Method: 

Core and trim the strawberries. Slice three berries in half and set them aside for garnish. Purée remaining strawberries with sugar and mint leaves in a food processor. Transfer to a large bowl. In a mixer or with a wire whisk, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold yogurt into cream.

Taste berries and add more sugar if desired. Fold cream-yogurt mixture gently into berries until completely combined. Spoon mixture into 6 dessert glasses and garnish with strawberry halves and mint leaves.
