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!
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 2 cups frozen raspberries (see notes)
- ½ cup sugar
- In a mixer, whip together the whipping cream, 1 tbsp sugar, and the vanilla. Set aside.
- In a food processor blend together the frozen raspberries and ½ cup sugar.
- Once the raspberries have been blended, fold them in to the whipping cream.
- Evenly distribute the dessert between 4-5 dessert cups or fancy glasses.
- Refrigerate until you are ready to eat them! (see notes)
- 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!
- You can use any type of fruit that you would like: strawberries, blueberries, mango.
- 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.
It doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious!
Have an inspired day!
