Strawberry Butter is a delicious spread made from crushed dried strawberries. It tastes great on toast, pancakes, waffles, muffins, scones, biscuits, etc. You can even eat it straight off the spoon!
Fresh and Easy Homemade Whipped Strawberry Butter Recipe
I'd like to add a special note. If you have other berries or fresh strawberries, you can actually substitute them for strawberries. You could make whipped blackberry butter, whipped blueberry butter, or whipped raspberry butter. Just use the berries you choose in the recipe instead of strawberries. The butter will be a little softer if you're not using freeze-dried berries.
Strawberry butter is made by mixing softened butter with freeze-dried strawberries. This recipe uses a fork to mix the two ingredients together.
This recipe makes one log of whipped strawberry butter. You can make more if you want by doubling the number of strawberries and doubling the amount of butter.

Let's Talk Butter
Butter is made by churning cream into butter. This process removes some of the milk fat and adds more water. Soft fruits such as apples, pears, and berries are great in butter because they contain lots of natural sugar.
Butter made with high-quality dairy products is better than butter made with low-quality dairy products. Also, try to get organic butter if possible. For more information about butter, take a peek at my comprehensive blog post here.
To Mix the Butter
I softened the butter and used a fork to mix the butter and strawberry dust together. You can also use a mixer or whisk to really whip the butter. In a jam, a fork will work well.
Whipped vs. Mashed
In this recipe, you can either make whipped strawberry butter or you can mash the butter. Either method will work. You can also use the food processor.
Mixing strawberries and butter together make a delicious treat. Adding sugar to the mix gives the strawberry-butter mixture a sweet taste. I do not usually add sugar, but you can add a teaspoon of granulated sugar if you think it needs to be sweeter.
Butter is mashed with a spoon and then strawberry dust is added. You can use a mixer to whip the butter and strawberry dust together to make whipped strawberry butter. You can also use a blender to crush the freeze-dried strawberries. Just make sure to use a sieve to filter out any large pieces of strawberry. You want fine dust.

Butter should always be at room temperature before whipping. Cold butter doesn't whip well. Frozen strawberries are hard to use in this recipe because they'll get mushy after being whipped.
