Interesting uses for frozen strawberries. (No smoothies, please)

I have a lot of good quality but slightly past their prime strawberries that I threw in the freezer earlier this summer, thinking I'd use them for smoothies. Only the smoothie-drinker in the house has gone off to college. Any other ideas? I don't feel like ice cream.

      Thanks. I often make banana bread to use up old bananas, so this is perfect.

        This strawberry bread is very good. You can throw bananas in there as well or make it in muffin form.

    2. I sometimes use frozen strawberries as ice cubes in ginger ale. As they thaw, I mash them up a little bit with my straw to get the full berry flavor.

      1. Yogurt parfaits! Top with granola. Yours will be better than any fast food versions.

        1. I throw frozen fruits in any kind of bread. Strawberry muffins, strawberry pancakes, strawberry waffles, etc.

          1. Make some lovely Eton Mess or Strawberry Fool. How about semifreddo? Or you could use them in a strawberry sauce, coulis or puree. Heck - you could even make a fruit leather out of them!
