Ingredients

  • 10 oz. 275 g cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp [35 g] erythritol (optional)
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp almond extract
  • 1¾ cups 425 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup 225 ml fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups 475 ml fresh strawberries

Instructions

Instructions are for 8 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix together cream cheese, vanilla extract, almond extract and sweetener, if you're using any. Mix until light and fluffy. Whip the heavy cream in a separate bowl until soft peaks form and gently combine with the cream cheese.
  2. Pour one third of the cream cheese mixture in a glass bowl. Cover with a layer of sliced strawberries. Add one more cream cheese layer, and cover with a layer of blueberries.
  3. Cover with the rest of the cream cheese mixture and decorate the top with sliced berries arranged to look like an American flag. Serve immediately.

Tip!

Yes, you can switch up the berries! Raspberries can sub in for strawberries. Blackberries can stand in for blueberries (and are lower carb, too). Go with you favorite flavors, or whatever is available in your market,

    Hi, I'm a paying member and I'm not American. I support your site because it's been a complete revelation and has helped me to revert my DT2 in two months time.
    I really follow your site daily and have found a lot of very informative content. It seems to me that the information is being directed to everyone, but I really do not appreciate those signs of American chauvinism in between the lines. I find it even repulsive…

    Try please to maintain an open view about the information and the public that is using the site.

    Thank you very much for your efforts!!!

    American chauvinism Sergio?

    Just arrange the strawberries and blueberries into a different pattern and call it the flag of the Netherlands

    This looks amazing, and I have everything on hand, yay!

    Sergio, July 4th is a holiday celebrated only in the US, re its independence from Britain. It's not a political statement from Diet Doctor. Are you also offended by Canada Day? German Unity Day? Cinco de Mayo? No? Then I promise you will get over this greivous insult. FYI, we Americans are not all gun-toting racists, I promise!

    Please find a hobby or other way to entertain yourself besides being offended by berries and/or holidays celebrated in other countries. Your health with be better for it. :)

    I might have to do this for a Friday evening desert. It looks so good, but will do without the sweetener.

    Among our recipes you will also find ones from France, Sweden, India, Thailand, Japan, Hungary and Mexico to name a few. If you have a great Dutch recipe to share with us, we would be happy and honored to make it and publish it here on our site.

    Best,

    I just made this but I put the "flag" on whipped cream atop a LCHF cheesecake to celebrate the 4th of July birthday of a girlfriend. It turned out great and so simple. Thanks for the inspiration.
