Recipe: Strawberries and cream

Dietitian's tip: Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C and potassium. Here they're paired with amaretto liqueur and sour cream for a low-fat dessert.

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, hulled and halved (reserve 6 whole for garnish)

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, brown sugar and liqueur.

In a large bowl, add the halved strawberries and sour cream mixture. Stir gently to mix. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour.

Scoop the strawberries into 6 colorful bowls or chilled sherbet glasses. Garnish with whole strawberries and serve immediately.
