Strawberries and Cream

Strawberries and Cream

So, as a kid I was a very picky eater. I didn’t really like much and tortured my poor parents. Breakfast was a challenge. My sisters always laugh that my mom would go in the fridge and ask me for an hour, do you want this, how about this, etc? Well, in the morning if I didn’t want anything else she would cut up strawberries and bananas and cover them in a bowl with half and half. And it was delicious.

So years go by and I never thought about strawberries and cream, until one day I went to my friend Mita’s house. I’ve told you a little about her. She grew up very different from me in an Indian household in the city of San Francisco. I grew up in an Italian American household in the suburbs of Long Island. But somehow we are the same. Well, she thinks before she speaks, unlike me… Back to the story-I went to Mita’s one day for a quick visit. When I walked in she handed me a bowl of strawberries and cream. I took a double take because that was such an odd thing to serve. Especially since my mom used to make it for me as a kid. But it was so comforting and yummy. If you guys have picky eaters out there, chop up some fruit and cover it with cream. My mom did it a little different. Either way would be great!


  • One carton of chopped strawberries
  • One banana sliced(optional)
  • Half a pint of whipping cream(my mom only used half and half. No whipping cream, milk or sugar. But do as you please.)
  • 2-3 cups of milk(or almond milk)
  • Sugar to taste(optional)


  1. Place chopped fruit in a large bowl
  2. Cover with whipping cream, milk and sugar
