- ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract

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

The nutrition information already did the calculation, so I don’t need to do it myself?
"Unfortunately" the nutrition information is per serving ... ( in this case two servings is 12 gram net carbs.)
Heavy cream is not 0g carbs as it has lactose/milk sugar in it. Most serving sizes on nutrition labels are small enough that the manufacturers can round down. The 3g carbs are from the heavy cream.
It sounds like you have had quite the time working on getting into keto. Yes, you can omit fruits, berries and sweeteners! I highly encourage you to jump in with the free two week challenge it and follow it as written and see how it works for you.
Is the 125 ml of raspberries 10 raspberries? how much is it in grams please?
It is approximately 125 grams of raspberries.
Double cream is the usual equivalent of heavy cream or heavy whipping cream. You want that higher fat component.
are there differences in the sugar content of fruit internationally? On this site blueberries are stated as having 12 g carbs per 100 g. To me that really seems to much. I have consulted different lists now and the highest content I have found were 8 g per 100 g...ranging from 6 g to 8 g at most.
Not that I'm aware of. However, we use the USDA Food Database as our source for nutritional information.
I don´t quite understand: 80 ml whipping cream: does this mean 80 g???
Usually you measure food in g.
Thanks in advance.
With liquids, we usually offer ingredient quantity by volume. 80ml heavy cream is approximately 78g so in this case the volume to weight is close enough to call it a 1:1 ratio. That would not automatically be the case with other ingredients.
Yes, if you don't have ml measuring cups. In this case, the whipped cream is whipped and served on the side so it's not necessary to be 100% precise with the measurements.
