This refined sugar free whipped cream is a lovely way to dress up desserts for special occasions. It’s sweetened only with date paste so it’s ideal if you’re trying to avoid regular white sugar.
Years ago some visitors brought over a lovely peach pie and a carton of heavy cream to make freshly whipped cream to serve with the pie. I didn’t have any sugar to put in the whipped cream but didn’t want to disappoint my guests, so I improvised and used maple syrup to sweeten the cream instead. It turned out great.
Refined Sugar Free Whipped Cream – Key Ingredients & Substitutions
It occurred to me that if maple syrup works well in whipped cream, maybe date paste would too. I gave it a try and it was delicious. Date paste is higher in fiber than maple syrup and contains plenty of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants so it seemed like a better choice to me.
If you’d rather not use date paste you can substitute can maple syrup or raw honey in this recipe and the results are good too. I just prefer the taste of date paste so that’s what I generally opt for.
