  • 1 cup strawberries, quartered
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  1. Boil strawberries, salt, sugar, mint, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 10–15 minutes. Remove mint and allow to cool.
  2. Whisk together mascarpone, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Place in a Ziploc bag. Set aside.
