The Berries:

  • 6 cups mixed berries (if using strawberries, slice them) I used strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated organic sugar or natural sweetener of your choice (see link to Lankanto above)

The Sour Whipped Cream

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup organic powdered sugar, or natural sweetener of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract


Making berries:

  1. Place all berries in a large bowl and stir until mixed, remove 1/3 of the berries, place in a smaller bowl and add orange juice and sugar. Use a fork to smash berries and mix sugar

  2. Pour smashed berries over the berries in the big bowl and stir well. Let sit on the counter for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally and watch the magic happen

To make cream:

  1. Place heavy whipping cream, sour cream, sugar and vanilla into a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer or whisk to mix until cream thickens and peaks form

Serving suggestions:

  1. Plate berries, top with cream! Or pour over scones, cake, ice cream, waffles...whatever you wish!
