Reviews for Frosty Lemon-Strawberry Dessert
"To keep it on the more heathy side we added frozen yogurt instead of ice cream and reduced the lemonade."
"I used frozen yogurt instead of the icecream. It was good, but I have better icecream desserts and summer treats recipes. I probably would not make it again."
"I made this for a large group of people at a party! They all LOVED IT !!!~ Susan"
"I THINK I'LL MAKE IT NEXT TIME REPLACING ICE CREAM WITH LOW-SUGAR WHIPPED TOPPING AND 1/2 CAN OF LEMONADE TO MAKE IT MORE DIABETIC FRIENDLY"
"Little disappointed, not my idea of light!"
"This was great, had rave reviews. As always I never follow the recipe exactly but adjust it to match our taste. This will be a future favorite for sure!!!"
"My 9-year-old granddaughter and I made this for company this past weekend. It came out very good -- the weather was uncomfortably hot but this treat was just the refreshing dessert we needed. I used thawed frozen strawberries (whole unsweetened ones I had frozen myself last year) instead of fresh ones and it worked perfectly. I didn't have any fresh strawberries to use as a garnish the first time I served this, so used some real whipped cream instead. The second time I served it (to different guests) I used the whipped cream and topped with 3 or 4 fresh strawberries. Everyone enjoyed this dessert. My husband thought it was a little bit nicer if it thawed for 15 minutes before serving, rather than the 10 minutes suggested in the recipe."
"Yummy!! Was a little tart. I think the sweetness is dependent on the fresh berries. Next time I will add a little sugar."
"I made this for my Persian friends and family and they said that it tasted like a Persian treat called "Alaska"."
"I used 1/2 qt. bag frozen blueberries and 1/2 qt. bag frozen raspberries. Everything else was the same. Was very easy and quick to make and tasted great. Served it with whipped cream and cookies."
"When I make this again I probably will not put the full 12 ounces of the lemonade in it, we thought it was just a little tart."
"SO easy, and so good on a hot summer day. My family loved it. It will definately be one of our favorites for the summer."
"It's a hit! Took it for a housewarming dinner, and it got raves...."
"The only thing I did, which gave it a better taste, was to add some Lite Cool Whip! Delicious!"
"It's very good and refreshing. Nice summer recipe. I think it would be good with blueberries instead of the strawberries too."
"This is so easy and so good. I froze in 1 cup containers so that just one person can eat a little at a time and not have it dry out."
"Wonderful - because of health reasons I used Frozen Yogurt. I will make again."
"This recipe is really light for summer. I love anything lemon. I used lower fat ice cream. Next time I might try frozen yogurt. Since it is not cooked I can use ny kind of ice cream or yogurt I want. Very convenient. Thanks."
"This is a wonderfully easy recipe! What other fruit can be substitued, for berries? Any ideas?"
"but want to know if u can sub. with sugar cream ice cream or frozen yogurt?"
"can u sub the vanilla ice cream with a sugar free ice cream or frozen yogurt?"
