Ingredients

1 dozen fresh strawberries, washed

Small melon scoop

White ceramic plate

3 ounce box, blueberry Jello

Fresh blueberries

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon fresh lime zest

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

Fresh mint, chopped

Chopped Macadamia nuts

White chocolate chips

 

Strawberries

Directions

Make blueberry Jello according to box instructions but don't refrigerate.  

 

Cut a thin slice off of the bottom of each strawberry so they will stand up.  Do not cut too much off or jello will drain through. Cut off the top of strawberries and scoop out the insides, again being careful not to dig too deep or you will make a hole in the bottom.  

 

Place strawberries on a plate and place 2 blueberries in each one. Fill each strawberry with Jello and arrange on plate.  Pour remaining jello onto plate to surround strawberries.  Place in refrigerator and chill until Jello is firm.

 

Pour cream into a medium sized bowl and add powdered sugar.  Beat cream on high speed until peaks form.  Add lime juice and lime zest and mix well.  

 

Dollop each strawberry with lime whipped cream, sprinkle with Macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips and mint.
