Plump, juicy raspberries and whipped cream atop a banana chocolate chip dessert shell. This quick and easy spring/summer dessert makes good use of seasonal berries and takes less than 30 minutes to make.
I had a difficult time choosing what to post this week. Usually, whatever I pick has to feel like the right item at that particular time, and nothing I came up felt right. It was not until yesterday morning when the idea came to me in the produce aisle. You see, blackberries were $2 for a 12-ounce carton. That is incredibly cheap for where I am. They were dark, big, and juicy. So I picked up a couple of cartons. It occurred to me that the berries would be perfect to use on dessert shells. And what would be better than to top them on my Banana-Chocolate Dessert Shells? Nothing right? I didn't think so!
Mother's Day is sneaking up fast. This easy, simple, and quick dessert would be an ideal special treat for Mom or mother figures in your life. Who wouldn't appreciate a beautiful, home-made dessert with fresh ingredients made especially for them? You don't even have to let them know that it took you under 30 minutes to make. If you are stuck doing the cooking on Mother's Day, this quick recipe is a life saver that can be made a day ahead and assembled the day of.
And please don't limit yourself to whipping this up just on Mother's Day. I'm going to take advantage of all the fresh fruits of the upcoming months. Similar versions of this recipe will make several appearances in my sweet treats rotation from now and throughout the summer.
