This was emailed to me from Taste of Home. It sounded very cool and comforting for hot weather when berries are in season. Enjoy!

I had picked up blueberries, strawberries and raspberries at the Farmers Market, so I just had to make this recipe. We did add the yogurt, I cut back on the sugar as we don't like things too sweet. Made for ZWT9.
