Author Notes: We love cool and creamy desserts or desserts with fruit and this dessert combines the best of both worlds. In the winter, we have been known to use the frozen triple berry blend, but we always add an extra package of the red raspberries. But right now, with the berries at their freshest...mmmm
Goes great with the raspberry chipotle flank steak! - lorigoldsby
