Date Syrup Whipped Cream

Author Notes: This light-as-a-feather, naturally sweetened (thanks to the date syrup) whipped cream comes together in just 10 minutes with little-to-no effort on your part. We like to use it as part of a riff on the berry-topped pavlova featured in 8 Tricks for Swoopy, Fluffy, Long-Lasting Whipped Cream—simply swap out the strawberries for crumbled halva and fresh figs. A few dollops could happily sit atop a stack of pancakes or bowl of ice cream.Sarah Jampel
