When you decide to follow a keto diet, or even a low carb, high fat diet (LCH), some previously forbidden foods get to make their way back into your life. Real whipped cream is one of those foods. And blackberry whipped cream kicks things up a notch. Top PB & Whey Killer Whey! Keto Ice Cream with Blackberry Whipped Cream and you have yourself an amazing low carb dessert.
Real whipped cream is one of the simplest desserts to make. It literally takes just a few minutes and will dress up any dessert. Never, ever use Cool Whip! So many chemicals! Homemade whipped cream is just heavy whipping cream beaten with a mixer on high until stiff peaks form. That’s it, nothing else. I guess you could make it by hand, but honestly, that’s a lot of work - or you could think of it as an opportunity for a workout. But using a stand mixer or hand mixer is much easier and faster.
Traditional recipes will have you add sugar to the heavy whipping cream before you beat it, but you don’t need the sugar. I like to add real vanilla extract instead. The vanilla flavor adds enough sweetness that the sugar isn’t needed. I use about a teaspoon of vanilla for one cup of heavy whipping cream. And I always figure that since I’m generally using the whipped cream as a topping for something already sweet, I don’t need to add any extra sugar.
One of my favorite desserts is whipped cream with fresh berries. Whipped cream is so rich, you really don’t need much. The sweetness of fresh berries with the richness of the whipped cream is just heavenly.
For this dessert, I decided to go ahead and mix the blackberries right in with the whipped cream. I handmashed the berries in a small bowl with a fork and then mixed them in with the whipped cream just as it was starting to form stiff peaks. Once the whipped cream was ready, I folded in more mashed berries to add some swirls of color.
And then you use the blackberry whipped cream as a topping for PB & Whey Killer Whey! Keto Ice Cream. The flavor combo is out of this world -like chocolate peanut butter and jelly. So good! You can use the whipped cream as a topping for any Killer Whey! keto/lchf or protein ice cream. And you don’t have to add blackberries. You can use any kind of berries. Or if you just do the vanilla, it goes with everything. I like to add any leftovers to my coffee. Enjoy!
