~Strawberries with Mint Whipped Cream~

My Owner and me appreciate every Dessert recipe~! This includes even the simplest ones that exist like Strawberries with some cream~ He loves fruits so much too. So mixing some sweet elements with them are such a perfect combination~! ^^ Trying the mint whipped cream is a bit new for us, but it’s still delicious~

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Make syrup: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar, mint, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil. Remove from heat; steep 15 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a measuring cup, pressing to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids. Let cool (makes about 1/4 cup).

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in 1/4 cup syrup (store any remaining syrup); if needed, re-whip cream to stiffen.

  3. Starting with strawberries, spoon alternating layers of strawberries and cream into four serving glasses. Top each with a mint sprig.

Note: You can also try the mint syrup (step 1) to sweeten iced tea or lemonade. For a bracing cocktail, add a splash to a glass filled with seltzer, vodka, and lemon.
