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.

  2. Can you sub greek yogurt for the sour cream? Will that make a huge flavor difference? I have a picky eater husband who hates sour cream but this looks delish!

  3. Delicious!! Thank you for your recipes. Everything I have made is outstanding!! I am on WW and your recipes are much better!!

    I love this! My mom used to serve strawberries from our California garden with a bowl of sour cream and a bowl of brown sugar for dipping –  yum! So many memories!

  5. I make a similar version with chobani plain yogart and a dash of vanilla. Low fat, low cal yumminess.

  6. Huge hit with everyone who tried it. Some people were hesitant, but that may have been because I mixed it in a bowl then stored it in the original sour cream container. ha ha ha.

  7. Your recipe looks wonderful and I hate to mess with anyone's recipe but can I substitute sour cream for Greek non-fat yoghurt and the sugar for maple syrup? Or would that spoil it, I don't want to do that please advise.

  8. I was craving something sweet after feasting on your skinny eggplant parmesan (wow, incredibly delicious!) and this effortless dessert completely satisfied without blowing my points. I had no idea that a few simple ingredients made such a tasty combination. I had mexican style sour cream and it was terrific. Thank you, Gina, your website is full of amazing recipes that I, as a self-proclaimed foodie giving WW a go, completely rely upon and have thoroughly enjoyed.

      Yes! Sour cream and greek yogurt taste so similar that I often substitute it…plus you get the probiotics! Can use coconut sugar in place of Brown sugar too!

  9. Delish! I can't believe how easy this is to make. We added blueberries and my family literally licked the dishes.

  10. I made this as a gluten free dessert for my mother in law's birthday. I quartered the berries into a pie plate, then poured the cream over the top right before serving, so everyone could take a scoop. Yum!

    It usually has a brown tint from the sugar, not sure why the photo didn't capture that but you did it right!

  12. This is super Yummy…but mine came out very brown in your pic it looks white did I do something wrong?

  13. Phenomenol as are all of your recipes i have tried so far…made it tonight for myself and the wife…was skeptical of the combo at first but yum!!and who can argue with 2 points lol!!I wasnt sure how the wife was going to like it as she has this amazing palate to be able to taste every season spice flavor etc in a food (she should have been some sort of food critic I swear) and she loved it!!We have tried the arroz con pollo, cuban black beans, asian glazed drumsticks, the chipotle rice, shrimp quesadillas with tomato avocado salsa and are just in love with the recipes so far as I just discovered the website about a week and a half ago…love the tomato avocado salsa with baked chips…ive had to make it 3 times this week for a snack at the wifes request. I am doing weight watchers and have been sharing your site and recipes with fellow weight watchers and just people in general…i almost feel like im not dieting using your recipes so thank you!!

  14. Oh my GOSH! WHO KNEW?? Making this for Valentine's dessert tonight but with a little hesitation… sour cream and strawberries???! And then I tasted it! WOW! Now, the problem is that I just want to eat the sauce! Great recipe. Thanks so much! Gloria

    I truly love this dessert and love that it's so easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand!

  16. I happened upon your site today and found this recipe. It was exactly what I needed! I am doing WW and have been struggling to find something to fill that sweet creamy craving. I have had strawberries Ramonoff of La Madeline bakery and loved it. As soon as I saw this recipe I popped into the kitchen and made it (so happy that I had all of the ingredients). Delicious! My 8 yr old daughter also took some to school for snack time. THANK YOU!

  17. Made this last night for a quick sweet fix for dessert and I used FF Sour Cream! It was delicious! I was licking the bowl clean 🙂

  18. I made this for dessert the other night, and my 2 year old ate it up and then started licking the cup to get the rest of the cream sauce. So good! Thank you for the great recipies 🙂

  19. Just stumbled across your website the other day….and this recipe intrigued me. So much, in fact, that I have made it 3 times! Love it!

  20. I made this with my six year old daughter this weekend. We ate it twice (Friday and Sunday) and enjoyed it so much. We even ate it out of champagne glasses as you showed. So fun and delicious!
