My favorite desert to serve when hosting people at my house is fresh whipped cream and berries. The fact that the cream was just whipped often has a novelty factor for my guests. Plus, I sweeten the cream with stevia, so the only carbs are from the berries. Lastly, it tastes amazing. Easy. Healthy. Tasty.
Be careful of what brand of stevia you buy. I use Sweet Leaf stevia because it is 100% stevia. Most brands are a blend of stevia and sugar alcohol, so read your label!
Berries are the fruits most heavily sprayed with pesticides. So, make sure the berries you buy are certified organic. I like to use blackberries.
16 oz heavy whipping cream (grass-fed, organic. I like the brand Organic Valley)
2-4 grams stevia (1 packet = 1 gram)
1 pint of organic berries.
Pour the cream in a bowl to mix. I use either a Kitchen Aid or a hand blender. Do not over whip the cream! This video shows how to whip the cream in a Kitchen Aid. As you are whipping the cream, sprinkle the stevia into the cream as it whips. Once whipped, scoop the cream into a small to medium sized bowl and place your berries on top. It’s that easy! Bon Appétit!
