Balsamic Strawberries with Cream

Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream

These fresh strawberries are perfectly paired with a sweet and creamy layer of cheeses. Enjoy this sweet treat during June Dairy Month courtesy of Illinois dairy farmers like the Marcoot sisters and Wakeley family!



  1. Whip ricotta cheese, cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl using an electric mixer. Divide mixture into six serving goblets and chill. Combine vinegar and granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture lightly coats a spoon. Cool completely. Toss strawberries with balsamic syrup. Evenly divide strawberries into each goblet. Sprinkle basil ribbons on each. Serve immediately.
