Fresas con Crema Strawberries and Cream
The sweet, creamy and refreshing flavor of Fresas Con Crema Strawberries and Cream, is the perfect addition to a warm Spring or hot summer day.
It’s the perfect after dinner treat or simply a “just because” treat.
My garden is overflowing with Strawberries.
That’s why, when I received this month’s Secret Recipe Club blog assignment, I was thrilled to see this Fresas Con Crema Strawberries and Cream recipe.
But I’m getting head of myself.
It’s time once again for Secret Recipe Club and that means that today I will reveal what blog I was assigned and what I decided to make.
I was super excited this month to receive La Cocina de Leslie.
We’ve known each other for awhile now, from another group we are in together.
I already know Leslie has loads of amazing recipes on her blog, and I knew it wouldn’t be hard to find something absolutely fantastic to make.
Of course I wasn’t wrong, and of course there were so many choices I inevitably wanted to make them all.
On the top of our list to make, was Tres Leches Pancakes, Strawberry Pie, Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake Cake, Homemade Strawberry Jam and Strawberry Empanadas
We decided on her Fresas Con Crema, because it sounded delicious and was the perfect after dinner snack tonight.
I’m sure you noticed a Strawberry theme.
I am not sure what happened in my garden between last year and this year, but the strawberries have taken off and grown a bit out of control.
I’m not complaining but I am in a little bit of a panic because I refuse to waste a single one and I really don’t want 80 jars of strawberry jelly. haha
But seriously though… no waste.
So it’s off to find as many strawberry recipes as I can.
Yes, that’s ALL strawberries pictured. In my yard.
It got out of control, but again, I am not complaining.
We wound up with two full buckets the first time we went out and picked and since then have wound up with about a pint a day.
My freezer is overflowing. LOL
Diet Coke can is for sizing purposes only.
However, that is what made choosing Leslie’s Fresas Con Crema (Strawberries and Cream) such an easy decision!
We loved how simple this recipe is.
It’s perfect for a quick dessert which we love because we are always busy and I never remember to make dessert.
Five teenagers and a toddler want dessert.
So of course, we must have dessert and it must be this Fresas Con Crema or Strawberries and Cream.
Leslie, we loved having your blog this month.
You have so many wonderful recipes that are simple and healthy and fun.
Perfect for my picky eaters, and great for me because they are not time consuming.
Thank you for such a fantastic recipe this month. I know we will be making this one again and again!

I am SO jealous of your garden with all those gorgeous strawberries! I can just imagine all of the wonderful strawberry treats you’ll be making this summer. I’m so glad you liked the Fresas con Crema! It’s my favorite go-to strawberry dessert.
It was fantastic Leslie, such an easy recipe and incredibly delicious! Every kid here loved it and I loved it because it was easy and super yummy and it helped me use some strawberries.
what a delicious dessert! can’t go wrong with strawberries 🙂
Wow. Your garden is producing some wonderful berries! This looks so good! I bet it was amazing with those fresh berries!
Renee, I feel extremely blessed this year to have so many strawberries. Blueberries are on their way next. All recipes taste so much better with fresh berries, I cannot agree more! xoxo
Isn’t picking your own strawberries so much fun. Such a nice looking recipe for the challenge.
Love picking our own strawberries right out of our yard this year. I keep passing all the signs for other places to pick strawberries and we don’t have to stop this year. It’s wonderful!
This looks fantastic. Pinned and tweeted.
Thank you so much Karen!
I echo Leslie’s comment – I’m totally jealous of your amazing strawberries! They’re gorgeous! And it was a fabulous idea to use them for this dreamy recipe. This would be the perfect dessert to cap off a light summer meal.
I just came across your post and blog for the first time this morning. I have a busy day ahead and am tasked with bringing dessert to a birthday party tonight, and they are picking strawberries down the street so this sounds perfect! I just wanted to say I love the family involvement and positive, loving way you describe everything, the pictures of other family members involved with picking…what a great family project in many ways! Thank you for sharing your recipes and family gardening-cooking endeavors with the public. I felt uplifted from just reading this blog and looking at your nice photos.
What a great project for a family, I just came across your blog this morning and love it! I really appreciate the positive, loving language you use and the family involvement in your photos. Thank you for sharing your cooking/ gardening adventures with the public in such a positive light. I felt uplifted just reading this blog post and seeing the pictures of your family working together outside and creating together. I have a full day ahead and am tasked with bringing dessert to a party tonight. I thought of fresas con crema because strawberries are being picked down the street from me right now and it is a quick dessert. Your/ Leslie’s recipe sounds perfect, I can’t wait to try it. Can you make it up ahead of time or should I wait until serving to add the strawberries?
Wow, that’s what I was looking for, what a data! existing here at this website,
