Deliciously cute Skinny Mini Ice Cream Pies with strawberries and blueberries www.fooddonelight.com #icecream #icecreampie #lowfaticecream #weightwatchersdessert #july4recipeWhen it comes to July 4th, I always love to make red, white and blue desserts.  I know it is kind of predictable but I love coming up with different desserts and ways to do it.  These Mini Ice Cream Pies were inspired by my Mom.  She requested an Ice Cream Pie for Mother’s Day.  Sure it is delicious with 2 1/2 cups of walnuts in the crust.  It gave me an idea to lighten it up.

I made some with strawberries and some with blueberries to continue my tradition of red, white and blue desserts.  They are quite cute and the perfect size to snack on.  My daughter decided to help me prep these for the picture.  She helped with the chocolate sauce.  That caused quite a few giggles especially as I accidentally squirted a large amount on one.  She was very proud of her staging of the pies with whip cream and cherries.

I love creating memories like that with her.  They probably mean more to me than her right now.  She doesn’t know how much I love that she still wants to hold my hand whenever we walk somewhere.  I know I’ll be the “uncool” Mom soon enough.  Then I’ll have these Mini Ice Cream Pies and pictures to remember when my little girl wanted to be just like her Mom.
