It’s fresh and light, but decadent at the same time and one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make…with just 4 simple ingredients!
Ingredients for fresh Strawberry Dessert
This is what you’ll need to make this simple fruit dessert:
- Strawberries – fresh is best, but frozen strawberries will work. Be sure to thaw and drain before using.
- Granulated Sugar – for variety, try brown sugar or maple syrup! This recipe is perfect for all your natural sweeteners including keto sweeteners.
- Orange Liqueur – no limit on the variety of liquor to add flavor and give this dessert a “boozy” appeal. Blackberry liqueur is especially tasty!
- Orange – used to rim the glasses for a sugary dip.
HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY DESSERT FOR TWO
- Wash and hull the strawberries. Cut each strawberry into thin slices. Then, in a medium bowl combine the strawberries with sugar, orange liqueur and the juice of half an orange. Let the strawberries macerate (soften by soaking in liquid) for at least 1 hour.
- Dress up your glasses by rubbing an orange slice around the rim, then dipping the rim in sugar.
- Fill the glasses with the softened strawberries and garnish with whipped cream and a whole strawberry if you want your dessert to look extra special.
*Serve this dessert in pretty Martini glasses, so it looks dressed up, like a fancy cocktail.
This tasty little dessert is a delicious finish to a romantic dinner for two. It is also a quick, easy dessert recipe that you will want to serve all year long!
