Fourth of July Dessert recipe

Happy 4th of July!  I was in the mood for some strawberry cake today and decided to try my hand at one that was red, white, and blue for Independence Day.  I blame Pinterest!  My fiance actually fixed this delicious dessert cup for me after we went to the store to pick up all of the ingredients (Thanks babe). 

Since it’s a holiday weekend, I did consider this my one cheat treat so I did not have the vegan, super-clean version (hey, it’s my one treat in a few weeks so I’m indulging just a little) but, I am including some healthier ingredient options in the recipe below.  Both will definitely hit the sweet spot! I thoroughly enjoyed mine and the small cup portion helped me to not feel as guilty too.

Recipe

1 cut up strawberry

4 to 5 blueberries

1 slice of Sara Lee pound cake (or any cake of your choice; healthier option: granola)

Reddi-Whip whipped cream (Healthier option: coconut whipped cream)

1 scoop of your favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt (Healthier option: use vanilla greek yogurt)

-Layer the ingredients any way you like.  At the top, add 1 squirt of whipped cream and decorate with blueberries.

This dessert was so good!
