Happy July 4th y’all!

Now, get ready for the best red, white & blue dessert ever.  It’s a GIANT Red Velvet Microwave Cake topped with a delicious Cream Cheese Frosting and a sweet Blueberry Drizzle.

Healthy Red, White & Blue Dessert! Healthy Single-Serving Red Velvet Microwave Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Blueberry Drizzle - Desserts with Benefits

The Red Velvet Cupcake is sweet, soft, and moist, it’s hard to believe it’s gluten-free, sugar-free, high-fiber and high-protein.

The Cream Cheese Frosting is rich, creamy and slightly tangy.  And it’s sugar-free and low-fat!

The Blueberry Drizzle just tops off the entire dish.  While it’s refined-sugar-free, it’s definitely not flavor-free.  I like how it’s not overpoweringly blueberryish so you can focus on that hint-of-cocoa-cake and oh-so-good-how-can-this-be-guilt-free-frosting  ;-)

Overall, this recipe can be adapted pretty easily.  Maybe not the cake so much, because that took a few trial and errors to get just right, but you could change up the frosting and toppings all you want!

In the Cream Cheese Frosting, you can:

For the Blueberry Drizzle, you can:

  • Increase amount to 1 tbs
  • Use a different flavor, such as grape or blackberry…  anything blue(ish)!
  • Or replace the jam with a handful of fresh, whole blueberries on top of the frosting
