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

"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."

"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! :)"
