When I’m in the hurry for a quick and easy dessert, I love to serve fresh Strawberries with French Cream. This is the perfect dessert to make when you don’t have enough time to bake anything, but still want a delicious dessert that everyone will love! For 4th of July (or anytime of year), add Strawberries with French Cream to a simple dessert tray. I guarantee you it’s impressive and delicious enough to serve to guests, yet easy enough to whip up any night of the week for your family. I picked up the navy star tiered tray at Home Goods this year and loaded it up with a few store bought cookies and patriotic decor. A bowl of fresh Strawberries with French Cream and dessert is ready!
Many many years ago, we had dinner at a friend’s home and she served fresh sweet strawberries with French Cream dip. I loved the combination of the dip with the sweet berries and was delighted that she shared her recipe with me. It’s so good! Made with whipping cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, French Cream is just the right balance of sweet (pwd. sugar) and tangy (cream cheese).
Strawberries with French Cream
- 1- 8 oz. block of cream cheese softened
- 1 pint whipping cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Using a blender (I used my Vitamix blender), add all ingredients and quickly blend until thoroughly mixed. It will only take a minute or two (depending on the strength of your blender).
- Do not over mix!!
