How can something so good be so simple? This is nice, light and refreshing. I made this as written and garnished with sliced fresh strawberries. Toddler DS really enjoyed the 'pink ice cream.' I used fat-free sour cream and left it in a single bowl, serving from that (removed from the freezer at the start of a meal, just to soften enough to serve). The partial freeze took 2-3 hours in my freezer and yet the edges were frozen while the middle was still a bit runny. It was fine in the mixer nonetheless. We will be enjoying this many times, particularly in the summer. I might even try this with some other fruit. Thanks!

Very good! We liked it at the soft serve consistency best. I couldn't believe how easy this was and very tasty with the sour cream. Thank you for a great recipe.

So refreshing on a hot summer day! It was like a cross between a gourmet ice cream and sorbet. We loved it. I realized after I had added the strawberries that it was a 16 ox. bag instead of a 10 oz. one. It didn't seem to affect the outcome at all. I also used reduced fat sour cream with excellent results.

Excellent! I too felt it was more like ice cream then mousse only because of the temperature. However it is decadent enough to serve at your most special occasion. Made for the July 2009 Everybody is Making the Same Thing Challenge in the Photo Forum.

Rich, creamy and tasty! Bet you could use other fruits in this mousse. I felt like I was eating ice cream. Prepared as a participant in the July 2009 Everybody Making the Same Thing Challenge in the Photo Forum.

REALLY loved this. The only thing I did differant was cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup as we like the tart taste and then topped with fresh whipped cream and a strawberry and tossed in a couple of left over blueberries. Yum; bet this would be good with ANY frozen or fresh fruit - think I might try it with peaches next time. Made for Photo Forum event: Everyone-is-Making-the same-thing-challenge #2

I threw everything in the blender then froze it but had to borrow Yamakarasu's chisel! I left mine in the freezer till it was brick hard also. Everyone enjoyed though! Gonna try this with fresh blueberries next time. made for We're All Making the Same Thing.

Very simple and tasty! I used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream and only used 1/4 cup of berry sugar, it turned out very nicely. I let the strawberries thaw a bit then coarse chopped them and then into the food processor added the yogurt and sugar, pulsed twice then into the freezer. I plan on making this again with other seasonal fruit. Made for the "Everyone is making the same thing" challenge in the photo forum.

Look, I just made my own ice cream!! Alright, I still need to actually finish the recipe; I was out for a while so the mixture froze completely the first time. So I still need to pull it out, let it thaw and blend it up better. I was impatient to do that though and chizelled my way into having a serving of it, haha. It was mighty tasty! I added just a touch less sugar, and it came out really well. Light, sweet and refreshing. Thanks for a great recipe!
