Stuffed Strawberries

DSC_0001Fresh berries are so fun!! 


I love these because berries are the main attraction, not just a garnish.  It’s basically glorified strawberries and whipped cream, so delicious.



How about with a blueberry on top?  Wouldn’t you like to take these to your 4th of July BBQ??



Stuffed Strawberries

Strawberries: How many exactly depends on how big the strawberries are, and also how much you fill them.  I used about 40 average size strawberries

Blueberries, if you want them!

1 small package (4 servings) Instant Vanilla Pudding

1 Cup Whipping Cream

1 Cup Milk

1/2-1 tsp (to taste) almond extract

  • Start by hulling the strawberries DSC_0003
  • Then starting at the small end of the strawberry, make a slice most of the way down DSC_0007 DSC_0005
  • Now make a perpendicular slice.  You don’t want to do down too far, because then the strawberry might break, but far enough to make room for the filling.
  • I set them on a plate, and pull the strawberries open a little bit

  • Now the filling: whip the 1 C cream until stiff (but not dry) peaks form
  • While whipping, in another bowl, whisk the pudding into the 1 C milk
  • Add the 1/2 tsp+ almond extract into the pudding, then fold in the whipped cream until it is completely combined
  • Pipe the filling into the strawberries
  • Go ahead and laugh! One day I’ll learn how to pipe with my left hand
  • I used a 1M star tip, but you totally don’t have to. and in the video, it doesn’t open the strawberry evenly, so, with your other hand, try to hold the 4 points of the strawberry open so that it fills evenly.
  • Arrange on a plate/tray and top with blueberriesDSC_0020
