My mum found this recipe somewhere, and I made it last weekend for a family get-together, It was a huge hit. I wanted to share before the 4th of July holiday comes up. Very refreshing, lovely summer dessert.

This was originally a Sara Lee "All Butter Pound Cake" and Cool Whip promotion. I have the magazine "recipe ad" with one of the coupons still attached -- the expiration date was 9/30/95! Have made this for at least one patriotic holiday each year due to popular demand - everyone loves it.
