We’re saluting this delicious recipe from because the yummy flavor flat out (red, white and) blew us away!

  • 1 pint blueberries

  1. Wash berries and remove stems.
  2. Cut strawberries into small pieces (similar in size to the mini marshmallows); set aside.
  3. In a very large bowl, beat cream cheese, vanilla, salt and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Add half of cool whip and stir until smooth. Fold in remaining cool whip.
