“I wanted to make my father a nice dessert for Father's Day this year. My father loves home made cakes and fresh fruit, my girlfriend LOVES strawberries, and my mom, (whose lost over 75 pounds!) can't have high calorie/fat desserts. This was my attempt to make something to that everyone could enjoy! I adapted this from Kraft Food and Family magazine to make it a bit more figure friendly.”
