IMG_0244 This dessert takes advantage of the berries in season, a yummy cake (your own or store bought) and a twist on whipped cream. It’s easy and always a hit!
Simply take your favorite berries, wash and slice if necessary. Squeeze the juice of one lime, add two or three tablespoons of your favorite sweetener-preferably honey or agave, and then roughly chop four or five mint leaves.  Let this macerate for several hours.

To prepare the dessert,  take a store bought pound cake or angel food cake, or bake your own. We made an orange pound cake-very yummy and it added a different flavor to the dessert.  Slice the cake and cut into cubes.

Place the cake cubes in the bottom of a dessert dish and spoon your juicy berries over the cake.

The final touch is coconut whipped cream. Unfortunately, our photo shows what the cream should not look like because I bought the wrong can.  You need to use coconut cream (Trader Joe’s is a good one),  do not use coconut milk or cream of coconut.  It helps to use a cold bowl to mix the cream and you must use cold coconut cream. In you mixer place the solid part of the liquid, add 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and a dash of vanilla.  Be patient, it will take a little longer to whip than dairy whipped cream. Once you have whipped cream, top your dessert with this yummy goodness and enjoy!

Happy Baking,
