Strawberries & Cream

Strawberries & Cream by fit, fun & delish!P I N_______I M A G E

I’m not sure if I should call this a “green” habit, a good trait or a an annoying OCD personality. But for the life of me I can’t get rid of plastic containers!! Either from store bought food or from restaurant leftovers. At least not until I use them one more time. Somebody help me please….. I have STACKS of 32 oz yogurt containers in my cabinet drawer! I either need to start making more food to share or I need to throw them away. I need to do this cold turkey. Period.

I may need a 12 step program… do you know of any I can go to? What do you do with your plastic containers? Do you just throw them out? Please tell me I’m not the only one! ๐Ÿ˜€

I made Strawberries & Cream for Father’s Day and they were a hit! The beauty of this dessert is it’s good enough to make for one person of for a crowd. If you make it for a group of people I have no doubt everybody will be impressed and you may even be asked for more ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a little strawberry sauce leftover so today I added it to some plain greek yogurt (sweetened with sugar free french vanilla Torani syrup). Oh my! The texture was so smooth. ย Just like if I used whipped cream. It was hard to believe it was a healthy dessert!

Strawberries & Cream
Author: Fit, Fun & Delish!
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 7.5 teaspoons natural sweetener such as [url href="http://truvia.com/products" target="_blank"]Truvia[/url] or Stevia, divided. (if regular sugar is preferred, use 5 tablespoons.)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for a healthy option use plain non-fat greek yogurt instead)
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, puree 2.5 cups strawberries and 4.5 teaspoons of Truvia or Stevia (or 3 Tbsp sugar) until smooth.
  2. Strain the puree through a fine colander and discard the seeds. Chill the puree until cold.
  3. In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat the heavy cream until it forms soft peaks.
  4. Add the remaining 3 teaspoon of Truvia (or 2 Tbsp sugar) and continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  5. Fold the puree into the whipped cream until mixed but streaks of white and puree are still visible.
  6. Transfer to serving cups and chill until ready to eat. Garnish with fresh strawberries before serving.
  7. Cook's notes: I use the Truvia Baking Blend for natural sweeteners as it tastes more like sugar and it has no after taste like other natural sweeteners may have.

    Alexandra @ Confessions of a Bright-Eyed Baker - We are THE SAME WAY at my house! Tons of plastic containers saved from who knows how long ago. ๐Ÿ˜€ I use them to store cookies or other desserts sometimes, and things like that, but there are so many we have from items we haven’t bought in years!
    Anyway, over to Strawberries and Cream… it looks so simple and delicious – perfect for summer! I love your props, too!ReplyCancel
