This desert is very light and tasty on a hot day. I served it in an individual, glass, footed dish with a half a strawberry set on top at a jaunty angle. I followed the directions as written.

This was made as given, & we had a great tasting, refreshing dessert! Definitely worth making again, & another time I might just add a bit of sliced strawberries on top! Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe! [made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]
