Easy Breezy 4th of July Dessert

Happy 4th of July!

Hosting the party this year but don’t know an easy dessert to make for your guests? This is super simple and takes only a few minutes; it looks elegant and your guests will be wowed.

Don’t want to use real martini glasses? No worries, you can cheaply purchase the plastic martini glasses at craft stores like Party City.

I used 6 medium strawberries and 10 blueberries per martini glass.

Whipped cream:

This will make about 2 full martini glasses, so alter depending on how many guests.

1 cup heavy cream

3 tbsp powdered sugar

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract or whatever extract you want

Place cream and sugar in a mixing bowl on high for 1-2 minutes, don’t over mix. Add the vanilla and mix for another 1-2 minutes until you have peaks.

Take a plastic bag and empty the whipped cream into one corner of the bag. Take a scissor and cut a small slit in one corner to allow the whipped cream to flow out when you apply pressure to the bag.

Creating the martini: Bottom of the glass – I put 3 blueberries at the very bottom and then began layering the whipped cream in a circle and alternating with the sliced strawberries. Do this until the glass is almost full. For the very top layer, lay the strawberries in a flower like arrangement and create a peak with the whipped cream in the very center. Arrange the blueberries around the peak.

Stay safe and Happy 4th!
