Not So Fat Fridays - I Forgot Dessert!!!!

See below for the entree but I also promised dessert, didn't I. So, today I am kicking it off with the easiest, tastiest yet not hip damaging dessert. I served this for my parents when they came over for dinner last weekend.



I don't even have a name for this yet:

Just buy the storebought angel foodcake shells. Use fresh fruit or the frozen mixed berries I used. I defrosted the berries the day of & then tossed them with 1 tsp of sugar & a couple of tblsps of Cointreau, an orange liquer. But this is not necessary. Just nice! Top with fat free cool whip and you're done!

This simple dessert looks so pretty when you plate it like you did. As Jacques Pepin would say on his show Fast Food My Way, "Now, you can charge $8.99 for that dessert." Looks great!!

Presents nicely : )

Joan said...

That looks just beautiful. Restaurant quality for sure. And easy on my muffin top!!

Michelle said...

So simple, yet so beautiful. I love recipes like that. I'd also love the Chicken with asparagus, but my family won't eat asparagus anymore. Everyone complains it makes their pee stink. :-P

This is the only way my hub will eat strawberry short cake.. the mixed fruit sounds good too.. I'll have to give that a try.

So easy and so good!!

Ooh, it was worth the wait! I have some frozen strawberries leftover from our strawberry picking trip that would be good for this. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. :)

Thanks for the reply on the onion. Can you tell I don't cook much?

jewelstreet said...

One more comment. I LOVE Not So Fat Fridays, and I can't wait until next week! When I start my Bloggers Fitness Club, you will have to stop by with some recipes or at least will you give me permission to post some links.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Easy desert. It is the New Year and I'm trying to take down my meatiness. I'll try this on Sunday cheat day and let you know how it turns out.

Oh. After weeks of fatty holiday fare, I'm so glad to welcome in the good stuff. Yay for berries and little calories!

Pam said...

This is such a fun and simple dessert. I love your platter.

Jen said...

Holy crap that is beautiful. I so wish that when I put my fork to the screen, it came back with a piece instead of just scratching the screen.

Lorina said...

My mouth is watering! Yum!

Life, Love And Lola said...

YUM! Lets make this when you come to visit.

A splash of Cointreau makes most everything better. Thanks for yet another tasty treat. That meal that you served when your parents came over must have been great. You served the artichokes as an appetizer and this as a dessert, right? What was your entree? The chicken that you wrote about below?
