Strawberries Romanoff are one of my best memories of working at Le Parisien Restaurant in Salt Lake City, and this is always a hit! And berries have less sugar than other fruits, so if you use the sweetener I recommend this is surprisingly low in carbs!
When I keep noticing ripe juicy strawberries every time I go to the market, I start thinking about Strawberries Romanoff, a dessert that I learned to make in college when I worked at a French restaurant in Salt Lake called Le Parisien. The restaurant closed in 2001, but I have great memories of the place, and Strawberries Romanoff was one of their signature desserts.
The restaurant served the strawberries with small bowls of sour cream and brown sugar for dipping, but through the years I developed a preference for whisking the brown sugar and sour cream together and mixing it with the cut strawberries. Now that I’m not eating much sugar, I make this with sour cream and Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) which is still really tasty!
Of course berries are lower in sugar than many other fruits, so if you use the Golden Monkfruit Sweetener this is actually pretty low in carbs, but go ahead and make it with brown sugar if you don’t care about that. But make this soon, while you can still get those ripe juicy strawberries that taste so good this time of year.
How to Make Strawberries Romanoff:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- You need juicy ripe red strawberries for the best flavor. If you can get locally grown strawberries, even better.
- Cut the strawberries into halves or fourths to make same-size pieces.
- Then whisk together the sour cream and Golden Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link) or other sweetener of your choice.
- Gently combine the sour cream and sweetener mixture with the strawberries. That’s it!

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Easy Strawberries Romanoff made with an approved sweetener, would be Phase two or three for the South Beach diet. And berries are lower in carbs than many fruits and this is surprisingly low in carbs when it’s made with sweetener, so it’s great as a treat even for traditional low-carb diets, although maybe not for Keto.
