Reviews for Patriotic Frozen Delight
"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."
" This is a great treat right now with all the fresh fruit available. I also made a graham cracker crust and substituted cool whip for the marshmallows. Must sit out at least an hour to cut into squares."
"This was delicious! I would not add or change any ingredients. The only problem I had was that it froze so hard that even after an hour out of the freezer it was still solidly frozen and difficult to cut."
"This recipe sounds great"
"I love the recipe, it sounds yummy for a hot summer day but I would leave out the marshmallows, dont like them and just add a little more fruit and use lemon yogurt."
"Great lemony taste! I put a graham cracker crust on the bottom, and I think that made it even better! :)"
"I made a the Patriotic Frozen Delight, except I left out the marshmallow & pecans and sub sour cream for the yogurt. We loved it and will make it again many times. V.Thompson"
"I made the flag cake and took it to a church meeting. All the ladies loved it. Janette Forbes"
"LOVED this recipe. Very easy and my kiddos helps and had a great time. Quick easy and cool for summertime. I definately recommend this one!"
"This dessert was absolutely fabulous! We loved the lemon taste. We had friends over for dinner after church Sunday and they all agreed it was a "make again". Looks so pretty as well with the red, white and blue! DA"
"This desert was very good. I made it the night before and froze it and took it out half hour before serving and should have taken it out at least an hour before serving it was still frozen and hard to cut. Everyone enjoyed it and I will be making it again."
"I altered this recipe just a bit, and it was just fantastic. A huge hit with our large 4th of July gathering (in Phoenix, where it can reach 115 degrees on that day.) I made a granola crust in the pan and then spread the mixture on top. Fabulous!"
"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 took this recipe to a family gathering on the weekend and boy was it a hit!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe how quickly it disappeared. I didn't have a chance to try any myself - guess I'll have to make another one real soon. Eleanor D. Ontgario Canada"
"I made this recipe for a party I had last weekend. Kids and adults both raved about how refreshing it was. I will make this again."
"My family loves fresh fruit and had my family and gradson in for a cook out - this was a real hit! Definately be making it again this summer!Love the fact that it is light yet so good for you."
"Lower fat condensed milk would help the calorie content..."
"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.Pat"
"Sugar is in the SWEETENED condensed milk - no need for more"
"Hubby is on low fat/low cholesterol diet, so I will make this with fat free sweetened condensed milk. Sounds like a yummy summertime dessert!"
"HERE'S A WEBSITE TO MAKE A SUGAR-FREE CONDENSED MILK. http://www.recipegoldmine.com/nosugaradded/sugar-free-sweeten-conden.html HOPE THIS HELPS."
"This looks very good, but no way can I make this, as I am a diabetic. Doesn't look like I can adapt it to be less sugar."
"what can i substitute for marshmallo?"
"WOW, sweetened condensed milk and marshmallows...lots of sugar!"
"Can frozen blueberries and strawberries be used successfully."
"I believe that the strawberries have 4 gr of fiber and the blueberries 3.5 gr. When you divide that among the 12 pieces that's only .62 grams per piece. Perhaps it needs to be more than that to be listed.
"To aseneca, The condensed milk is what takes the place of sugar. It is very sweet. This recipe sounds very delicious and I will try it this weekend."
"What is the difference in all the different kinds of Polish sausage, it it just spices, or also different meats?"
"Re: Patriotic Frozen DelightWith the condensed milk, yogurt,and marshmallows, where is the sugar g?"
"I'm just wondering how there can be no fiber in this recipe with the fresh fruits?"
