Fresh Berries and Cream

You don't expect to find fresh berries in the market this time of year, but there they were, like little jewels bursting with sweetness.  Years ago I went to a lunch with a friend of mine at a very upscale restaurant.  Desert was brought to us in a beautiful glass filled with berries and cream.  It was light and oh so tasty.  I asked the waiter if he knew the recipe for the cream and after looking both directions leaned down and whispered......

Berries and Cream
Yogurt....Sugar....Whipping Cream....Vanilla .  I have since played around with these ingredients and have found that 2 yogurts (either vanilla or berry flavored), 2 Tbls. of Sugar, 1tsp. vanilla and 1/2cup whipping cream mixed with a whisk seems about right.  It works just as well as a breakfast treat and is a family favorite.  Bon Appetit!
