Something very happy has happened around here. I have discovered the magical flavors of roasted strawberries. Have you ever done this? You need to drop everything to roast up a batch right now. Right after you read this post. Maybe in order to do this you must dash to the market to get a big batch of strawberries. That’s OK, i’ll be waiting for you when you get back. On your shopping list add a juicy orange, a jar of unrefined coconut oil and some thick Greek yogurt.
Ready. Set. Let’s roast!
There are the berries before the heat. They are simply coated in two tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice and a tablespoon of my favorite coconut oil I use all the time.
The dazzling red color of these roasted berries says it all. Like stained glass I tell ya. Ahhhh, the beauty…
The coconut oil and citrus add even more flavor to an all ready perfect treat.
We have lots of fresh strawberries all year round here in California. This dessert/snack will be perfect for spring and summer picnics and parties too.
Strawberries get superbly sweet when heat is applied. They taste kind of like a liquid fruit roll up. Actually if you baked these for waaaayy longer you would end up with fruit leather/roll ups.
For now we will stick with parfaits. I suggest you try these strawberries with your oatmeal too. They make a nice spreadable jam as well. Smear some on your buttered toast.
For my vegan friends use a vegan soy or coconut yogurt. I would never want to leave you out of all this fun!
Have you ever roasted strawberries? Have I now convinced you that this is a mandatory thing to do?

Wow this looks divine! Those photos make me want to grab a spoon and dive right in. I love roasted strawberries and have been roasting them for a while. They are absolutely fantastic. My favourite roasted strawberry recipe would have to be roasted strawberry ice cream.
Thanks for including my roasted strawberry cheesecake recipe in your links!
Jennifer, roasted strawberry ice cream sounds amazing! Must try that. Your cheesecake recipe is fun too!
Roasted strawberries? What is this you speak of?! Sounds amazing. I’ve honestly never thought of roasting them before. I bet it’d be great in a strawberry shortcake type of dessert, too!
Leanne, they would be great in a strawberry shortcake recipe. So very true! Girl, you gotta try roasting them soon, K?!
I have never had a roasted strawberry – wow. I bet that is tasty!
Oh that looks so good! I’ve been seeing a lot of strawberries in the markets in Mexico lately, spring is just around the corner. and I’m definitely making this.
That tray of roasted strawberries is so superbly beautiful that, yes, you have indeed convinced me that I need to roast up a batch. Just stunning.
Marla, you make everything look so so beautiful!!
Can’t WAIT to roast some of the strawberries in my freezer 🙂
Gorgeous as ever Marla!! xoxo
Yes! I love roasted fruit. In fact I just had roasted banana pancakes over the weekend. I love that it brings out a little extra sweetness!
I have never roasted strawberries but it sounds like I missed out on a lot of flavor! I will have to try this as soon as I can find good looking strawberries…ah, can’t wait for the summer!
i can’t wait to find good berries out here…it’s been too long and i would LOVE to make this!
I love roasted strawberries! Roasting fruits and veggies really bring out all the natural sweetness! This parfait sounds so delightful!
These parfaits are so lovely, Marla, and super simple. I’d love to try these for myself! Your photos makes them seem so irresistible. Keep up the great work, girl!
I am in love with these, Marla. Absolutely gorgeous!
Oh you’re killing me! We don’t get good juicy strawberries here until June-ish.
This looks delicious. I can’t wait to taste the flavor of the strawberries after applying your heat technique! This is the perfect recipe for the brink of Spring!
I love roasted strawberries! Beautiful parfaits!
Looks yumm, I wish I could have some now, very tempting! Love yourklicks too!
Marla, this is so gorgeous! Who needs whip cream or icecream when u have thick, delicious Greek yogurt. I have never thought of roasting strawberries. This looks sooooo good! Roasted veggies have such a sweet yummy flavor, the strawberries must be divine. Love it!
Wow, this looks delish! I never thought of roasting strawberries, love that!! I am such a strawberry fan, I swear I can eat my weight in strawberries! In the summer I go through a case a week!

So loving this, Marla! Roasted fruit – I could so get addicted to this. Also loving the pix! All the way around delicious!!
Beautiful pictures and what a wonderful recipe!!
These parfaits are amazing! We are never without a few pints of strawberries in our house. I have never tried roasted strawberries but I will be very soon! Thank you for the inspiration and a delicious recipe!
In all honesty, I have never thought of roasting strawberries or any other berry. Now, I am so inspired. This is great, Marla! Thanks for the nudge to roast strawberries.
I don’t think I’ve tried roasted strawberries…roasted peaches though, yes! i’ll bet these will work with many other fruits too…like figs!
Well I already have the coconut oil and greek yogurt so now I guess I need to start working on roasting some strawberries!
Sylvie, sounds like you are all set! Go for it girl 🙂
I have a hard time getting to the roasting because by the time I get to it the kids have already eaten the strawberries! They’re sneaky I tell ya!
Shawna, you must sneak some back & roast them!
I’ve been on such a fresh fruit kick lately! these look amazing Marla!
Wow – the look divinely delish! Thanks for the great idea… for super sweet and luscious strawberries I will definitely be giving this a go xo
That would make my morning breakfast so delicious!
Lovely recipe and photos, Marla! Love parfaits and this looks so fresh and vibrant. Roasted strawberries?! ‘Nuff said!
I adore roasted strawberries. This recipe is divine!
I love the idea of roasting strawberries – I’ve roasted grapes before but never strawberries. Roasting definitely brings out the sweetness in fruits and vegetables.
This parfait looks like absolute perfection. I truly cannot wait to try it.
This looks just lovely. I am pinning it. 🙂
Roasted strawberries?! I can’t wait to try it!
It looks just amazing. What more can I say? I can nearly taste the strawberries just by looking at these photos.
I haven’t roasted strawberries but you’ve convinced me to try. Beautiful pictures!
I’m on a tight budget…can I use something other than coconut oil, or will it ruin the taste? Thanks! They look delish. 🙂
Hi Emily, you will probably do just fine roasting the strawberries in a neutral flavored oil, like canola. The coconut oil is a better flavor though, remember one jar will last a really long time 🙂
Do these keep well overnight? I’m making a large breakfast for around 30 people but like to do as much prep work the night before as I can, and would love to make this! Been eyeing this recipe for months 🙂 Thanks so much
