  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Remove and discard the stems from the strawberries. Slice the fruit into thin slices and transfer to a medium bowl.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add sour cream, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla extract. Whisk together to combine.
  3. Scoop 1/2 cup sliced strawberries into 6 bowls or cups. Then top each cup with 1/2 cup sweet cream mixture.
  4. Serve immediately with a spoon or store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Tips from the author:

  • Instead of full-fat sour cream, you could also use light or nonfat sour cream, plain Greek yogurt or crème fraiche.
  • Instead of evaporated milk, you could use whole milk or half-and-half.
  • Don’t have fresh strawberries? You could use frozen strawberries (make sure to thaw them before mixing with the cream) or a different fruit like blueberries, raspberries or peaches.
