How to Make Whipped Mascarpone Cream with Balsamic
In a stand mixer, add mascarpone, granulated low carb sweetener (eg Lakanto or granular Swerve), heavy cream and balsamic vinegar. Balsamic vinegar is the one vinegar that actually contains carbohydrates, because of the sugar content, so usually it's off limits. But for a special treat this combination of flavors is really worth a try!
Update! Check out my new recipe for zero carb balsamic vinegar! It's perfect for this recipe!
Beat the mixture until it is stiff. Transfer to a serving dish, cover in plastic 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.
And in case you were wondering this whipped mascarpone doesn't taste of vinegar at all – it has just a very interesting flavor that your guests will love!
