Cupid's Cloud

I made these yummy treat for our Valentine's Day dinner. I absolutely loved it. It was really simple to throw together. I love that it was so light and fluffy. Most of my kids really enjoyed it also. I mixed mine a little too much. If you just barely mix it, you get a really pretty white and pink swirl.

Cupid's Cloud - A Valentine's Day Dessert

1 cup whipping cream
1 tbsp sugar
½ tsp vanilla
2 cups frozen raspberries (see notes)
½ cup sugar

Instructions
In a mixer, whip together the whipping cream, 1 tbsp sugar, and the vanilla. Set aside.
In a food processor blend together the frozen raspberries and ½ cup sugar.
Once the raspberries have been blended, fold them in to the whipping cream.
Evenly distribute the dessert between 4-5 dessert cups or fancy glasses.
Refrigerate until you are ready to eat them! (see notes)

Notes
Things to Note:
- You can make this dessert in the early afternoon of the same day that you are going to eat it. That way it will be ready for dessert when you are!
- You can use any type of fruit that you would like: strawberries, blueberries, mango.
- I like to use frozen fruit for this because it doesn’t get pureed down like fresh fruit does. But either type is delicious and works for this dessert.
