Stuffed Strawberries

For a simple but oh so special treat, try Stuffed Strawberries with REAL whipped cream! Besides homemade whipped cream being so much better tasting, it's healthier as well and it only takes a few minutes to whip up...literally!

Strawberries are pretty to look at, tasty to eat and packed full of nutritional benefits! The have a huge amount of vitamin C and are a great source of fiber, potassium an folate, plus strawberries have touted medical benefits as well - so go ahead and grab a few!

Stuffed Strawberries
1 cup heavy or whipping cream
1 1/2 TBS sugar (or more if you want it sweeter)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)

Wash and dry the berries. Parents, slice the green part of the berry off making a flat surface. Gently cut out a circle from the tip of each berry, digging down a bit. Kids pop the tail end of the berry in your mouth and enjoy!

For the whipped cream:
Place cold cream in your mixing bowl and mix on med-high speed until the cream begins to get firm (about 2 minutes),add in the sugar and vanilla if using and continue beating until nice and thick and peaks hold their place do not over beat unless you want to make butter lol!

Pipe the cream into each strawberry using a pastry bag and tip of your choice, or you can just throw some whipped cream into a sandwich bag, snip off the end, gently squeeze a bit into each strawberry it. I have taken these on picnic's transporting the berries and cream in an ice filled cooler - cream in a baggie, snipped of the end and filled them on site....quick and easy!

Happy Cooking!

  1. I made these a few months ago using the same recipe & they turned out delicious! In fact, I had to make a double batch because my family ate the first bath so fast.
