There's nothing quite so delicious as a ripe strawberry, especially in the summer when berries are bursting from the grocery store shelves and farmer's market stands. But as fans of classic strawberries and cream know well, go a little too heavy on the cream and these healthy berries can turn into a high-fat diet disaster.
