A mid-summer’s cream dream

We are literally living on blueberries, strawberries and salad at BNI towers. So why not big up your berries with something indulgent? A little weight gain during lockdown is not an issue right now.

In fact I withdraw my previous statement. Strawberries are not indulgent. They are in season and, as a fantastic source of vitamin C, our secret weapon in fighting colds and flu.

The berries are packed with vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and more. The heart-shaped silhouette of the strawberry is the first clue that this fruit is good for you. These potent little packages protect your heart, increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.

According to Wikipedia: “The strawberry is not, from a botanical point of view, a berry. Technically, it is an aggregate accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant’s ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries.[4] Each apparent “seed” (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it.”

Fresh strawberries and cream signal the start of summer and this year as the weather hots up, supermarket Aldi is giving the classic cream a modern-day twist with its limited-edition Extra Thick Strawberry & Prosecco Cream (£1.49 for 150g), and it’s cheaper than M&S’ recently-launched strawberry-flavoured clotted cream.

Combining prosecco, cream and strawberries – the iconic summertime favourites into one – this 100% British fresh cream, created exclusively for Aldi, is available in stores across the UK now.

Indulge in heavenly dollop after dollop of the prosecco and strawberry flavoured cream with warm and cold desserts or scoop a generous helping onto Aldi’s Specially Selected British Strawberries (£2.69, 400g) – the choices are endless.

Aldi’s Extra Thick Strawberry & Prosecco Cream is available in stores now, while stocks last.
