Here is a super easy strawberry snack. Wait, easier than actually just eating a strawberry? Well, no. But it IS still easy. And super delicious. I’ve learned something about myself over the years. I see it as a skill. Not one that you would ever really need. And it doesn’t do your waistline any favors. I have the innate ability to take a food and figure out how to make it as unhealthy as possible. This can mean taking something unhealthy already and making it more delicious and amazing (thereby making it way more unhealthy, remember these lazy nachos?). But I’ve noticed I do it with perfectly healthy items too. Take for instance, the strawberry. A perfectly fine piece of food on its on. With its juicy sweetness and bright bold color, I should be fine, happy even, to eat it in its natural form. But this is how I often eat my strawberries. With…are you ready…SOUR CREAM and brown sugar. What the!?! Full disclosure, my close friend Lisa actually turned me on to this one when we worked in catering for a hotel together. And that was a good 10 years ago. And I’ve never forgotten it.
Would you try this? I’ll be honest, I only just really started on the whole sour cream train a few years ago. But there is something about the tanginess mixed with the brown sugar and strawberry that just makes your mouth so happy.
Try it. Then serve it to your closest friends. The ones who eat just as much junk food as you do and don’t judge you for it. The people who you plan all your meals out in advance with before heading out on a girl’s trip to maximize the dining possibilities. The ones who are fine to see you in your “fat” pants after you have eaten too many strawberries dipped in sugar. If you even question the reaction you may get from a friend it is best to not introduce them to fat strawberries (I didn’t really intend to name them that but it has a nice ring to it, fat strawberries). You’ve been warned. Happy eating.
