Strawberries and Chamomile Mint Cream

two Strawberries and Chamomile Mint Cream Parfaits overhead

Strawberries and cream is a summer essential. And strawberry season is my favorite time of year. It means summer is here, days last longer, and sweet delicious treats. You can do so many delicious things with strawberries. I love baking them into pies, chopping them on top of salads, basically adding them to all my recipes.

And at Eckert’s you can actually pick your own strawberries. This way you can pick all the perfect berries you want. Once you’ve picked your berries (or purchased them pre-picked in the shop) I have the perfect easy recipe for you and your friends and family this summer. It’s so tasty and easy but will definitely impress.

The final recipe will take under 20 minutes to put together, but you will need to start your recipe the night before (or at least 4 hours in advance).

Notes

– In advance: It might be a good idea to start making these the day before. You can prep your heavy whipping cream and your strawberries the morning before or night before. This will make this easier the next day.
– Substitutions: You can definitely swap out the whipped cream for ready made and you could swap out the graham cookies for other shortbread type cookies.
