Imagine big soft white clouds.
Now imagine them at the end of the day, when the setting sun gives them a lovely red tinge.
Now imagine them strawberry flavored!
Just like this dessert, they are Strawberry Clouds!
Light, airy, delicate and with just the right amount of sweetness. Perfectly balanced by the roundness of the whipped cream.
The perfect dessert for a summer dinner party, or for a Sunday brunch.
A sugar-free treat!
We all need and deserve a sweet treat sometimes!
The only problem with this fact is that sugar and carbohydrate consumption has reached staggering proportion in the world. We consume at least 300 calories a day more from carbs ONLY compared to 40 years ago, while fat and protein consumption as stayed almost the same.
This sudden change in diet had brought dire consequences for the health of the people. Just look at the statistics for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, etc. These are all degenerative diseases that originate in a bad diet and are preventable.
As a nutritionist it is my duty to look out for your health. I do it for my patients and I do it for my readers!
As a cook, I incorporate my knowledge of nutrition to create delicious treats that are not bad for you.
This one is especially dear to my heart, as it came out delicious and won't leave you feeling ill from a sugar high and sudden crash. I hop you enjoy!

I get all of my vanilla beans and other vanilla goodies from Beanilla. I've tried a ton of brands of vanilla and vanilla beans and Beanilla is by far the best quality I've found! Make sure you check out their Bean Bucks Rewards program so you can save on future orders.
Important Note On Gelatin Types
When it comes to gelatin, you don’t want any old gelatin off the supermarket shelves. You want to look for 100% grass-fed gelatin from healthy animals. Just like other animal products, quality is important.
That is why I recommend Vital Proteins Grass-Fed Gelatin products and Perfect Supplements products exclusively. I have compared these brand with other brands on the market and the quality far surpasses anything else I’ve tried. I am thrilled to be one of their affiliate partners and support such great products and companies.
Perfect Supplements offers a grass-fed hydrolyzed collagen (cold-soluble) right now and has a gelatin (hot-soluble) in the works for 2016. Read my review of their product here or watch the video below. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon here.
- 1 pound fresh organic strawberries
- 2 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin (I love Perfect Supplements and Vital Proteins - SEE NOTE ABOVE)
- 2 organic pastured egg whites
- 2 tablespoons Vanilla Extract
- 1 gram Stevia Powder
- 1 cup organic heavy whipping cream (you can also use this Aroy-D coconut cream - it's thick, rich, and the perfect sub for dairy cream)
- Beat the egg whites with an electric or hand whisk until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
- Wash and trim strawberries.
- Put the strawberries in a blender and puree them until completely liquified. Add the vanilla and stevia.
- In the meantime, in a small sauce pan heat ¼ cup of water to about 100 degrees.
- Add the gelatin to the water and let dissolve.
- Now with the blender going on slow, pour the gelatin into the strawberry puree and blend well for about 20 sec.
- Now pour the strawberry mixture on the egg whites and fold in carefully until evenly mixed.
- Pour the mix into 4 cups and put in the refrigerator to set for at least 4 hours.
- When ready to serve whip the heavy cream in a blender or with an electric whip.
- Serve with a large dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry for garnish.

The Gelatin Secret
For further reading, my friend Sylvie's book, The Gelatin Secret (affiliate link), is by far the best book out there on the subject.
Gelatin is the superfood that can give you relief from digestive disorders and thousands of people are finding that regular consumption is helping them heal their bodies and live a healthier life.
