I like to promote healthy eating.
I like to ensure that kids in particular have healthy food choices, modelled by adults.
But I have made it no secret that I have my vices (pop) and love dessert. I tell myself that when a dessert is homemade, at least it’s homemade so it’s not as bad (work with me here!). Also, I do believe that there are treats in life that are worth having.
So, when I made the following dessert for my extended family (a variation from a Kraft recipe) I did it with pleasure and little guilt. Make it. Trust me, you’ll enjoy it. But please, don’t try to figure out the calories.
1 can condensed milk
1 tub cool whip (put in fridge so it’s not frozen)
1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries (or fresh strawberries or berry of choice)
- Combine the above ingredients, gently folding into one another until they are blended.
- Line a loaf pan with tin foil (or use foil loaf pans). Fill pan with mixture.
- Freeze for at least 12 hours, closer to 24 is ideal.
- Flip pan over and remove the frozen ‘brick’. It won’t be super hard, but will be firm.
- Cut and serve.
Note: I also did a variation one week. Instead of the raspberries I added crushed oreo cookies, could have also used chocolate chip cookies. It was delicious, but extremely sweet (not a big deal for me and my sweet tooth) but in all hoensty the berries were a nicer taste for everyone.
