If you’re planning on sharing with a sibling or your friend, you can just adjust the quantity. Or you can just politely say that it’s not enough for two.

For the first step, mix the cream, berries, vanilla extract, and sugar in a Ziploc bag.

Make sure that you’re using a sandwich-size bag. By using a Ziploc bag, you won’t have to worry about washing dirty bowls after you’re done making your desert. It’s quite convenient, right?
