Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake

Katerina | Diethood
Packed with real fruit and topped with homemade vanilla whipped cream, this Strawberries and Cream Mug Cake is a super quick low-carb dessert full of bright strawberry flavor. It's so easy to make, and the slightly tart flavor of the strawberries pairs perfectly with the light sweetness of the cream.
