Stop right there. I have to warn you that if you’re still in bathing suit mode, and are still hanging on to some hope that you’re going to make all the other girls jealous when you walk out to the pool with your perfect body, you need to turn away from the computer now. This is especially true if you’re like me and can justify that anything with fresh fruit in it is “healthy” and “non-fat.” If this is you, please leave this website immediately.
It doesn’t make things any better that this recipe is stupidly easy to make – oh, and if you add blueberries and strawberries it is the PERFECT dish for 4th of July – simple, delicious and color-coordinated.
Uggh, I know. I sucked you in, didn’t I? You’re gonna be eating this on July 4th with a big, flowy cover up over that not-perfect bathing suit body, aren’t you?
It’s okay. You’ll still be happy. I promise.
Swedish Creme with Berries
Recipe adapted from my Aunt, Sara Rainey
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
2 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a double boiler (or a glass bowl placed over a pot of water – either way), combine the cream, sugar and cornstarch and heat, stirring often, until the sugar has completely dissolved. The sugar should dissolve before it comes up to a boil.
Remove the mixture from heat and allow to cool. Beat in the sour cream and vanilla and chill. Serve over fruit.
