Us low carbers that are opting out of artificial sweeteners get jack squat when it comes to desserts. On the other hand, the desserts we do get to enjoy are fairly simple, which is nice too.
And this one is tasty. The sweetness of the berries, and the freshness of the sage, mixed with the creamy, rich flavor of mascarpone make this taste like a delicacy, and almost a little bit like vanilla bean ice cream.
Usually in the summertime, I’m the fruit salad girl, always carving up a watermelon and filling it with every seasonal fruit I can stuff it with. This year I want to stick to tradition, but with something keto-friendly. And my new favorite ingredients are mascarpone cheese and sage, so I started there.
This recipe is one serving so that it can be easily modified to howevermany you want to serve. It’s super quick to mix up and have as a nice dessert, or you can multiply it by twelve and make it a party!
- 1 cup of mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
- 1 sage leaf, chopped
- 2 tbsp mascarpone
- 1/2 vanilla bean (scoop out the inside)
- 1/2 tbsp heavy cream
- In one bowl mix berries and chopped sage.
- In another bowl, mix together mascarpone cheese, vanilla bean pulp and heavy cream.
- Microwave cream mixture for 10 seconds and mix.
- Add cream to mixed berries and enjoy.
