Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pour quartered strawberries into a serving bowl & drizzle with 1-2 TBS. of simple syrup. Mix well with a spoon until evenly coated & they have the desired sweetness. Set aside.
  • Pour cold heavy whipping cream into the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Mix on medium-high speed for approximately 2 minutes or until the cream stands up on its own in peaks. (Alternatively, mix with a hand mixer, or if you're feeling really energetic-a whisk.)
  • Add 1 tsp of the simple syrup, vanilla extract, & vanilla bean powder to the whipped cream while the machine is running. Stop the machine, scrape down the sides, and mix again until thoroughly incorporated and the cream stands up in peaks. 
  • Serve the sliced strawberries with the whipped cream immediately in bowls, or you can layer the strawberries with the cream in clear parfait glasses for a pretty presentation. 
  • Store the whipped cream & strawberries covered tightly in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Allow the strawberries to come to room temperature before serving. 

Notes

Recipe yield 4 cups of whipped cream and 5 cups of strawberries. Note: Heavy whipping cream approximately doubles in volume when whipped, so 1 pt. (2 cups) of whipping cream will yield about  4 cups whipped cream. 
A serving size equals 1/2 C of strawberries + 1/2 C of whipped cream.
