Strawberry Clouds

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!

In addition, my affiliate partner, Tropical Traditions, is a great source for pastured soy-free eggs. It can be hard to find soy-free eggs, so if you can't find them locally in your area, I'd recommend checking out Tropical Traditions.

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.

Vital Proteins offers two types of gelatin. It is important to know that these ARE NOT interchangeable when it comes to recipes! The green top (Collagen Protein) is what you need for this recipe and for recipes where you are making gummies, “jello”, etc. The blue top (Collagen Peptides) is cold water soluble and does not thicken or gel like gelatin does. Both are very nutritious, but can't be used interchangeably. You can order their own products via their own site here or on Amazon hereWatch this video:
