  • frozen whipped topping (fat-free, thawed in refrigerator)
    1/2 cup
  • lemon zest (grated)
    1/4 tsp
  • fresh lemon juice
    2 tsp
  • almonds (dry roasted, sliced, crushed)
    1 tbsp
  • kiwi(s) (peeled and cut into 4 slices)
  • medium strawberries (quartered)
  • powdered sugar
    1/2 tsp


  1. In a small bowl, gently stir together the whipped topping, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Spoon into two small custard cups or ramekins.

  2. Sprinkle the almonds over the whipped topping. Arrange the kiwifruit and strawberries on top. Using a fine sieve, sift the confectioner’s sugar over all. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving time. If refrigerated, the sugar will dissolve and give the fruit a glazed appearance.
