Instructions:

  1. Prepare all the ingredients.

Recipe FAQs:

What other berries can I use?​​

Feel free to use blackberries, blueberries, or raspberries. In fact, you can combine them with strawberries if you like. However, note that this will increase or decrease the number of carbs depending on what you choose.

Can this be a make-ahead dessert?​

Yes! If you’re throwing a party or small gathering, you can make keto strawberries and cream hours before the event. Just keep them in the fridge. The cold temperature will firm up the cream.

I’m allergic to dairy. Is there a substitute for heavy cream?​

Use coconut cream. It will still thicken when whipped but it won’t be as firm as heavy cream. However, it’s a great and healthy dairy-free alternative.
