Happy Canada Day!
I lived in Canada until I was 18 and celebrated a lot of Canada Days! My family is still mostly there so I thought I would make this dessert in their honor (honour) 🙂 There are a lot of things I love about Canada besides my family! Some of them being in no particular order: hockey, ketchup potato chips (my hubby’s favourite), Cheezies, Poutine, no pennies, Bob and Doug McKenzie, Nanaimo bars, butter tarts, Saskatoon berries, Ice Wine, Tiger tail ice-cream (not sure if that is gluten free or not but I used to love it as a kid!), Flax fields in bloom, canola fields in bloom, and many other things that I cannot think of right this second. Don’t get me wrong I love the country that I live in but there are a few things you just can’t get here.
Canada turns 150 years old!
Happy Birthday Canada! I can’t imagine what it was like 150 years ago! I bet people got together with their families for food and conversation, just like we do now. Your family will love this dessert just like mine does. If you make it all for yourself no one will judge you since it has lots of healthy fruit in it. 🙂 The best part about this dessert is that it takes just a few minutes to whip together.
