MY REVIEW

I made this recipe and it turned out fabulous, just what I needed on a hot summer day! I will, however, use half as much vanilla extract next time I make it.

I'd use graham cracker crust instead of pastry crust. That's the way my mother always made it--delicious!!!!

MY REVIEW

I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit. It was very easy to make and it was so refreshing and delicious. It was also one of the few healthy desserts at the family gathering, which is why I made it. I loved how tasty and low fat it was! I will definitely be making this again.
