Edit: sorry I missed the part about no berries :( Maybe this is different enough from cupcakes that it's OK? Strawberries are such a quintessential summer fruit anyway :)

I'm struggling to come up with some healthy dessert ideas to bring to my family labor day picnic. My sister is making strawberry cupcakes and so I want to stay away from the berry or cakey desserts. I'm really struggling because I'd like something relatively guilt free when it's going to be a day filled with guilty foods.
