The 4th is almost here!
And everyone needs ideas for what to cook and what to bake for dessert. I’ve got one of those covered! Here are 10 desserts that will rock your 4th of July weekend, and they’re all heathy! Well, healthier, right? No refined sugar and no crazy food dyes. Just fruit parfaits and tarts, cupcakes and dairy-free ice cream! Of course ice cream, because it’s HOT out there and ice cream is always my first choice.
