- 1/2 pint Blueberries
- 1/2 pint Blackberries
- 1/2 pint Raspberries
- 1/2 lb Strawberries
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 Tbsp Allulose (optional)
- Dark Chocolate of your choice, for garnish
- Combine the heavy cream and allulose, if using, and whip to soft peaks. Set aside. There are 3 options to accomplish this:
a) PREFERRED: Using a whisk attachment on an immersion blender, whisk in a tall glass or cup (the taller the better to prevent splattering);
b) In a bowl using the beater/whisk attachments on a hand- or stand-mixer;
c) NOT RECOMMENDED: By hand, with a regular whisk (this takes a LONG time and will wear out your arm very quickly)
- Remove the leaves from the strawberries, cut into quarters, then cut the quarters in half. If the blackberries and raspberries are large, cut them in half.
- Option 1: Simply mix it all together and divide evenly between 3 serving glasses.
- Option 2: Evenly divide the beerries between 3 serving glasses, layering with equal amounts of whipped cream per glass.
- Using a cheese grater or vegetable peeler, grate the dark chocolate over the top of the berries & cream.
- Serve right away or store tightly covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. Any longer and the whipped cream will deflate and become runny.
