This Celestial Cream is a hands-down crowd-pleaser! I'd stack this one up against any dessert you can name. It's a light and creamy dessert to grace a dinner party, a Holiday feast or your family meal.

This is so good and just as yummy if you use strawberries instead of the raspberries. East to do and so pretty on the plate.

This dessert was heavenly! So easy to make and it tasted wonderful! I used a combination of fresh and frozen raspberries and blueberries which made a wonderful presentation! I would make this again and again.
