'My husband and I pick lots of fruit at berry farms in the area and freeze it to enjoy all year long,' relates Bernice Russ of Bladenboro, North Carolina. 'This frozen dessert showcases both blueberries and strawberries and has a refreshing lemon flavor.'

I'm always hesitant to try a recipe that doesn't have a lot of good reviews, but I needed to use up some berries and plain yogurt on hand, and it was the 4th of July, so I gave it a whirl. It was awesome! I took it to a family gathering and got really good reviews. The only thing I did different was to almost double the fruit (I love fruit!) and I left the pecans on the side to sprinkle cuz some of the kids don't like nuts. I served it over cinnamon graham crackers. Awesome recipe!! Thanks :-) Read More

I used vanilla yogurt and it was wonderful!! I will be making this again. The lemon back flavor is very delicate BUT it really makes this special. I did not use pecans (I used them up in the broccoli salad) but no one missed them!! Read More

This is very good and pleasing to the eye. Net time however I may use Vanilla Yogurt as others suggested. and BTW, it keeps quite well in the freezer. Read More

I thought this was really good! I did make a couple of changes, though I feel the recipe would be worth 5 stars regardless. I used vanilla yogurt (because that's what I had, and I like things a bit sweeter) and didn't have any grated lemon peel, so I left that out. I love pecans, but because of a family member's nut allergy, opted to leave them out; I think I would've enjoyed it more WITH the nuts, but it was still wonderful without. I used a medley of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, and used quite a bit more than the recipe called for...couldn't hurt. My only recommendation is, I needed it to sit out for much longer than 15-20 minutes before serving it...mine was out close to 30 minutes, I popped in the microwave to defrost for a bit, and my fruit was STILL a bit frozen...no one seemed to mind though. All in all, a great recipe; thanks for sharing. :) Read More

I made this for 4th of July and it was awesome! I recommend eating it when it's still super cold - then it almost has a popsicle consistancy. It's sooo yummy! Read More

This recipe looks better than it tastes. The red, white, and blue color make it perfect for an Independence Day celebration. And there's nothing wrong with the flavor. It's good, but not great. When frozen, the consistency is partly reminiscent of ice crystals, which may be refreshing, but not particularly appetizing. In fairness, I must say that I have never been a huge fan of marshmallows. The fresh fruit and undercurrent of lemon is great. I used raspberries in place of strawberries. As one other reviewer noted, vanilla yogurt may be a better choice than plain. It's at least worth trying. Read More

Delicious, left out the pecans but added coconut. Also added blackberries. Very easy... For less attractive serving - just stir all together and pour into pan. Read More

I made this exactly as written. Even though it was not a bad taste, it did not really impress me either. I actually liked it better once it had thawed completely and it was the texture of yogurt with fruit. I will probably not make this again. Read More

I didn't have any fresh berries, so I used Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce. (It is almost Christmas and I just sounded good!) It turned out great! My husband and I loved it. Thanks for a great, easy, and versatile dessert! Read More
