Cupid’s Cloud…A Valentines Day Dessert

Valentines Day is 10 days away!
It kind of feels like we’ve been surrounded by the day since December 31 doesn’t it?

I love the whole sentiment of Valentines Day, so we do mark the day, but I don’t get too fussy over here.  The hubby gets a card if he’s lucky, hahaha!  I buy store bought Valentines for the kids (gasp), and there aren’t any boxes of chocolate for the big day (the kids get enough at school…I swear Valentines Day seems to have turned into Halloween as far as candy goes).  I do however, stock up on cinnamon hearts but that’s just because they’re the best!

Instead we like to do simple things like have a nice dinner together and celebrate with a little fancy dessert!

This dessert is so perfect for Valentines Day for the whole family.  It feels and looks fancy, but it isn’t!  In fact it will take you less than 15 minutes to make, and you can make it well in advance so it’s ready at dessert time.  No muss, no fuss.  Just a simple & delicious dessert.

It’s sweet, rich, fluffy and bursting with raspberry freshness!
Yum.  Like a little taste of summer sunshine in the middle of winter!

Let’s get started…you are only 4 ingredients to scrumptiousness!

Save Recipe


  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. In a mixer, whip together the whipping cream, 1 tbsp sugar, and the vanilla. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor blend together the frozen raspberries and 1/2 cup sugar.
  3. Once the raspberries have been blended, fold them in to the whipping cream.
  4. Evenly distribute the dessert between 4-5 dessert cups or fancy glasses.
  5. Refrigerate until you are ready to eat them! (see notes)


Things to Note: [br]- You can make this dessert in the early afternoon of the same day that you are going to eat it. That way it will be ready for dessert when you are! [br]- You can use any type of fruit that you would like: strawberries, blueberries, mango. [br]- I like to use frozen fruit for this because it doesn't get pureed down like fresh fruit does. But either type is delicious and works for this dessert.

Recipe from Chef Michael Smith

It doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious!

  16. I am making this for my valentine and family! So excited. =]

  17. If made pror to eating would you put in fridge or freezer ???

  18. This was easy to make and great….however the sugar granules throughout it take away from the texture. I would cut the sugar in half!

  19. Hi,
    I just made this, and loved how simple it was. I tasted it and it is like you said, delicious. My girls will love it. I used frozen strawberries in it, as I already had some in the freezer. Thanks for such a simple, elegant looking desert.

  20. With the vanilla, do you mean to use vanilla extract or from vanilla pods? Thanks.

  21. Thanks for coming to party with me … You were featured!! Stop by to grab a featured button :) xoxo- Ruthie

  22. This is so pretty! And sounds delicious. :)

  23. Looks so light and delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

  24. Absolutely delicious !!! Very quick and easy to make – I added more Raspberries and less sugar, to make it more tart and sharp, lovely after a rich dinner – Dinner guests thought it was so yummy – I served in small wine glasses, with a sprig of mint and a thin almond biscuit on the top :) As it was so yummy and easy to make I am going to try using other types of frozen berries – Thank you for this recipe :)

    A quick, easy, delicious dessert! I added a few raspberries and a piece of chocolate on top. Nice to look at, even better to eat!

  26. Hi!
    Thank you for sharing this!
    I borrowed one of your picture and refers to it in my blog. Hope that was ok!

    I didn’t even pull my food processor out to chop the raspberries, but instead used my Pampered Chef food chopper. The frozen berries were nicely chopped, but not pureed, and added a nice texture to the whipped cream. I’m also on a Keto-genic eating plan, and don’t eat sugar, so I substituted Swerve for the sugar. I’ve also used Stevia before and it is a wonderful dessert, which fits perfectly into my eating lifestyle!

  28. Thanks Jo-Anna for posting this. I was looking for a quick easy Valentines dessert for a Valentines dinner I’m having with my Christian Home group. I’m sure it will be a big hit.
