Questions & Replies

  1. Is there a way to make this just a little thicker and hold together as in a mold?
  2. I’m making a banana cream cheesecake, and part of the topping is banana Bavarian cream. Think I could use bananas instead of strawberries for this recipe?
  3. Did anyone else's turn out runny? Since I want to put it inside a crepe, I kind of need it to be set...fairly well.


  1. My Mom's favorite to make.Will make it this year in her honor.
  2. I've been making this for years. One of my favorite recipes! I always double the recipe. If I use fresh strawberries I cut back on the boiling water then add ice to the dissolved gelatin. Then I just put everything in the blender. Can't get any easier!
  3. Super quick, light, fluffy and it tastes like strawberries. Whats not to love? :D
  4. What a lovely dessert, light, flavorful and refreshing. Just a perfect ending to our heavy meal. It was quick and easy to make with great results. Pretty to look at also. I love that it uses ingredients that I always have on hand. Next time I will add some sugar to the mix. I used berries that I picked and froze this summer. Thanks for sharing another tasty treat Teresa.
  5. Great warm weather dessert, although I think we snacked on it to a point where there was little left for dessert, but then, I've always been a firm believer that desserts are at their greatest when snacked on or served BEFORE dinner! Anyway, this was wonderful, for sure, especially if you're like we are & love strawberries! Refreshing & simple! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag]


  1. I used fresh strawberries. I blend all ingredients in the blender.
