The most popular low-carb dessert ever? It could be this one. A handful of berries with whipped heavy cream. It tastes delicious and takes only a few minutes to prepare.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 225 ml fresh raspberries or fresh blueberries or fresh strawberries
  • 23 cup 160 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. If you are using frozen berries, let thaw at room temperature. Fresh berries are also best if they are at room temperature.
  2. Whip the heavy cream fluffy, until soft peaks form. It should not get grainy or too firm. Add the vanilla towards the end.
  3. Serve immediately with the berries.

Tip!

Raspberries are low in carbs, while strawberries and blueberries contain more carbs. The nutrition calculation is based on raspberries (full fruits & berries guide).

    1 pinch vanilla? Not quite sure what that means. Most vanilla in the U.S. is in the form of liquid extract.

    I love all fresh fruits but trying very hard to cut the carbs with fruit on the LCHF way of healthy eating. I do have some now and again and it helps when we have fresh fruit growing in our back yard. We have several varieties of grapes, blackberries and red raspberries and apples. Thanks DietDoctor for all of the great recipes.

    I do this with frozen fruit and pour cream on top - leave it for a few minutes and it just like ice cream

    The net carbs says 6, but dietary fiber is 4. So net carb is 2?

    Thank you.

    Hi Crizza!

    No. Total Carbs 10 - Fiber 4 = Netcarb 6

    The net carbs says 6, but dietary fiber is 4. So net carb is 2?
    Thank you.

    Oh, because it is 2 servings? But if it was adjusted to one, then it would be 3 net carbs.

    The nutrition information already did the calculation, so I don’t need to do it myself?

    Hi Crizza!

    "Unfortunately" the nutrition information is per serving ... ( in this case two servings is 12 gram net carbs.)

    I have recently been diagnosed with very high blood pressure. I have had an ECG and all my bloods taken which they say are ok. However my bad LDL is 3.66 and my good HDL is 2.64 it gives me an overall figure of 6.4 which they say would be ok if my blood pressure wasn't so high as the ratio of bad to good is ok. I started cutting out all bread, rice, pasta and potatoes from my diet and following some of the high fat low carb recipes on your site over the last six months and I have gone from 64 kilos to 55 kilos in that six months. My question is does following this low carb diet increase bad cholesterol as well as good and if so can you make any diet recommendations as to how I can reduce the LDL.

    Thank you! Just ate that! Just berries with heavy cream. I was feeling terrible.. probably the keto flu. Maybe dropping my carbs TOO low. In twenty minutes I felt so much better and that combination went down very well. Have been having a hard time tolerating keto meals
