Strawberry Basil + Coconut Cream

You guys, I am so excited to share this completely easy and oh so delicious recipe with you. So easy I feel slightly ridiculous writing about it. However, I just cannot hold out any longer. You must know about it. Because when I made this, I ate the whole thing, in one sitting. I'm not proud of that. Ha! But it was good. Go out now, buy strawberries. They are in-season, and the best you will eat all year.

Oregon strawberries are my absolute favorite. Deep red and so juicy!

1 tablespoon maple syrup

In a large bowl, combine strawberries, sugar and basil leaves. Stir together a few times, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 30-40 minutes until juicy.

To serve, spread coconut cream over plate or bowl, top with juicy strawberries and basil. Drizzle maple syrup over top with a pinch of flaky sea salt, if desired.
