I love the flavors of summer. Unfortunately, California has been suffering from torrential downpours lately so things like sunshine have been sparse. The clouds haven't put a damper on my love for summer fruits and desserts that can be made from them. I love the fact that fruits can be found year-round in the freezer. Frozen fruits (and veggies) are usually just as healthy as fresh fruits since they're frozen at the peak of their freshness. We were strolling through Fresh and Easy one afternoon and saw bags of berry medleys and strawberries. We grabbed one of each, a tub of Cool Whip, and an angelfood cake. Voila! This was such an easy dessert that will be so much more delicious in the summer with fresh fruits. I'll definitely do this again come June!
Berry Delicious Dessert
1 angelfood cake
1 tub of Low Fat Cool Whip
1 bag frozen berry medly
1/4 cup sugar or Splenda
Allow fruit to fully defrost in a glass bowl. Pour sugar on top and let sit for at least a half hour, mixing occasionally. After 30 minutes there should be a good amount of berry liquid in the bowl. Slice the cake into whatever size slice you prefer, top with a couple of spoonfuls of berries, and a dollop of Cool Whip on top. Enjoy!
Sugar draws out the natural juices in the berries!
Yum, yum, yum!
