Memorial Day: Healthy Berry Desert Pizza

Happy Memorial Day! Isn't it great to honor our Veterans? If you see one today, hug them- thank them- shake their hand! If you don't see any in person, I know you could thank at least one through social media!

Are any of you going to a special service or barbequing today?  We are doing both!

I was searching for healthy red/white/blue color themed desert recipes and I found this one over at Undressed Skeleton and fell in love. If you want, you can go to her website for the recipe or you can keep scrolling here. 



Healthy Berry Desert Pizza

Things you will need:
~box of graham crackers
~2 cups lite cool whip
~6 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt
~1 medium banana
~1 tbsp honey
~diced strawberries
~blueberries

Place the graham crackers in a large bowl and crush them with a cup. Keep them a little crunchy, you don't want them too fine. Them, slice the banana and add it to the crumbles. Mix it with your hands until it is all moist and place on a greased cookie tray.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread crust with hands from the center going outward. Once it is in a flat circle, pinch the edges to make a border. Then, drizzle the honey over it and spread evenly with a spoon. Place in oven for 20 minutes. Once you remove crust, let it cool down or it will break in half! Also, it needs to cool so the topping doesn't melt over it.

Meanwhile, while the crust is cooling mix your topping. Stir the lite cool whip and the vanilla Greek yogurt together and place in fridge for 20 minutes to thicken. Then, spread it across the top of the crust starting at the center and working your way outward. Place strawberries and blueberries as desired. Place in fridge until ready to serve.
