Strawberry season is in full swing in the Pacific Northwest and the bountiful sweet berries that are truly local are only around a short time. I bought a half flat and we will enjoy them quickly. For the next day we will be eating strawberry everything! Today’s gem is adapted from My Recipes. The sound of the cream, yogurt and lemon with the sweet strawberries was a draw to this recipe. I left the berries in their true sweet form without adding sugar and added a little honey to the whipping cream with the lemon zest and yogurt.
- 2 pints strawberries, rinsed and cut lengthwise
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 cup whole fat plain yogurt
- strawberries for garnish
- optional: add 1 teaspoon vanilla to cream
Rinse berries and slice lengthwise. Set bowl aside. Whip cream with high speed mixer. When almost thickened, add honey, yogurt and lemon zest (and vanilla if added) and finish whipping to combine.
Divide half of berries among 4-6 glasses of your choice. Top with half of cream mixture and repeat leaving last layer cream. Top with whole berries for garnish. Refrigerate or serve immediately.
