This is the easiest red, white and blue berries and cream for the 4th of July. And you can make it with just three ingredients. Fresh summer strawberries and blueberries are so naturally sweet, you don't need to add anything to them or to the coconut cream. This deliciously 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. This post includes affiliate links to the products I recommend for this recipe.

And to make this dessert super quick to whip up, keep a can of coconut milk the refrigerator. That way it's ready to go whenever you want to make coconut whipped cream.
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 if you have any left over, it's great straight out of the fridge for breakfast!
