Whether it's for your 4th of July party, your summer family reunion or just an afternoon hanging out with the kids - cool treats make for a great refresher from the heat! HyVee Registered Dietitian Susan Waltrip shares three great recipes: a 4th of July Trifle, Fruity Popsicles and a Waldorf Salad!
Fourth of July Trifle
1 pint blue berries
1 pound strawberries, sliced
1 angel food cake
1 package sugar free/fat free vanilla pudding
1 large container Hy-Vee lite cool whip
Cut angel food cake into 1 inch chunks. Whisk the package of dry pudding mix with cool whip. In a trifle bowl layer angel food cake, cool whip mixture and berries. Repeat 2-3 times and top with a dollop of cool whip mixture.
2 large apples, cored, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 cup pitted sweet cherries
1 cup black seedless grapes, sliced in half
½ cup Hy-Vee slivered almonds
1 container Hy-Vee Lite vanilla yogurt
In a large salad bowl, combine all ingredients. Serve chilled.
Place cut strawberries and blueberries in popsicle mold and fill with pear nectar. Place cover on mold and freeze for at least 6 hours.
