In the Kitchen with Sigona’s featuring Strawberries

Gourmet Strawberries & Cream

Carmelo presents his Gourmet Strawberries & Cream made with locally grown strawberries.

Greek yogurt adds a creamy, near guilt-free element to this dish, which is sweetened with agave and our secret ingredient: balsamic vinegar. Eat it as a snack or for dessert. Serves 4.

Berries:

  • 2 baskets fresh strawberries, stemmed and halved
  • 1/2 TBL agave nectar

Sauce:

  • 3/4 of 1 basket of fresh strawberries, stemmed
  • 1/2 TBL agave
  • 1/2 tsp aged balsamic

Greek Yogurt Plus:

  • 1 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, we recommend Fage
  • 1 TBL agave nectar

Garnish:

  • 4 mint sprigs

For the berries: Stir together, set aside

For the sauce: Add all ingredients to a blender, bullet blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

For the sweetened yogurt: Mix together the yogurt and agave. Put the mix in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm it up (optional)

Plating: Swirl a spoonful of the sauce on a plate. Place a scoop of the yogurt on top of the sauce and top with the sliced berries. Garnish with a mint sprig.
