Cool Strawberry Cream

This fruity luscious dessert makes a wonderful ending to a special dinner. When fresh strawberries are not available, I substitute frozen unsweetened berries, thawed and drained. —Joyce Cooper, Mount Forest, Ontario

    Really lived up to its name. Cool, refreshing and easy. I was in a hurry so I didn't make the sauce but I hope to next time.

    Love it. A tasty alternative to ice cream. I used strawberry jam instead of all the sugar, also to boost up the berry flavor and left half the berries sliced as someone else suggested. Didn't make the sauce as I didn't have the blueberries. This would be good with frozen strawberries as the juice would amp the flavor.

    Made this recipe for Chruch function this past weekend...sliced the strawberries instead of mash. Everyone raved including myself. Good on it's own but the blueberry sauce adds that delicious extra. Thaw time could be about 5 minutes longer. Would definately make again and am handing out copies of recipe.

    I would not use the sauce, it seems it would be sweet enough without it. I would alternate using strawberries and blueberries to make it. Also it does not look like the strawberries are all mashed according to the photo anyway. I will make this though because my daughter LOVES anything with strawberries in it!!

    The dessert is made with strawberries and the sauce that goes with it is with blueberries.
