Deep Fried Strawberries

Now days people will deep fry anything.
I fried Strawberries.

Have you been to the fair lately? Unfortunately I have not been since my daughter was little, but I do know they have some unique foods and good ol fattening food too.

This year at the fair the newest thing was deep fried Kool Aid. I had my daughter bring me some back when she went. It was nothing like I expected. I thought it would be a crispy, sticky sweet hard candy like something on a stick. Instead, It was like a cherry flavored funnel cake. They just added kool aid too batter, deep fried it, and rolled it in powder sugar.

I have been trying to stay away from sweets, I have been eating a lot of strawberries dipped in sugar free cool whip as a snack. By the way, sugar free cool whip taste no different than the regular kind. It is delicious. You would never know its sugar free.

While eating a bowl of strawberries the other night, I thought id try to deep fry some. I mean, if you can fry a Twinkie, you can fry a strawberry. My mind was set in strawberry pancake mode. I just knew this could be done so I attempted it.

I like the way they turned out. There are a lot of possibilities with these yummy fruit fritters.
I added power sugar to mine but I think they would also be good with a glaze of honey or syrup. Maybe rolled in cinnamon or even some chocolate drizzle.

So much for staying away from the sweet stuff! Powder sugar is one of my weaknesses.
These would be great for a breakfast side.
