Unlike whipped cream, this whipped mascarpone can be prepared in advance which makes it a perfect dessert for dinner parties!
In a stand mixer, add mascarpone, granulated Splenda, heavy cream and balsamic vinegar. Balsamic vinegar is the one vinegar that actually contains carbohydrates, because of the sugar content. But as it works out to only half a tablespoon per serving we can get away with it here! Also, if you are hesitant about using Splenda then I would recommend trying this recipe – there really is no noticeable aftertaste and it does keep the carb count much lower.
Whisk the mixture until it is stiff. Transfer to a serving dish, cover in cling wrap and store in the fridge until required. This flavored cream works really well with berries – particularly strawberries! You could either put one large serving dish in the middle for everyone to help themselves or provide individual portions.
The whipped mascarpone doesn’t taste of vinegar at all – it has just a very interesting flavor that your guests will love!
