Date Whip

I still laugh thinking about the first time I made this. It was the 4th of July, and I wanted to have a dessert alternative to the cake my brother was bringing. I also thought this might be a good “icing” for the cake. It didn’t win over my family, and they completely laughed when I tried serving it. I’ll admit, it didn’t go well with the butter cake... but it turns out that we were serving it wrong! This whip served with bananas or apples is out of this world.

How We Met

Oh man, I could go on for days about how amazing Stephanie is! I met Stephanie when she was working at a local restaurant that my husband and I eat lunch at often. She was always so friendly and took the time to remember our names and chat with us when we would come in. Eventually we hired her for our businesses, and she joined the BurgerFit team. She is working on getting her holistic health coaching certification (March 2020) so obviously loves cooking healthy and is also a singer and guitarist. She really can do it all! We love sharing healthy recipes with each other and trying each other’s lunches. It was a natural fit for us to host this show together.
