Strawberries and whipped cream is a 3 ingredient dessert that is simple and delicious! This tasty dessert consists of strawberries, whipped cream, and store bought pound cake. That’s it! Who would have guessed that something so easy could be so scrumptious? Ok, if you make home-made whipped cream, and I think you should, it’s a 4 ingredient dessert.
To make your own whipped cream you just whip together 1 cup of heavy cream with 1 Tbsp powdered sugar. You can do this in a blender, a food processor, you can use a hand mixer, a stand mixer, an immersion blender, a chilled bowl and whisk, or even shake it together in a mason jar. Be careful not to over-mix or you could end up with butter! However, if you must, you can use store bought. I promise I won’t judge you 😉
Next, cut up some fresh, sweet strawberries. Feel free to substitute your favorite fruit. Remember, a recipe is a guideline, not a rule!
Then, stir the strawberries, or whatever fruit you like, into the whipped cream. It’s best if you allow this mixture to sit overnight. But in a pinch, you can serve it right away.
Finally, slice up a pound cake and top each piece with the whipped cream mixture. This 3 (or 4) ingredient dessert is simple, fresh, and delicious! What could be wrong with the combination of those sweet strawberries, that creamy whipped cream, and that buttery pound cake?! Strawberries and whipped cream is a light, yummy dessert that says summer to me!
