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 (or sometimes a mixture of Stevia In the Raw Granulated Sweetener or Granulated Monkfruit Sweetener and a little brown sugar.) Of course you can also use regular brown sugar or another type of sweetener of your choice. Make this soon, while you can still get those ripe juicy strawberries that taste so good this time of year.

Easy Strawberries Romanoff
Easy Strawberries Romanoff are one of my best memories of working at Le Parisien Restaurant in Salt Lake City, and this easy summer dessert has been a hit with everyone I’ve made it for!
- 1 pound fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup sour cream (You can use light sour cream, but I wouldn’t recommend fat free)
- 1 T Golden Monkfruit Sweetener
- 1 T brown sugar
- Be sure to buy the reddest and ripest strawberries you can find for best flavor. Rinse strawberries, then cut big ones into fourths and smaller ones into halves.
- Put cut strawberries into a medium-sized bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream and sweetener, brown sugar, or a combination of the two.
- Taste for sweetness to see if you want to add more sweetener.
- Gently combine sour cream mixture with cut strawberries, divide into four small dishes, and serve.
You can use all Stevia/Monkfruit or all brown sugar, or any combination of sugar/ sweetener that you prefer. I sometimes use Stevia In the Raw Granulated Sweetener or Granulated Monkfruit Sweetener mixed with a little brown sugar.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Easy Strawberries Romanoff made with all Stevia or another approved sweetener, would be Phase two or three for the South Beach diet. This maybe be too high in carbs for traditional low-carb diets, although berries are lower in carbs than many fruits.
