Strawberries are one of the world’s most popular fruits. They are nutritious, lower in sugar than many other fruits, and make a great addition to many dishes. So how many calories are there in strawberries? Not very many, so enjoy these berries without guilt.
One cup of whole strawberries has about 45 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 141% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C.
For dessert, try a bowl of fresh strawberries with organic whipped cream or a little drizzle of dark chocolate.
You can also puree frozen strawberries to make your own homemade, low-calorie sorbet.
One note: try to buy organic strawberries whenever possible because strawberries are one of the foods that are heaviest in pesticide residues when they are grown in a conventional manner.
