Strawberry Sorbet Sensation

On hot days in Colorado, we chill out with slices of this berries-and-cream dessert. The layered effect is so much fun. Use any flavor of sorbet you like. —Kendra Doss, Colorado Springs, Colorado

    This is a great cool dessert! My family loves this and it is so striking on a plate. I've also made the cream layer with a lemon flavor that is to die for

    Creamy and cool, this dessert was well received at my book club. I used raspberry sorbet, drizzled a little chocolate syrup and served some shortbread cookies with it.

    It's something different AND it's so pretty! Catches the eye for a great presentation. Plus it tastes refreshing on a warm day.

    Easy to make and delicious, this refreshing dessert is equally good with other flavors of sorbet. It's always a hit, and looks beautiful when plated, too.

    Absolutely delicious--my guests loved it! I did add 1 cup diced fresh strawberries to the pudding layer and I had extra strawberries that had been flavored with Splenda for a topping. I will definitely make this again!

    I'm ready to make this, but I'm wondering if the pudding amount is correct? A 1 oz package? Help please?!!

    I also found it strange that after saying it was excellent she only gave it one star.As far as the difference between sorbet and sherbet, sorbet is just plain fruit that is blended and frozen. while sherbet is blended fruit that has sugar added. they are both great. and this recipe turned out great too
