Welcome to my first article!
I had seen a lot of articles talking about how to enjoy a cute and cozzy christmas, but for half of the world, christmas is in summer, our december doesn’t mean hot cocoa, coffes, snow or cozzy clothes by a fire, it actually means smoothies, ice cream, pool and swimsuites. I wasn’t able to feel the "Christmas Spirit" or to do any DIY or hot chocolate recipe that i rea don the articles. So, if yo live in the southern hemisphere keep on reading.

Easy and tasty! It’s just chantilly cream with strawberrys, this will never fail as a dessert, everyone will love it and its perfect for hot weather!

Chantilly Cream Recipe:
Ingredients:
cup heavy whipping cream, chilled

2 tablespoons powdered sugar (icing sugar)

1⁄2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
Method:
Combine all ingredients.
Using a hand whisk (balloon whisk) or electric whisk, beat the cream in a stainless steel or glass or china bowl (not plastic- doesn't seem to whip as well).
It is whipped properly when it is still soft and billowy but holds its shape when the whisk is withdrawn.
Once the cream is whipped, cover and store in the fridge.
If it separates slightly, just rewhip to restore its thickness.
