Ingredients & Substitutions

Without sour cream, make fresas con crema. I prefer alternatives to it in most recipes. Media crema (Mexican table cream) and condensed milk provide the flavor without sour cream.

Fresh strawberries
1 can media crema (substitute Mexican crema or evaporated milk)
sweetened condensed milk
1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, plain yogurt, or Crème fraîche.
Vanilla essence

Cream cheese replaces Greek yogurt. This recipe may prefer a denser texture. So good!

Perfect Fresas Con Crema
Cool stuff! Before creating the dish, refrigerate the cans and strawberries.
Strawberry picking: The best strawberries are bright red, shiny, and have fresh green crowns. Refrigerate and wash your berries before serving.
Rinsing strawberries: Rinse berries in lukewarm water without removing stems. Blot or air-dry them using a paper towel.


Table cream or heavy cream?

Table cream, a low-fat cream, makes savory and sweet meals creamy and delightful. Heavy cream has 36% milk fat. Homogenized, pasteurized, or ultra-pasteurized.

What can replace Mexican crema?

Plain Greek yogurt or crème fraîche are good alternatives.

Fresas con crema: how long?

Refrigerate tightly for up to 4 days.
