4th of July Fruit “Cake”

on July 4, 2012

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!

I thoroughly enjoy holidays because I love making new themed dishes, especially desserts.  This year for the 4th, I really wanted to find a healthier option to the traditional stars and stripes cake.  Last week, Eat Better America posted a recipe for a Red, White, and Blue Fruit “Cake” that is not only easy to make but tastes great!  You will never even notice that there is no cake in this dessert!!

1 package (8 oz) fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Greek Fat Free honey-vanilla or plain yogurt
1/3 cup sugar
3 (8-inch) round slices seedless watermelon, rind removed (each 1 inch thick)
3 cups blue and red berries (choose from blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries)

Preparation:
1. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, yogurt and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.
2. Just before serving, place 1 watermelon round on serving platter; top with one-third of the cream cheese mixture. Place half of the berries on top of cream cheese. Gently place second watermelon round over berries.Repeat layers of cream cheese mixture, berries (saving a few for the top) and watermelon round. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture on top, and garnish with remaining berries.
