Summer Treat | Fresas con Crema
This has been our family’s favorite summertime treat for a few years now. Whenever I make it for friends that visit, it’s usually followed up by writing down the recipe for them. So now that I’ve made it a handful of times I thought it’s too good not to share with you all too.
Now, I KNOW I'm no food blogger nor am I trying to be, but I'm so happy to pass it along now for you to enjoy! So here is all you need to put together this creamy yummy special treat...
What you need:
-2 cups fresh strawberries (give or take, depending on how many you are making for)
-1 1/2 cups heavy cream
-2 tablespoons milk (if you want your cream a little thinner)
-½ cup vanilla greek yogurt (optional, but gives more flavor and thickness to cream too)
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 tablespoon vanilla extract
-Cut strawberries in halves or quarters (depending on the size you like) and place in a bowl
-pour sugar over strawberries and mix, coating all of the fruit in sugar
-let strawberries sit for at least 5 minutes for sugar to absorb
-after 5 minutes are up, pour over heavy cream and milk
(optional tip: I like mine extra creamy so I usually pour in as much to barely cover the top of the strawberries in the bowl)
-add vanilla extract for flavor, then mix all together
-if you'd like your dessert colder, let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to become chilled, otherwise you can eat it right away!
-once chilled, divide into bowls and top with optional coconut flakes and granola (which I highly recommend ;)) and serve!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we have! If you decide to try it out on our own or with your kiddos please let me know what you think. You can always tag me on Instagram or comment here below. I'd love to hear from you!
