What Is Fresas Con Crema? Is it Made With La Lechera?

This is a Mexican, no-bake dessert, made from sliced strawberries swimming in a sweet cream sauce. This dessert can be made with La Lechera or any other sweetened condensed milk.

What is Mexican Crema Made Of?

It is a thickened tangy cream similar to French creme fraiche, and American sour cream. I don’t use it in this recipe. I use sour cream instead, but it appears to be a popular choice.

Variations For Mexican Strawberries And Cream/ Strawberries With Cream/ Strawberries In Cream

Add whipped cream on top– You can use Homemade Whipped Cream or store-bought.

Use other fruits– Such as peaches, blueberries, or raspberries.

Use a combinations of other creams– Such as Media crema, heavy cream, whole milk, or Greek yogurt. Results will vary based on your cream choices.

Add lime juice– For a tangy and bright twist to compliment the sweetness.

Dice the strawberries– I usually slice them, but if you prefer cubes that will work just the same.

Tips And Techniques

Strawberries must be patted dry– This prevents the cream from becoming too thin and runny.

All ingredients should be cold– Because this dessert is served cold and best served cold.

Evaporated milk can not be replaced with condensed milk and vice versa– Evaporated milk is unsweetened milk and condensed milk is loaded with sugar to sweeten it. You want the sugary version for this recipe.

Fresh strawberries vs. frozen strawberries– I recommend fresh strawberries because frozen strawberries contain a lot of extra water that can make the cream runny. However, if frozen is all you have, then thaw and drain them before using them.

Storage

Refrigerate– In a sealed container for up to 2 days.

Freeze– You can freeze this dessert and eat it more like an ice cream, but I do not recommend freezing and then thawing it again to eat. The textures will be off.
