Mixed Berries and Mascarpone Cream Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This light, refreshing, and absolutely delicious mixed berries and mascarpone cream is one of my favorite dessert recipes just like panna cotta and berries, because it never disappoints me! This recipe is delicious, easy and consists of only few steps. It’s definitely a keeper!

This recipe was inspired by a mascarpone dessert we had at a café in Trevignano Romano a couple of years ago. Trevignano Romano is a small town located about 50 km north of Rome, Italy.

I’ve made mixed berries and mascarpone dessert last week, because our friends Manfred and Tanja came over for dinner. My menu was a combination of Namibian and Italian food. Because Manfred and Tanja will be going to Namibia in few weeks. And my family and I will be going to Italy in few days. My family and guests loved it. It was a quick and easy dessert that got rave reviews.

This recipe is similar to fresh strawberry cake cheese frosting. I normally play around with this recipe. Sometimes I use cream cheese or sour cream instead of heavy cream. I also use fresh or frozen berries, depending on the season.
