The Best Way To Say “I Love You Berry Much” = Strawberries & Cream

What did one strawberry say to the other strawberry? “I love you berry much!”

Strawberries are Noelle’s favorite fruit, so best believe we’re eating it with everything: toast, cereal, salads, you name it! We don’t make dessert often, but when we do we like to keep it sweet and simple. Fruit is a great dessert option, as it has its own natural sweetness and also provides much needed vitamins! For dessert for our anniversary dinner, we decided to wrap things up with a refreshing bowl of Strawberries and Cream. Adding fresh whipped cream compliments the strawberries very well (just ask Wimbledon!), and this recipe is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth in a way that doesn’t require added sugar or copious amounts of butter or fats. Read on for the recipe!


Servings: 2

Prep Time: 5-10 min

Cook Time: 0 min

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (very cold)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Special Equipment You Need:

  • a hand mixer or electric mixer with whisk attachment
  • High-walled mixing bowl

Recipe:

  1. In a bowl, whip the cold whipping cream and vanilla extract together in a bowl for 5-7 minutes until stiff, white peaks appear. To prevent splatter, start your whip on the lowest lowest speed, then increase the speed 1 level at a time until you reach the highest speed. Do the reverse when you want to turn off the mixer. You can make this fresh or 1-2 hours prior to serving (which we totes recommend).
  2. When you’re ready for some deliciousness, wash your strawbs and slice! (Noelle likes them sliced so that they look like triangles)
  3. Scoop out as much whipping cream as you want into a bowl (start with about 1/2 cup per person) and top with strawberries!

Enjoy!
