Fruit Disguised as Dessert: Food Musings
If forced, my kids will eat fruit. Naturally it's not the first thing they want when asking for their nightly dessert. Now that it's summer, there is such a wide variety of readily available fruit that it seems criminal not to have it by the bucket!
After dinner I enlisted my daughter's assistance in assembling these pretty dishes. She was so happy to help that she forgot there was fruit under the whipped cream!
It's an assembly job, really. I made whipped cream but there is no reason you can't use the canned cream - or Cool Whip. It all works well! For a more adult version, try soaking the blueberries in Creme de Casis. And don't forget to dust with powdered sugar!
