We've been trying out a lot of fun recipes lately--that is, at least when we've been home. It's been a busier than usual summer for sure.
So, between all the travel, I've been trying to get into the kitchen as much as possible and make some delicious food and of course click, click, click with the camera to capture some drool-worthy images.
Which is what I think we've accomplished with the photos for this recipe.
If you like chocolate and strawberries--and especially the two combined--you will absolutely fall in love with this delightful dessert. It is SO easy to make. So easy.
As in--why in the world I did not make it sooner I have absolutely NO idea. Because I wish I had. I might be 20 pounds heavier as a result, but if it was all because of this Whipped Strawberry Dessert, I might even be okay with that.
Of course--as I write that I'm thinking that it might be a good time to start doing planks or crunches, because I'd really like to enjoy another slice of strawberry chocolate yumminess!
The thing about desserts like our Whipped Strawberry Dessert--and desserts like our Fruit 'Salad', Banana Cream Dessert and just about every smoothie we make--is that even though they are sweet, they still have some good-for-you ingredients.
And really, if we're enjoying tasty treats in little bits and bites...well, it can't be all that bad, can it?
