This is my favorite dessert, I love it, love it, love it! So simple, so good! We were first served this at a restaurant and I just had to make my own. I suppose you could use pre-made whipped topping, but I like to make my own.

So easy to make & the whipped cream was terrific. I may use it on other things too. The grapes I purchased were a tad on the tart side. Next time I will try to find a sweeter grape. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

WOW! This was super simple and sooo good! The whipped cream was absolutely delicious. At first I wasn't going to add the slivered almonds because I didn't think I would like the crunch texture in the mix, but I'm glad I did- they really add something to it. Excellent! thanks for sharing.

A simple to make and really delicious recipe that is easy enough to whip up for an evening meal and would be great to serve to guests as a flavoursome finale to any meal. It really is testimony to the less is more principle. I halved the sugar (personal taste preference) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, including the great tip in step three. I used green seedless grapes. We enjoyed this on a hot evening when it was very refreshing. Everyone loved it so I’ll be making it again throughout the summer. Thanks for sharing this gem of a recipe, Susan!
