Strawberry Sundae Day is the perfect opportunity to enjoy this delicious dessert.
History of Strawberry Sundae
The history of Strawberry Sundae Day is a little blurry, but it is generally accepted that the first strawberry sundaes were created in 1892 at the St. Louis World's Fair. There, an ice cream vendor named George Williamson scooped ice cream into a bowl and added a topping of fresh strawberries. The combination was an instant hit, and Williamson is credited with creating the first strawberry sundae.
A strawberry sundae generally consists of ice cream, whipped cream, and a topping of strawberries. While this may sound like a delicious and innocent treat, a typical sundae can pack in over 500 calories and 30 grams of fat.
If you're looking to enjoy a lighter sundae, there are a few things you can do to cut down on the calories and fat. First, choose low-fat or non-fat ice cream. Second, ditch the whipped cream in favor of a lower-calorie topping like fruit or chocolate sauce. And last, opt for fresh or frozen strawberries instead of those that are candied or covered in chocolate.
How to Make a Strawberry Sundae
Making a strawberry sundae at home is easy and only requires a few ingredients. Start with your favorite ice cream flavor and add a scoop to each bowl. Top the ice cream with fresh or frozen strawberries, and then finish it off with a dollop of whipped cream or your favorite sauce.
If you want to get really creative, you can also add other toppings to your sundae like chopped nuts, sprinkles, or chocolate chips. Just be sure to keep an eye on the calories if you're trying to watch your waistline.
