Strawberries & cream has significance in my home. It’s a simple dessert recipe (probably the easiest I’ve ever shared), but it sure is tasty. Why, you might ask? Well, ever since I have known my husband, his favorite dessert has been strawberries and cream.
Actually, he loves all things strawberries. Strawberries with cheesecake, strawberries and cream, strawberries on chocolate cake – the list goes on. You can definitely say that strawberries are his favorite fruit, so we always have them stocked up in our house.
I know that our family and friends that live in the North occasionally struggle with finding fresh fruit in the winter, but for us, we have no issue with it at all. In fact, Fresh From Florida strawberries are in season right now – even with the crazy weather we’ve had! Living in the south definitely has its perks and for me, the biggest perk (other than the great weather!) is having ultra fresh produce year-round and the amazing Florida farmers make this so easy for us!
We actually went shopping yesterday morning (on Superbowl Sunday) and the Fresh From Florida Strawberries were flying off the shelves. Probably because they look so good! So, we snagged a few cartons and I got to work on one of Ian’s favorite recipes, Strawberries & Cream and I took a few quick pictures to share with you all today.
I’m not kidding when I say that it’s a simple dessert recipe – I seriously made this in just a couple of minutes and it was so good! Here is the recipe:
A Simple Dessert Recipe: Strawberries & Cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream cold
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Pour whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla into your mixer
Mix on high until the cream gets firm, forming peaks in the cream (about 1-2 minutes)
Wash and cut your strawberries
Scoop your whipped cream into a bowl or cup
Place your strawberries around the edge, or top however you would like
I know that your family will absolutely love this recipe! Honestly, it is one of the easiest recipes you can make and everyone goes wild for it. The whipped cream recipe is pretty basic and can be used for so many other recipes, as well. So, if you want to add this to your list of simple dessert recipe, head to your local grocery store to pick up some Fresh From Florida Strawberries. Don’t forget to follow the Fresh on social media and check out their recipe videos, as well. When you are in stores, you can look for food, produce, and seafood labeled Fresh From Florida!
