Notes

To puree' strawberries, just place them in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Use any extra for a garnish or on top of yogurt, ice cream, waffles or pancakes.
 
You don't have to use a spring form pan, any round one will work. These silicone ones are amazing, (affiliate link) they require no greasing.
 
If you are using a different type of sweetener, make sure you use a conversion chart to get the right amount.
