Fresh Berry and Cream Cheese Dessert Recipe (Gluten-Free Too)
This is an easy, gluten-free, delicious recipe for a dessert or treat that is sure to please and is a perfect summer meal addition.
Recipe type: Appetizer or Dessert
  • 3 cubed Golden Delicious or Red Delicious apples
  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1 6oz package of blueberries or blackberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups whipped cream (this just puts a light glaze on the fruit)
  • ½ an 8oz. container of whipped mixed berry cream cheese
  • ½ an 8oz. container of regular whipped cream cheese
  • Mint leaves for a garnish and to "cleanse the pallet"
  1. Wash and cut your apples into cubes and strawberries into quarters and wash the other berries.
  2. Then mix the berries and apples in a bowl with the sugar and whipped cream. This will give them a nice coating and take the tart bite out a bit!
  3. Mix the berry cream cheese with the regular cream cheese in a separate bowl.
  4. Then place in your serving dishes. My mom likes to serve them in champagne glasses. Sometimes she even uses the disposable ones from the Dollar Store.
  5. Then top with a dollop of the cream cheese mixture and a mint leaf!
  6. Serve immediately!
