Strawberry Cream

Strawberry Cream recipe with step by step photos. Quick to prepare Mahabaleshwar style delicious dessert made with fresh strawberries and cream. Strawberry with whipped cream is a dessert that is popular in Mahabaleshwar (a hill station in Maharashtra, India). It is served in almost all hotels and restaurants there.

What is served there is usually in tall glasses, but I have served in ice cream cups as this is a rich dessert. I have used fresh cream which is 25% fat and is basically a light cream. You can easily use 35% to 50% fat cream also known as whipping cream or heavy cream.

This recipe is a simple version of strawberry cream similar to a mixed fruit cream recipe. I have not used ice cream in the recipe. Though you can add one or two scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream or Strawberry Ice Cream.

Strawberry cream makes for a nice fruity dessert that can be served after meals. Along with strawberry cream, one more recipe which is a popular snack in Mahabaleshwar is corn patties.

How to make this simple strawberries and cream recipe.

Prepare the strawberries: Remove the green stems from the strawberries and cut until they’re all roughly the same size. You may need to cut larger strawberries into quarters.

Sugar the strawberries: Add the chopped strawberries to a bowl with granulated sugar and toss to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes until all the sugar is dissolved.

Prepare the cream: Stir the vanilla extract into the cream until fully incorporated. If you’d like, whip the cream slightly so it’s a little thicker.

Assemble: Evenly distribute the sugared strawberries into serving bowls or glasses, then pour the cream over the strawberries. Garnish with a sprig of mint.


  • For vegan or dairy-free strawberries and cream, use full-fat coconut milk or any thick plant-based milk.
  • For a cold and creamy treat, mix the sugared strawberries with vanilla ice cream.
  • Take a shortcut and use canned whipped cream with the strawberries for a sweet, light, and airy flavor.
  • Add your favorite berries to the mix including raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries.


Storing: For best results, this strawberry dessert can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours in an airtight container.

Freezing: Due to the high water content in fresh strawberries and the change in the texture of cream once frozen, freezing is not recommended.


For a slightly thicker cream, whip the heavy whipping cream to infuse air until a thick foam is formed.

Choose bright vibrant red ripe strawberries for best results as they contain the best natural sweetness.

Make sure the sugar fully dissolves on the strawberries before pouring the cream over them.

You can eat this dessert right away, but it tastes much better after sitting in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to incorporate.
