4th of July Dessert for All!

This Independence Day, surprise your friends and family with a delicious treat! Whether you’re staying at home or heading out to a BBQ, it’s a good idea to make a dish for everyone to share. For the Fourth of July weekend, my husband and I decided to stay in town and relax. After months of wedding planning and constant traveling, it’s nice to finally sit on the couch with a sugar-free vanilla latte and The Lumineers album playing in the background. That being said, of course I had the cooking bug this morning which always leads to a new creation.

I have been trying to eat healthier, which can be extremely difficult when you love to cook and have a never ending sweet tooth. For this Fourth of July Dessert, we will be making a naturally sweetened whipped berry treat!

Ingredients:

6 pack of dessert shells

Sugar-free cool whip

Blueberries

Strawberries

Steps:

  1. Scoop ¾ cup of cool whip into a mixing bowl and stir for a more firm consistency
  2. Line the 6 dessert shells on a baking sheet
  3. If you like honey, add a dollop of honey inside the dessert shell. This will give the dessert a sweeter flavor.
  4. Scoop a spoon full of cool whip into the dessert shell
  5. Wash ½ cup of blueberries and 12 strawberries
  6. Cut each strawberry in half (or thinner slices for decorating)
  7. Assemble the fruit onto the top of the dessert shell and cool whip
  8. Enjoy!

*NOTE: If you make these for an event later in the day, refrigerate the dessert for at least 2 hours before taking out and sitting on the dessert table!
