Strawberry & Cream

Strawberry and Cream
Or Strawberry Dream? I'm still not sure of the best name for this dessert but one thing I'm certain of: it tastes freaking amazing! 

And no, it is not yet strawberry season but luckily some nice people worked on importing this pretty red berry to my usual grocery store and that's how it end up finding it's way to this dreamy cream. THAT and the fact that in merely 10 days the world (or part of it any way) will be celebrating Valentine's Day... and what's more "valentiny" than strawberry? 
Strawberry and Cream of course! ...And maybe sparkling wine...

Strawberry and Cream
Preparation time: 30 min 
Yield: 4 portions
Level: Easy Peasy

Ingredients
  • 250g of Strawberry 
  • 1 cup of Whipping cream
  • 1 cup of Yogurt (low fat)
  • 3 tbsp of Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
  • 1 tsp of Gelatin (or 3 gelatin sheets)
  • 1 1/2 cup of Amarettini (or Amaretti)

Start by whipping the cream and when it starts to stiffen, sprinkle 2 tbsp of sugar over it - while still whipping. 

In the meantime, mix yogurt with 1 tbsp of sugar, vanilla and dissolved gelatin (according to package instructions). Fold in whipping cream until everything is very well incorporated. Set mixture aside. 


amaretti
Cut strawberry in slices and save a couple of them for decoration. Crush amarettini so you end up with amarettini crumbles. 

To assemble, place 2 tbsp of amarettini crumbles at the bottom of a glass, followed by 3 tbsp of the cream mixture, another 2 tbsp of amarettini, strawberry slices and finally another 2 tbsp of the cream mixture.
