Fast Dessert: Strawberries & Homemade Whipped Cream

by Texas Homesteader ~

Who doesn’t love dessert? We don’t have dessert every night of course but my handsome RancherMan does have a sweet tooth. Sometimes we like light & fluffy desserts like strawberries & whipped cream.

Other times we enjoy a heavier dessert. It’s not unusual for me to have homemade brownies or even apple pie. Or depending upon how hectic the day was I might take a shortcut and make something easy like homemade chocolate pudding.

A delicious dessert need not take lots of time or effort. Heck one of our favorite desserts is strawberries & fresh whipped cream. Dessert in a flash!
