Red, White and Blue Berries and Cream

Celebrate the season with fresh summer berries and coconut whipped cream.

The easiest red, white and blue berries and cream for the 4th of July. With fresh summer berries and coconut cream, it's paleo, gluten-free, and dairy-free. |

This is the easiest red, white and blue berries and cream for the 4th of July. I made it with just three ingredients. The fresh summer strawberries and blueberries were so naturally sweet, I didn’t need to add anything to them — or to the coconut cream. This simple dessert is creamy, delicious and dairy-free.

If your berries are not quite sweet enough, you can always add a touch of vanilla and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup to the coconut cream. Sweetened or unsweetened, whipped coconut cream is wonderful with fresh homegrown berries.

I love serving something colorful and festive for Independence Day. Red, white and blue berries and cream is a perfect dessert to pair alongside something chocolate if you’re feeding a crowd (I recommend paleo brownies). And it’s great straight out of the fridge for breakfast!

    That looks so good! I love fresh berries and cream, and I love the coconut cream as a healthier alternative to regular cream. I am new to Paleo, so it’s nice to find easy dishes that I know I will love!
