There were those days when my Little Cody Bear just doesn’t want to be put in his playpen, or even let him explore the house with his walker. Those were the days when he always wants me to carry him, take him to wherever I may go around the house. He weighs 11 kilos, well, almost a quarter of my weight and at the end of the day, I am exhausted!
Exhausted, but I’m happy. Yes. And that I always want to give myself a simple reward while I’m taking a rest and sitting on the couch. For a simple self-reward, strawberries will do. You know, I love strawberries, because aside from its yummy taste, it has antioxidants that are love by many beauty enthusiasts.
Strawberries are one of my go-to snacks. I also love to have it with Greek yogurt, ice cream, or with cream. Honestly, I have been eating strawberries and cream as a dessert and as a midnight snack lately and share it with hubby. It may sound like a routine, but I just really love eating it, especially on stressful days. As they say, it helps to fight wrinkles with its anti-oxidant properties.
Since I’m always looking for a new version or adding a new twist to food that I or we often eat at home, I came to the idea of using the Nestle La Lechera Dulce De Leche with strawberries. So, instead of the usual cream, I once tried to put some dulce de leche on top of strawberries for my snack after I put my baby boy to sleep. Trust me, it taste even better! It just made my day!
The second time I made some strawberries topped with Dulce De Leche, I shared it with my hubby. He’s a bit hesitant to take a bite when I told him to try it because he has no idea what’s on top of our fruit snack. That doesn’t surprise me because he’s a picky one, but I know he’s going to like it, and I’m right! He likes it, yay!
The preparation time to make strawberries topped with Dulce De Leche is very simple. First, you just have to wash the strawberries, after that you can start putting some Dulce De Leche on top of it using a spoon. Or, you can just prepare a small bowl of Dulce De Leche and dip the strawberries on it; all depends on your preference.
This is a perfect dessert or snack to try for someone who’s always on a hurry, especially for busy moms like me and for those who like strawberries. And oh, you can also serve it on the table on Dulce De Leche Day on the coming October 11th! How does that sound?
