My husband and I pick lots of fruit at berry farms in the area and freeze it to enjoy all year long. This frozen dessert showcases both blueberries and strawberries and has a refreshing lemon flavor. —Bernice Russ, Bladenboro, North Carolina

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

"Very refreshing 4th of July dessert! Used vanilla greek yogurt (because it's what I had on hand) & portioned it out into 6 individual bowls. Not everyone was a fan of the mini marshmallows, but I enjoyed having them in the mix"

"easy, refreshing, liked the lemon juice, balanced out the sweetened condensed milk nicely. make sure the berries and strawberries are small and thinly sliced or frozen a little hard to eat."

"used vanilla chiboni yogurt (no added sugar in it) and made a nilla wafer crust with a bit of butter (to aid in removing from dish). I added a full container of blueberries and strawberries, so much more than what it called for, plus half a bag of marshmallows. Let it thaw a bit for best results. Hard frozen berries don't give off much taste, so the thaw is necessary."

"Took this to my Girls Nite Out Knitting and everybody raved about it. It's very refreshing, perfect for a hot day. I made some changes: 1 cup granola and 1 cup marshmallow instead of 2 cups marshmallow. Used walnuts instead of pecans cause that's all I have. Thanks for the recipe!"

"Hey, rebelwithoutaclue! How much Cool Whip did you use? I'm diabetic, so I cut sugar whenever I can, plus we don't care for marshmallows. Thanks for the tip! Made this recipe for the 4th of July. Family feedback was they really liked it; we're thinking the creamy lemon filling would be terrific served as a mousse or a pie filling using a thin sugar cookie crust! Also used sugar-free lemon yogurt instead of the plain. Excellent flavor; very refreshing! Forgot to mention that I used an 8oz container of Lite Cool Whip in place of the marshmallows."

"I made this recipe using a prepared graham cracker pie crust instead of the sugar cookie crust called for. The fillinf only came part way up the sides of the pie crust as I didn't realize the recipe was probably more for a tart type dessert. Nevertheless it was very good and easy. I would definitely make it again with graham cracker pie crust but next time I will double the filling recipe."

"I'm not real sure, but maybe you could use Coolwhip instead of marshmallows.  They are probably in there to lighten and sweeten the mixture, and Coolwhip would do the same.  If you're going for less calories and less fat, use the fat free version.
