If you’re looking for a patriotic and uber healthy dessert, look no further!
For Memorial Day, we headed to my dad’s house for a backyard BBQ. Before I had both feet in the door, I’d been recruited to help with the fruit flag. It’s not terribly time intensive, and with 2 of us working on it, I was surprised at how quickly it came together. And I learned quite a few tricks along the way.
- Use a banana slicer. HUGE time saver. (Also, you’re welcome…the reviews on Amazon are a HOOT!)
- Use a straw to take the stems out of the strawberries, then line up and slice in bulk.
- Use a disposable lasagna size foil pan. A 9×13 baking dish isn’t big enough!
Stars – we left the stars off because of the boys’ dairy allergy. You could use white chocolate chips, or real whipped cream for some added sweetness. After a huge dinner, this was the perfect light dessert that satisfied the sweet tooth, but didn’t push me over the “I’m too stuffed to move” edge. (I know you know what I’m talking about.)
