*I am partnering with Dixie Crystals to bring you this strawberry butter recipe.
Looking for something different to spread on your toast in the morning? Most of us get in a breakfast rut, where we just keep eating the same things over and over.
I'm the same way. Whenever we have an extra box of strawberries, I find myself making this strawberry chia jam or this strawberry sauce because it's just easy and we like them. This time I wanted something different to make with the berries.
This strawberry butter was the perfect solution. It was so easy to make in minutes with ingredients I already had in our kitchen.
Why You Will Love It
- Only 3 ingredients! That's right. Just butter, strawberries, and sugar are needed.
- Ready in 5 minutes. All you need to do is mix everything together until you have strawberry butter.
- Fancy breakfast spread. This pretty pink butter will add a special touch to breakfast or brunch.
- Easy to customize! You can add other flavors like vanilla, honey, or lemon zest to change up the compound butter.
What I love the most about this whipped strawberry butter is how good it tastes. It's sweet and delicious and makes me feel like I'm eating at a bed & breakfast.
What You Need
With just three ingredients, you can make your very own jar of homemade strawberry butter.
- Butter - For the best tasting flavored butter use full fat, unsalted butter. Do not use margarine!
- Powdered Sugar - Sweetens the butter.
- Strawberries - Fresh, in season berries will give it the best flavor. Look for berries that are firm and bright red.

You can use whole frozen strawberries. Just thaw them overnight in the refrigerator. Let come to room temperature and drain any liquids before dicing. I personally recommend using fresh fruit.
Can I use other fruits?
Yes, you can use any soft fruit that you have on hand. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, or peaches would be delicious.
