshing with the tart flavor of fresh strawberries. Take your toast to the next level with this amazing strawberry butter!
How to Make Strawberry Butter
This only has 4 ingredients! It is super simple to make. First, rinse and hull your strawberries and place in a food processor. Blend until you have a smooth puree. The smell of strawberry puree is like heaven. Seriously, I could just eat this by the spoonful.
If you don’t like seeds, then you can take your puree and push it through a fine mesh sieve. This step does take some time – it probably took me 10 minutes. You can definitely skip this step if the seeds don’t bother you!
You will want your butter to be at room temperature when you whip it with the strawberry puree. I used my kitchen-aid and whipped the daylight out of them. And voila – you will have a creamy, fluffy, flavorful strawberry honey butter. Put it in a cute jar to give away!
This strawberry butter will last 2-3 weeks in your fridge. Make sure you put it in an airtight container to keep it fresh longer. Enjoy!

What do you mean by “cubes of butter”?
Our butter comes in cubes – 1/2 cup per cube. Changed the recipe to reflect that!
And this stays refrigerated, correct? Or can you really can it in a sealed can?
Yes it is meant to be refrigerated. I just put it in the jar because it was cute – I didn’t really can it!
This.looks.so.yum. *drool* How long will it stay good for?
It will stay good in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Gorgeous pictures! Your tips to reheat after straining and to use the Kitchenaid to really whip the butter are so helpful. I found lots of recipes, but your is the most descriptive. Thanks for posting!!
I am glad it was helpful!
I have learn several excellent stuff here. Definitely value bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you place to make any such fantastic informative web site.
Do you have any suggestions about what to put this butter on?
Thank you for sharing this recipe Natalie! It looks wonderful. Can I use coconut butter or some other kind of nut butter in place of dairy butter? Thanks!
Looks delicious! I was thinking of making these for teachers Valentine gifts! Could I use frozen strawberries, thawed?
You can definitely use coconut butter. A nut butter would drastically change the flavor of this, but might be delicious!
Looks good! How much does this recipe make? Can I safely double the recipe?
It makes about 2 pints. Yes you can definitely double the recipe and it will turn out fine!
Do you have to heat the honey? Heating honey makes it was less healthy …
You can add the honey after you simmer if you would like.
Would this recipe work with other berries in place of strawberries(such as raspberry, blueberries, blackberries, or a mixture of berries) ? Does it matter what kind of butter you use, whipped butter or regular stick butter?
