Do you love strawberry shortcake? I have just the recipe for you, but less trouble and less calories. This is a fabulous muffin recipe and I know because I have made my share of muffins with high school students. Since I just received my first strawberries of the season in my CSA box I was searching for a great recipe. I did not have to go far. The new issue of Southern Living coincidentally featured strawberry recipes ranging from strawberry pie to strawberry curd this month. There many great looking recipes using strawberries. I didn’t have to make a choice because my friend Syble mentioned to me that she tried these strawberry lemonade muffins which were divine. I was sold . Her word is gold and I love it when I don’t have to make decisions.

After making this I had some heavy cream just sitting in my refrigerator calling out to me every time I opened the door. Frozen creams are one of my favorites. I love this dessert. Whipped cream and strawberries are the perfect match in so many ways. It is rich, creamy, decadent and yet so simple. It is the perfect dessert for any meal. Now with the temperature heating up this frozen delight will hit the spot. And you could not ask for anything so easy. If you can whip cream you can make this.
It is also versatile with endless toppings. You could use most any fruit that you have available. Blueberries would be a great choice or fresh apricots with toasted almonds. My mouth waters just thinking about cranberries with oranges, sugar and toasted pecans. And more decadence could be orange marmalade with shaved chocolate. My gracious the list could go on and on. Create your own special piece of heaven.
