3/4 cup whipping cream
1 cup crushed blueberries
2T powdered sugar
2T water
2T sugar
1 cup rough chopped strawberries

Step 2: In an 8-inch sautée pan, combine water and sugar with strawberries and cook on medium to high heat for about 5-6 minutes until water and sugar creates a syrup and strawberries begin to slightly breakdown.

Assembly:

Step 1: To make each sundae, spoon the warm sautéed strawberries into the bottom of a small bowl.

Step 2: Top with 2 scoops (1/4 cup each scoop) of Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream.

Step 3: Add a small dollop of blueberry whip cream and sprinkle with the pretzels. Nutrition tip: Looking to save some calories? Skip the whipped cream and just add the fresh blueberries on top!
