Grand Marnier Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy cream
1 ounce Grand Marnier liqueur
2 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar
4 oz of your favorite dark semi-sweet bar-grated chocolate
2 cups of fresh raspberry
2 cups of fresh blueberries
3 cups of fresh strawberries-sliced or quartered
1/4 cup Natural cane sugar
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest-grated lemon peel
In a large bowl combine berries, lemon juice, sugar and lemon zest. Gently toss everything together and let set. The mixture will naturally create a delicious syrup from the berries.
Now for the Grand Marnier Whipped Cream. In a chilled medium bowl whisk together the heavy cream, sugar and Grand Marnier liqueur. Whisk until the mixture becomes firm and forms what are soft peak. When finished whisking place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
Chef Huda’s Tips: Soft Peak is when the whipped cream is able to stand up on top of the whisk.
Now let’s make something Pretty and Delicious!
Place you berries in a bowl with a little syrup then top with your Grand Marnier whipped cream then grate your chocolate over your berries to finish this dessert. Now, all you have to do is Enjoy!
Chef Huda’s Healthy Tip: Berries are a delicious way to include vitamins C, vitamin A, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, folate and potassium. Blueberries are especially high in antioxidants which can promote healthy hair.
I don't believe this could ever be low-cal or low-fat unless you used Splenda or FF Cool-Whip (urgh! o_0 )
I didn't know coconut milk would whip! Thanks for the tip!
This looks awesome!
I wonder what the calorie content of this would be. The heavy cream and the sugar bothers me a bit. Is there anyway to substitute these ingredients for a lower saturated fat and calorie alternative and still get the same result?
Best thing about this post is she didnt add that
condescending "wash your hands" line. What are we, animals?
A good lactose free version of the whipped topping would be to use Coconut Milk. I put a can in the refrigerator overnight and in the morning I spoon the contents into a bowl, add a dash of cinnamon and blend like i would whipping cream. It comes out the same consistency and has a light coconut flavor. Deelish.
