24 ounces fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and chopped

6 tablespoons sugar, divided, plus more to taste

2 teaspoons fresh juice from 1 lemon

1 cup chilled heavy cream

1/4 cup Greek-style yogurt

1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Place half of the strawberries and 3 tablespoons sugar in small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until berries have softened and slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice; add sugar to taste. Chill completely before using, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, stir together remaining strawberries and 3 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl. Chill, stirring occasionally, until berries have released some of their juice, about 30 minutes. Whip cream to soft peaks. Gently fold in yogurt and vanilla until combined. Reserve 1/4 cup whipped cream for garnish. Fold chilled strawberry compote into whipped cream. Spoon strawberry cream into glasses alternating with macerated strawberries. Top each with 1 tablespoon of the reserved whipped cream. Serve chilled.
