Recipe Notes

You may serve the labneh sprinkled with olive oil, salt and pepper if desired.

I did not use any sugar as my strawberries were sweet but you may add some sugar while crushing the strawberries.

The original recipe used a tablespoon of honey in the labneh but I skipped, as always you may add the desired amount of sweetener into it.
