Mixed Berries with Honey Maple Mascarpone |Healthy Dessert

A healthy dessert option for the summer with fresh mixed berries and topped with a slightly sweet Honey Maple Mascarpone Cheese.

Happy Friday ya’ll!!

Today is a special day because myself and couple of bloggy friends have decided to get together and throw Cathy over at Lemon Tree Dwelling a Virtual Baby Shower!

Virtual-Baby-Shower

What does a virtual baby shower look like?

Well, normally for a baby shower you would have people bring food/snacks to eat and then gifts for the guest of honor.

So, today we are bringing Cathy food… and LOTS of it! The gift is that you click on over to Cathy’s site and congratulate her on her upcoming arrival. {while your there check out some of her recipes, she has definitely got some awesome food over there}

Mixed Berries with Honey Maple Mascarpone 5

The food I decided to bring to this Par-tay today was a dessert option. But ya know, when your pregnant, you also have to be health conscious because everything you eat that baby eats! Motherhood starts as soon as that baby is forming in your belly not when the baby comes out.

This Mixed Berry dessert with Honey Maple Mascarpone is the perfect slightly sweet snack to satisfy that “get-me-a-32oz-chocolate-fudge-shake-or-else” feeling. It has just the right amount of sweet from the maple and honey added into the mascarpone. The creaminess from the mascarpone goes perfectly with the fresh berries and then paired with raw sliced almonds makes this a home-run dish for any dainty baby shower, fun summer bbq party, or just a weekend treat!

To get started, wash 1 pint of raspberries, 1 pint of blueberries, and 1 pint of blackberries.

Once clean put them in a small bowl and toss together. In a small bowl mix 8 oz. of mascarpone cheese, 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of raw honey, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

      Thanks Cindy! It was so easy to make. Love thinking up healthy things for people to eat and for a pregnant person this is a totally guilt free dessert. Thanks for the pin!

      Thanks so much Cathy, it was all for you and totally made this thinking.. okay if I was pregnant what sweet treat would I want and not feel guilty about eating. :)

      So happy to hear that you loved your surprise, you are basically awesome and deserved it! :) Happy baby shower!

      Oh girl… totally understand!!! The more healthy desserts the better, especially when pregnant. Although, I’m pretty sure you are probably the cutest pregnant lady ever!

    This looks delicious. I love berries (can’t wait for berry season to arrive), and your topping looks like it would make it the perfect dessert bite. I haven’t used mascarpone before, but it seems it’s an ingredient I should try. Pinning.

    This looks gorgeous Krista! I love that you made a healthier sweet treat for Cathy – the berries look so pretty and refreshing – definitely perfect for a baby shower! Pinning :)

      Thanks so much Kelly, I figured when I was pregnant I always wanted something sweet but didn’t want to go out and get a big old shake. This was light and sweet. :) Thanks for the pin girl!

    Berries with mascarpone has always been my favorite dessert. As a child, I never liked chocolate (I know, shocker) so I always requested this simple dessert. It’s so flavorful and healthy at the same time. Pinned and making soon!

    • says

      What?!? Crazy girl, you are like my brother. He always preferred berries and such over chocolate. But after this dish I might be converting to the berries instead of chocolate theme too! YUM! Thanks for the pin girl!

    • says

      ohhh yeah! I can’t wait to go berry picking too. SO fun! Thanks for the sweet comments marlynn! Hope you have a great rest of the week!
