Mixed Berries and Cream
It is no secret that I do not like berries, or at least didn’t. I was allergic to strawberries when I was younger and pretty much stayed away from ALL berries.
Then as an adult, the thought of berries just grossed me out. I decided to give them a try this past weekend and, well, they aren’t so bad.
Baby steps – blueberries and raspberries!
This is a super simple dessert that only takes a few minutes.
People are always searching for quick, easy, and last minute dessert ideas and this is the perfect fit for that!
But let’s get to the REAL question at hand, shall we?
Are Berries Keto?
YES! Lots of people miss fruit when following a keto lifestyle, but most don’t know that berries are perfectly keto friendly.
The most keto friendly berries are raspberries, strawberries and blackberries, followed closely by blueberries
Now, I’m not suggesting that you sit down and eat an entire bowl of fruit, but having a 1/4 cup of berries daily is no problem at all and can actually be very healthy!
Is Whipped Cream Keto Friendly?
Whipped cream made from heavy whipping cream without no sugar added is most certainly keto friendly.
My standard keto whipped cream recipe contains heavy whipping cream, some Lakanto monk fruit and a little vanilla.
How Do I Store Berries and Cream?
I would suggest eating it when you make it. Non processed whipped cream will start to thin out when left in the fridge.
The same will happen with this dessert. That is why there are only 2 servings. You could even cut the recipe and only make a single serving if you want!
How Many Carbs in Keto Berries and Cream?
That all depends on which berries you use. I calculated the nutrition for this recipe using mostly raspberries so it will be higher if you use mostly blueberries, for example.
For blueberries only, it comes out to be 2.5 net carbs and less if you use raspberries, strawberries or blackberries!
