Blueberry Pie Sundaes
This dessert features one of summer's stars: fresh, ripe blueberries. We cook the blueberry mixture down until almost jammy, then fold in fresh berries for a bit of juicy pop in every bite. Coarsely crumbled English shortbread cookies act as the pie crust and add a delicious crunch. You can make the sauce ahead, and then microwave in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 90 seconds or until warm, stirring every 30 seconds. Serve immediately for best results. Using low-fat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream keeps this superfast summer treat at just 5.6g of fat and under 300 calories.
