This is to die for! Delicious and easy. The perfect topping for fresh fruit! I think I'll add cubed pound cake in addition to the fruit next time!

I was looking for a healthy summertime dessert, so I used low-fat whipped topping and a bit less sugar. Even with less sugar, my husband and I thought this was way too sugary! Next time I will not add any sugar to the fruit and only about half the specified amount to the whipped cream mixture, the fresh fruit has plenty of natural sugar. Also, I halved the amount of lemon juice and we found the flavor (besides the sugar) to be perfect. With a few modifications this could be a great dessert!

I made this for the valentine dinner dessert last year and it got rave reviews from my husband (who is a stiff critic). I passed the recipe to my mother, who used frozen blueberries instead of fresh, and made it in advance. Her blueberries ran, and I think it messed up the consistency, so I would stick w/ fresh berries as the recipie reads.

This is absolutely delicious! I don't like desserts that are TOO sweet, so this is right up my alley. Instead of heavy cream and sugar, I just used Cool Whip mixed with the zest of one lemon, plus a little fresh lemon juice, then put in the freezer for about 2-3 hours. I have even tried sprinkling the top with chopped pecans. Light and yummy, and my guests always love it!

Very good. You do have to be careful not to overbeat the cream, I beat it until it had peaks and it made it a little too heavy. I'm definately going to make this again.

Made this without lemon extract, as I had none. Very good and simple.
