No Fail 4th of July Sweets

A few months ago, I was looking for an ice cream/whip topping to make ice cream sandwiches. Lucky for me, there was a new arrival at the store – So Delicious CocoWhip. My love affair with cookies was taken to a whole new level with this delicious creamy topping. I also found myself adding it to an afternoon coffee or atop a banana with sunflower seed butter. Everything was really SO Delicious with this topping!

While I haven’t been using it quite as heavily as I did when first discovered it – do you eat/use the heck out of a new product when you first find it – I did find that pairing it with berries for a 4th of July treat was a real win! If you are looking for a couple of no-fail, easy peasy dessert options for you, your family or guests for this weekend, you’re in for a treat! 🙂

Berry Parfait

berries – strawberries + blueberries
So Delicous CocoWhip

Layer berries and cocowhip in your favorite dessert cup. Add topping as you wish…nuts, cacao nibs, coconut, etc. and serve. The topping will melt if left out too long so make sure to place in freezer if you’re not serving them within a short amount of time after prepping them.

Berry Parfait with Berry Sauce + Crumble

berries – strawberries + blueberries
berry sauce – blueberry filling or strawberry sauce
crumble
So Delicious CocoWhip

Prep the blueberry filling or the strawberry sauce (from the strawberry cheesecake swirl bars) as well as the crumble topping and set aside. In your dessert cup, layer the cocowhip, berries, sauce and crumble until the cup is filled, ending with a dollop of cocowhip and sprinkle of the crumble.

Each of these desserts can be assembled in minutes, which is perfect because you don’t want to be fussing over desserts…you want to be enjoying your company, time away from work…your freedom! 🙂

Although if you do have just a few more minutes, you might want to check out the Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars or the Blueberry Crumble Bars. <3 Happy 4th of July weekend!
