Steamed Strawberries Vanilla Cream

The simple and quick dessert with warm strawberries

Steamed Strawberries Vanilla Cream

My current conversations with my 12-year-old, mostly while munching strawberries, revolve around the question of what he wants to be when he grows up. They usually start with the question: “Well, mom, what do I do if my dream of becoming a basketball pro doesn’t come true!?”. Well, there it is, the well-known realism from the adult world. Unfortunately earlier than I would have expected. To be honest, Steamed Strawberries and Vanilla Cream makes me a little sad. Building a castle in the air with him was at least as fulfilling for me as it was for him.

Also because it catapulted me back to my childhood. How I felt when I talked for hours with my girlfriend about my (unrealistic) career dream of becoming a dancer with the German TV Ballet. We both painted everything in exuberance and then danced around in the children’s room with loud music and hair blowing in the air. Preferably in my favorite skirt with little strawberries on it. It turned out to be the most beautiful of all…

I am eagerly awaiting the strawberry season

Strawberries can not only make girls’ skirts turn, but also make hearts beat faster ? . Definitely mine. My absolute favorite fruit and my declared little comforter. When I get very good organic quality, the particularly aromatic taste brings me back to my childhood at the latest. By the way, you can eat as many strawberries as you want because they have hardly any calories ? .

You can find more information about strawberries, when they are in season and when they are available from local cultivation, as well as everything about correct storage, preparation, and what else needs to be considered in my strawberry season calendar:

Steamed strawberries with vanilla cream – a dessert with a difference

This time I let my strawberry love run wild in a desert. Inspired by a visit to a restaurant that felt like decades ago. Steamed strawberries topped with vanilla cream. Strawberries sautéed in butter in a pan and warmed up. The butter sauce is then refined with orange juice. Warm strawberries are a real delicacy and make the small vitamin C bombs even more digestible for sensitive stomachs.

If you only half-whip the vanilla cream for the steamed strawberries, the taste of the cream will be particularly delicious. It’s not as greasy as stiff whipped cream. Incidentally, half-whipped means that the cream has a creamy consistency. You stop hitting before she starts to get stiff.

The steamed strawberries with vanilla cream bring a nice change to the strawberry dessert world. They will definitely cause a brief astonishment in your loved ones.
