The simplest ever raspberries and cream: tart, juicy raspberries and sweet, creamy sweetened condensed milk. Too delicious not to share.Some recipes are so simple, they’re almost embarrassing to post (memories of the recipe-in-a-description yet oh so delicious peanut butter banana toast with agave and sea salt) yet too delicious not to. What if there’s a French major in Montana who’s never tried it? A stay-at-home mom in Colorado who’d never thought to pair the simple ingredients? WHAT IF!

The simplest ever raspberries and cream: tart, juicy raspberries and sweet, creamy sweetened condensed milk. Too delicious not to share.Enter: raspberries and cream. The concept had always sounded like one of the most delightful out there, but I’d never thought to pair two incredibly simple ingredients to bring it together. I always figured I’d belabor myself with a thin pastry cream, tempering egg yolks and muttering curse words under my breath.

The simplest ever raspberries and cream: tart, juicy raspberries and sweet, creamy sweetened condensed milk. Too delicious not to share.Or loudly. Quite loudly, at no one in particular.

But as I venture further and further into typical Mexican cuisine (and, consequently, a pretty strong affiliation to all things lechera–sweetened condensed milk, that is), it came to me. A simple drizzle of sweetened condensed milk over raspberries and what do you have? Raspberries and cream, people. Raspberries and cream.

The simplest ever raspberries and cream: tart, juicy raspberries and sweet, creamy sweetened condensed milk. Too delicious not to share.This recipe is perfect for a weeknight dessert, especially in the summer when raspberries are still sweet and in season. A simple drizzle, and you’re off, feeling not-too-guilty but totally indulged. The creamy sweetness of the sweetened condensed milk is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures and pairs just perfectly with the tart, juicy raspberries. A total match made in heaven.

The simplest ever raspberries and cream: tart, juicy raspberries and sweet, creamy sweetened condensed milk. Too delicious not to share.Don’t laugh at the recipe! Just… don’t. I know. It’s not actually a recipe, but dammit, what about the graphic designer in Idaho who had the same pastry cream nightmare? Think of the graphic designer in Idaho!

  1. Well, here’s a photographer in Colorado who had never thought of pairing these two divine ingredients, so, thank you, Cheryl! 😉 Those photos make me drool, the drip on the second raspberry from the left in the middle row of the top photo is PERFECT!5 stars

    1. And to the photographer in Colorado who’d never thought of…! 🙂 Any photography compliment from you makes me geek out a little hard; just saying. I’m a huge fan of your work, Nicole!

  2. I love your photographs! And your drizzle if perfection! A little fresh lime juice mixed in with the condensed milk is another great way to serve 🙂
