Valentine’s day is around the corner and while there doesn’t need to be a reason to express love, but when there is one, why would you miss it, right? A little time out to take a pause and enjoy your relationship is always a good idea and we like to keep it light, easy and effortless, always all things natural at DaisyLife.
Different routes to the heart but the expressway is via those taste buds and there’s nothing better than the season’s best that’s perfect for the occasion and kindles love just right. Yes we are saying it with strawberries. To taste an amazing life, pick a simple strawberry and bite into it...

1. Fresh whole juicy strawberries
2. Fresh peeled Orange
3. Dark Chocolate bar about 100 gms – (We have used Morde Dark Compound)
4. Bamboo skewer sticks
Time: 25 mins
15 mins to prep, 10 mins to set
Wash and pat dry strawberries. Peel and remove the white fibre from the oranges. Place it in bamboo ring basket. Remove the seeds gently and pat dry with kitchen towel or tissue.
Break the chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave or on a double boiler. Keep mixing the chocolate lightly in between to make sure it doesn’t get too hot and has a smooth silky texture.
Stick a skewer into each strawberry and dip half into the melted chocolate. Remove immediately and keep standing in a glass. Similarly stick it along the length of the oranges and dip halfway into the chocolate. Once all are done, put it in the fridge for 10 mins to set and they are ready to serve.
Serving Tip: Best enjoyed with the favourite bubbly to enhance the taste buds.
Pro Tip: Do not recommend adding sugar, toppings or other ingredients to experience the pure strawberry and chocolate flavours.
No matter which love language sets your ship sailing, this one gets all the checks. Go ahead and surprise him or delight her with your smooth skills in the kitchen – this is the secret recipe from that playbook.
