This was an easy dessert to prepare & would be excellent for summer. I ended up using premade phyllo cups so literally spent minutes on this. Texturally this is light & fluffy. I had fresh blueberries & wished I had mashed a few to impart color & smaller flecks throughout. Thank you for a nice dessert!
