I made a healthy, low-cal and super-tasty red, white and blue desert for a 4th of July potluck back in the 1980's. My daughter (now grown) still raves about how it's her all-time favorite desert! I made it without a recipe, but if you can make a pie filling then you can make this quick and healthy desert. Here's the basics of how to:
You need to thicken the berries with either Knox gelatin or cornstarch (like you are making a pie filling) and add a tiny bit of sweetener. I cooked each of the berries in a separate container.
I stacked the Red, White & Blue ingredients one on top of each other in a glass bowl (so it looked cool from the side) with the blueberries on the bottom, the vanilla yogurt in the middle and the raspberries or strawberries on the top. Lastly I put this into the fridge to set up (like you would Jell-O).
* To keep the calories low, use vanilla yogurt, but if you absolutely hate yogurt you can substitute whipped cream. and if you have a milk allergy (or you love the taste of hydrogenated oil), you can use Cool Whip in place of the yogurt.
Mix. Put into a 9x9 inch pan.
Whip together and spread on crackers.
Spread on top of second layer. Chill overnight.

Recipe for Blueberry-Cinnamon Treats.Combine sugar, cinnamon and water in saucepan; bring to a boil; pour into 8 inch round pan and set aside to cool. In a mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
To make the sauce, place the blueberries, orange juice, and sugar substitute in a mini food processor and process until smooth. Set aside for about 15 minutes, until the mixture has thawed. Or transfer to a covered container and chill until ready to use.

Blueberries - a good source of antioxidants - also may help break down cholesterol and fat, as studies on rat cells at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's laboratories in Oxford, Mississippi, found. Pterostilbene, a compound in the berries, may prove to be a potent weapon in the battle against heart disease.
