Add chilled cream and vanilla in a big bowl.
Whip the fresh cream till it fluffy and forms soft peaks.
Spoon the strawberries into a serving bowl.
Top with fresh cream and serve.
Add a bit of powdered sugar, about 1-2 tsp to the cream before whipping it if you prefer sweeter desserts.
Add a dash of your favourite liqueur to the strawberries. I like to add Cointreau or Grand Manier.(about 2 oz).
Use pouring cream if you don't want to serve whipped cream.
Top it up with chopped nuts, dark chocolate chips, fresh mint, etc.
