Macerated Berries with Greek Yogurt Whipped Cream
by Jen Segal (

These juicy macerated berries are perfect for a summer dessert. Adding Greek yogurt to the whipped cream makes it a little healthier and adds a nice tang that’s delicious with the berries.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes, plus at least 30 minutes for berries to sit

Serves 6 one cup servings

Ingredients: Berries
1 lb strawberries, hulled and halved (or quartered if very large)
12 oz raspberries
12 oz blackberries
¼ cup granulated sugar

Ingredients: Whipped Cream
¼ cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup cold heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup Greek yogurt

In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup each of the strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Add the sugar and mash with a potato masher (or bottom of a ladle) until the sugar dissolves. Gently stir in the remaining whole berries. Let sit at room temperature, tossing occasionally, for about 30 minutes (or refrigerate for up to 2 hours).

Greek Yogurt Whipped Cream:
Place the sugar, cream, and vanilla in a large bowl. Using a hand mixer, beat at medium speed until the cream holds stiff peaks — a few minutes. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the yogurt until incorporated. Divide the berries among 6 serving bowls and spoon the cream mixture over top. If desired, double the cream mixture to have extra!
