Happy Independence Day – Let’s Eat!

It’s no doubt that many of us may tend over-indulge in unhealthy foods at Independence Day cookouts and parties this weekend.  But while some may be eating caramel apple pies and chocolate cookies, you can choose to serve yourself a lighter dessert that’s festive and easy to make to share with the party. Why not make something with JELL-O?!

JELL-O comes in 12 sugar-free flavors but of course the red and blue varieties are particularly good options for USA-themed treats. You can even use sugar-free whipped cream and add blueberries and strawberries for a boost of antioxidants and vitamin C!

Here are a few creative dessert ideas to impress your friends and keep you looking good at the pool parties! Click on the titles to go to the recipes.
