Summer is almost here, and that means BERRIES!! Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries – I love them all. My old standbys for berry desserts are strawberry shortcake and blackberry cobbler.
Since I was diagnosed with venous insufficiency, I have been on a low sodium diet. Unfortunately, my traditional berry favorites are high in both sodium and calories. I started trying to think of a delicious berry recipe that would be low-sodium and a reasonable calorie range.
I came up with these scrumptious and easy Berry Phyllo Tarts (scroll down for recipe):
And what goes better with a yummy berry dessert than Reddi-wip®? Reddi-wip® makes it easier for berry lovers across the country to bring the joy of springtime berries to their table with a variety of low-calorie, berry creations topped with real cream.

Find stores near you that carry Reddi-wip.
Easy Berry Phyllo Tarts
4 sheets phyllo dough
4 Tsp. sugar
1 1/2 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup sugar
plenty of Reddi-wip
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place a sheet of phyllo on a cutting board or other flat surface; spray with cooking spray; dust gently with some of the sugar. Top with another sheet of phyllo. Repeat 3 times, finishing with spray and sugar.
Using a sharp knife and a biscuit cutter or large drinking glass, cut phyllo into 3-inch circles. Place each stack of circles into a muffin cup, pressing in gently.
Bake for 7-10 minutes until golden. Remove from oven. Let cool slightly then remove from muffin tin.
In a small saucepan, combine the berries and 1/2 cup of sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until berries have softened and sauce is slightly thickened.
Spoon berry mixture into phyllo cups and top with plenty of Reddi-wip.
