My New Dessert Addiction

I love desserts! All desserts. But the high sugar and flour in some classic desserts makes them a rare indulgence. Here is a dessert you can feel good about eating often. Blueberries have been shown to have health benefits such as decreasing the risks of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and heart disease. See the below link to the University of Michigan study for some additional reading on their benefits.

Homemade Whipped Cream
I find homemade whipped cream to be so much creamier and fresh tasting then the store bought varieties. I think you'll find it's  worth the effort to make it yourself.

Heavy Cream, maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup
A few drops of vanilla extract
Your favorite sweetener. I used Truvia stevia packets.
A mixer

Add your ingredients to a mixing bowl and beat until peaks form. Check for taste and adjust the flavoring as needed. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or other flavored extracts can substitute for the vanilla extract. Spoon gently over fresh berries.


  1. I live next to a blueberry farm! I have a freezer packed full of berries. I eat them just about every day for breakfast, either in my cereal, yogurt or oatmeal :)

  2. You are so lucky! It's a bit of a drive for me but sometimes I go to one in Yalaha by the bakery. They rarely make it to my freezer.
