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
- 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)
- Whip the cream and add some sugar (or stevia), to taste.
- Slice the strawberries.
- Mix together.
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.
