Fourth of July Wave Your Flag Cheesecake

Summer is officially here! Say hello to longer days, warmer weather, backyard parties, and delicious summer recipes. This is by far my most favorite time of year and for good reason. I love the heat, and being the foodie that I am, I love finding new recipes to share with my family and friends to enjoy at our summer get-togethers.

I don’t have a lot of time to spend meal planning and creating recipes, which is why I am so happy to have discovered Grab.Go.Wow from Walmart. It’s an online and in-store destination for product and recipe ideas that will save you time and money. If you’re short on time and want great taste with little effort, this will make meal planning over the summer a breeze!

Grab.Go.Wow at Walmart

This past weekend we got together with family and friends for dinner, so it was the perfect time to test the recipe out before the Fourth of July. I stopped by my local Walmart to purchase all the recipe ingredients and was impressed with how easy it was to find everything I needed. I was able to whip up the recipe with little effort and was really happy with how nice it turned out!

Everyone loved the cake and raved about how delicious it was. Even I enjoyed it and I’m not usually a huge sweets person. The combo of fresh fruit, pound cake, JELL-O, and creamy topping makes for the perfect summer dessert. It’s one recipe you will want to make again and again, no matter what time of year it is!
