Strawberry Whipped Cream
Strawberry Whipped Cream is a simple, refreshing, easy dessert which can be prepared in less than 10 minutes.
Strawberry season is my all-time favourite season. Although, strawberries are available year-round most places, but these sweet berries taste better when you get them in season. Mahabaleshwar, a hill station in Maharashtra, India is known for its luscious strawberry fields. Apart from other Strawberry products, Strawberry Whipped Cream is quite popular there. This recipe will help you prepare a Mahabaleshwar style Strawberry Whipped Cream dessert at home, without any hassle.
I love the slight pink colour of this dessert with the delicious fresh strawberry flavours. If you haven’t got fresh strawberries in season, freeze dried strawberries work well too.
This recipe is relished chilled and is like our few recipes: Strawberry Fool, Strawberry Sandesh, Strawberry Ice-cream, Strawberry Rasgulla Pudding, Healthy Sugar free Strawberry Smoothie, Chocolate Strawberry Pudding and Petha Mango Sandesh.
1 cup double cream (or whipping cream)
1 cup roughly chopped strawberries
2 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoons castor sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon finely chopped strawberries
Whisk the cream to a fluffy soft peak. It will take around 5-8 minutes to achieve that consistency. Be careful not to over whip.
Puree the strawberries with castor sugar, vanilla essence and cream.
Add the strawberry puree to the whipped cream and whisk it for 1-2 minutes until well combined.
Empty it in the bowl and sprinkle some chopped strawberries.
