WHAT YOU NEED:
- Fresh strawberries.
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Dessert cups.
- Whipped cream.
For those who enjoy a hot drink I would suggest a cup of tea or coffee. Both go really well with this delectable dessert. Milk goes well too, not just with cookies. This would make a good choice for the individuals who are mindful of how much sugars are consumed through their meals.
- (1 cup) fresh strawberries.
- (1/2 cup) sugar.
- (1/2 gallon) Vanilla ice cream
- (6 pack) dessert cups.
- 1 can or container of whipped cream.
Dice strawberries into a bowl. Add the sugar to the strawberries (amount can be adjusted up or down to accommodate taste and health conscious individuals). Stir with a fork causing strawberries to be lightly mashed. This will really allow the strawberries and juice to mix and absorb the sugar. Let the mixture sit while preparing the rest of the dessert.
Using a blender, slightly soften the vanilla ice cream. Now distribute the dessert cups onto individual plates.
Add one scoop of ice cream to each dessert cup. With a table spoon, scoop even proportions of strawberry mixture onto the ice cream. Pour remaining strawberry juice, evenly distributed, between the servings. Cover top of dessert with whipped cream. Top with a whole strawberry for aesthetics (optional).
No cooking needed. This beauty is ready to serve cold. That is the great thing about this one. It can be prepared in under ten minutes and offers a fruitful ending to a delicious meal.
Watch out now. They will be asking for this dessert more often and that’s not a bad thing. As a side note, preparing the strawberries and sugar the night before and letting them meld in the fridge overnight only makes them that much more juicy.
