- Strawberry and Blueberry Ice Cream with Cream Soda
- Vanilla Ice Cream with Strawberry Soda

This delicious and somewhat nutritious no bake patriotic dessert can be put together in just a few minutes.
First you need to gather your supplies:
- Marshmallows (standard for skewers or mini for dessert cups…see below*)
- Pre-made brownies from the bakery section of the grocery store
Wash and prep your fruit then simply assemble the kabobs by alternating each of the ingredients in whatever pattern you choose.
*Personally, I prefer and even faster serving option for this dessert. It is also kid-friendly, since skewers make me nervous when little ones are involved. Simply substitute mini marshmallows in the ingredient list and toss all the ingredients into small plastic cups. Bam dessert done!

I recommend making this dessert a few hours ahead of time to allow the cake to start to soak up a bit of the juice from the berries and the cream. Absolutely yummy and fresh! Perfect for a warm holiday weekend.
