Berry Plate Dessert Recipe

For any meal from casual to elegant and memorable, a berry plate makes the perfect low carb dessert that appeals to a variety of tastes.

1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup blackberries

The beauty of this dessert is that each person can choose whatever they enjoy most, and it is INCREDIBLY healthy with lots of antioxidants.

Judge your carb counts by which berries you eat the most of. I include the ORAC units (antioxidant count) here too. Read the Antioxidant Berry Fruit and Vegetable Listing for more about ORAC units - you should be getting 3,500 a day in your diet. Each serving here is 1/4 cup.

Blueberries - 2,400 - 4.1g
Blackberries - 2,036 - 2.7g
Strawberries - 1,540 - 1.8g
Raspberries - 1,220 - 1.5g

You can also put whipping cream over the top if you want, at .8g per 2 Tbsp of cream. It works well too with low carb ice cream.
