My Mom made Strawberries Romanoff all the time when we were kids and we just loved it! She learned it in cooking school and since it was so simple to make, as a kid I made it all the time. Some people add orange zest or a splash of Grand Marnier but I think it’s perfect without. It’s easy to whip up and makes a great after dinner dessert. More light desserts you might enjoy are Strawberries and Cream, Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Strawberries as well as these Strawberry Squares.

Strawberries and sour cream

This easy dessert recipe can be whipped up anytime! Chances are, you make have the ingredients on hand. Some recipes call for adding heavy cream, orange zest or a splash of Grand Marnier but I like to keep it simple and make it exactly how my mom made it. Of course, if you wish to play around and make it your own, this is a great base!

Strawberry Romanoff Ingredients:

This easy dessert recipe is made with just three ingredients, so simple but good!

  • fresh strawberries, sliced
  • light sour cream, or you can use full fat plain yogurt
  • brown sugar, or a sugar-free brown sugar substitute

Can Strawberry Romanoff be made ahead?

You can make the sauce at least 1 day ahead, cut and assemble the strawberries the day you are going to eat them.

How To Make

Step 1. Start by making the cream by combining the sour cream and brown sugar. This can be made ahead refrigerated up to 4 days. This also makes a delicious fruit dip!

Step 2. Wash and hull the strawberries. It’s best to prep this the day you’re eating them so the strawberries are at their best.

  1. We call this german caramel in our home. We love making this. I serve the sour cream or yogurt on a plate and place a small scoop of the brown sugar on top. Kids then dip the berries in.

  2. Way back in the 70’s, I made strawberries romanoff with just a dash of orange extract. It was marvelous! I’m going to try it in this recipe.

    1. I was going to say that back in the early 80s we had grape romanoff on a flight and it had brown sugar but I saw another recipe today that they called romanoff but it had orange juice and no brown sugar. I wonder if how it was first made. The grape one was really good we use to make it at home after that but I haven’t made it in years. I might have to make this now.

  3. I can’t wait to try it. Thank you for all your easy healthy recipes. I have SkinnyTaste Meal Planner. I’m so happy with it, but it doesn’t have Weight Wacher Points and I can’t seem to find them on your website either. Please, can you help. I sent you an email. I would love a response. Thank you.

  4. I was able to get this down to ZERO personal points, using fat free greek yogurt, swerve brown sugar, and of course strawberries are always zero on WW. This is delish! WOW! For 80 calories, I was able to eat a cup of strawberries, 1/4 cup of greek yogurt, and swerve is always zero calories.

  5. This seemed odd to me, but I had all of the ingredients so I figured I would try it, and WOW, I’m glad I did! How delicious!

  6. I used nonfat Greek yogurt, swerve brown sugar and a dash of vanilla extract and it was delicious! Thanks for the love point dessert!

    Funny, an eternity ago, I worked in the kitchen at a country club and this was one of their desserts. I didn’t know it had a name. They also used blueberries.

  8. I havent tried this recipe yet but as kids my mom would make the same recipe using bananas instead of strawberries. It looks yummy!

  9. This is ridiculously easy and incredibly delicious! I’ve made several variations, including once as written, once subbing Greek yogurt, and once adding a splash of brandy. Thank you Gina!

  10. Delicious and so easy, I would never have thought the combination would work so well together.

  11. I used Swerve brown sugar substitute and it still turned out super delicious. What an easy and great dessert. Thank you!

  12. This is one of my favorite things EVER! I have been making it for years as an after-dinner treat. My secret: add a touch of almond extract.

  13. My mom used to make this when we were kids. Something she learned from working in the food industry. Delicious
