Sounds delicious. I've never seen neufchatel cheese where I live (don't even know what it is!). What can I use as a substitute?

It's typically labeled "Light Cream Cheese" & found in the dairy section right next to the regular cream cheese.  "

"I halved this recipe thinking I didn't need much for the potluck I was taking it to, but afterwards it was comletely gone. I whipped sweetened heavy cream instead of using cool whip and it was delicious!"

"I've made this recipe numerous times, and every time I make it everyone just loves it and can't get enough! It's also very refreshing. When I make it I use reduced fat in the cream cheese and the cool whip.

Thank-you for sharing this one!

"I doubled the cool whip and the cream cheese and used low fat or light for these. After cooking the frozen blueberries they didn't smell great but then on the dessert they were fine."
