Red, White, and Blueberry Bonanza

Love the taste of fresh berries and whipped cream, but not all the calories? Fold strained vanilla yogurt into a little real whipped cream.

  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 pint strawberries, halved

2. Whip cream with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold yogurt into whipped cream.

3. Spoon 1/4 cup whipped cream mixture into bottom of glasses. Sprinkle berries over whipped cream mixture and repeat layering. Garnish with mint sprigs and serve.
