Strawberries and Cream – All That’s Missing Is the Blue!

Last week I picked up these beautiful local strawberries from Whole Foods in Columbus Circle. They were perfectly ripe. They were small and sweet and I think if they had been left out another day they would have gone bad – which means that they were at their absolute peak.

I can’t have fresh, local strawberries without whipped cream and this time was no exception. A while back I gave up processed food and that includes whipped cream from a spray can. So I got heavy whipping cream instead, and made it in my food processor.

Strawberries & Cream

Ingredients

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • A few teaspoons of sugar or the equivalent of stevia (stevia is optimal – I try not to eat much sugar at all; note if you use liquid stevia it is probably best to add it at the end or else it will interfere with the cream’s ability to whip up right)

Method

  1. Whip the cream and add some sugar (or stevia), to taste.
  2. Slice the strawberries.
  3. Mix together.
  4. Eat icon smile Strawberries and Cream   All Thats Missing Is the Blue!

This is a sweet treat that I learned from my mom. It’s perfect for breakfast or dessert. Or a snack. Or for dinner – I don’t have food rules about certain types of food at certain meals!

Happy Fourth! Enjoy this Red and White treat with something BLUE. Like BLUEberries or BLUEs music.

    Berries with whipped cream are a wonderful treat now that I’ve given up most sugar, grains, and PUFAs. Neyt year, just add some blueberries. ;)
