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)

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.
