ListDensityPlot with interpolation: strictly non-negative data

Hello,

I have some 2D scalar data on a grid that I would like to plot with
higher-than-first order interpolation.  ListDensityPlot can do this
with the setting InterpolationOrder -> 3.

The problem in this specific case is that the data is strictly non-
negative, but the interpolation creates negative regions.  Note that
clipping at 0 is not a good solution because it creates a non-smooth
surface and, even worse, the interpolated function might have positive
"ripples" in it. (I.e. it can decay to 0 by first becoming negative,
then positive again, then 0.)

Is there a simple way to plot strictly non-negative data with higher
order interpolation (perhaps an existing package that implements a
special interpolation)?
