Berries & Cream

This is probably the most comforting way to eat berries. My personal favorite is blackberries, but any berry will do. I find it to be a little reminiscent of the warm milk and cookies before bed days. When I'm eating blackberries with sweet cream, I am usually in very snugly jammies, curled up on the couch and either reading or talking to someone I love. I'm not sure why it always turns out this way, but I think it has to do with the comfort aspect. Something about it just makes me feel at home and safe and peaceful. Just another way berries affect more than your taste buds!

Here's what you need:

1 cup heavy cream
2-6 tbs sugar, depending on your sweetness preference
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
A handful of your favorite berries, (you'll want to slice your straw berries if that's what your using)

In a small sauce pan pour in your cream and vanilla, heat on low. When the cream is warm at sugar and gently stir until sugar is dissolved. Continue to heat until the cream is not quite hot.
Put your berries in a bowl, and pour the warm cream on top. Now just curl up on the couch in your favorite PJ's and read a book.

We're nearing the end of Berry Week, there's just one more recipe to be posted and only 2 more days to enter my Huckleberry Haven Giveaway. I'm excited to see who will win!



  1. How can you not love berries with cream????? i love strawberry, raspberries and blackberries.

  2. I really like this recipe because we are putting in a home orchard and growing berries. I am having a time trying to grow blueberries. I havent given up yet but I can see using this recipe with fresh berries from our bushes.
