Fresas, Crema and Honey Nut Cheerios Recipe

 

 

This is a sponsored post but all opinions expressed are my own.

I’ve been on a sugar free, low carb diet for a couple of weeks now but have been itching for something sweet. I knew that if I was going to cheat, it had to be with something good. Because Dia Del Los Niños is coming up and I’ve been reminiscing about my childhood, I decided to make fresas con crema topped off with my all time favorite cereal, Honey Nut Cheerios. We didn’t go to a lot of fancy restaurants when we were little but we sure did enjoy when my mom would take us to buy fresh strawberries and crème at the local indoor swapmeet.

The best part about this dessert is that it takes minutes to make and I found all of the ingredients in one trip to my local  Wal-Mart.  Plus, it was  a great bonding activity for the whole family. My little helper had a blast putting her cup together!

Sweetfang Sundae Recipe

I have the sweetest tooth. All I can ever think about is dessert and even though today is officially the first day of Fall, it is hot as ever in Los Angeles. Because I’m super excited about HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 2 coming to theatres in just a couple of days, I decided to make Drac inspired ice cream dessert. I call it “Sweetfang Sundae” and it was delicious!

Sweetfang Sundae

You’ll need four ingredients:

Vanilla Ice Cream
Frozen Strawberries
Whipped Cream

Strawberries Spread ( I used Smucker’s squeezeable)

My husband opted for cookies and cream and insisted that I call his dessert “spookies and cream,” whichever flavor you choose, will be delicious!

Enjoy!

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 2 will be out in theatres on September 25th Watch official trailer here!
