These whipped cream stuffed strawberries are stuffed with basil whipped cream – they’re an irresistible bite of summer.

I am crazy about these strawberries. It isn’t the first time that I have paired strawberries and basil, and it certainly won’t be the last time! I’m already brainstorming ways to hook these two up again. It is a match made in heaven!

These strawberries are fancy enough for a dinner party but easy enough to pop one in your mouth on a hot day when you’re craving something refreshing.

Whipped Cream Stuffed Strawberries with Basil

Yield: 20 strawberries
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

These strawberries are stuffed with basil whipped cream – they’re an irresistible bite of summer.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil
  • 20-25 medium to large strawberries (depending on size and how full you fill them)

Instructions

  1. Put large mixing bowl and whisk/wire beaters of electric or stand mixer in fridge or freezer to chill.
  2. Wash and dry strawberries. Cut off the tops of the strawberries and carefully hollow out a little of the inside using a paring knife. Also cut a tiny bit of the bottom off to create a flat surface.
  3. Whip cream using electric mixer (and chilled bowl/whisk) until it starts to stiffen. Add sugar and continue to beat on high-speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in basil very gently just until combined.

Notes

  • Best served immediately.
