I didn't use fresh strawberries in this dessert, but rather used whole unsweetened strawberries I had frozen last year. I thawed them in the microwave and pureed them in the blender.
This turned out to be a very refreshing dessert. I didn't have fresh strawberries to garnish it with, but I did have some whipping cream that needed to be used, so garnished it with real whipped cream.
The next day, I served the dessert again to other guests (there was still plenty of it in the freezer.) Only by then, we had gone strawberry picking, so I added a few fresh strawberries to each serving in addition to the whipped cream.
The recipe says to take the dessert out of the freezer about 10 minutes before serving. We noticed that taking it out about 15 minutes before serving was even better.
If it's hot where you are this week, perhaps your family would enjoy this frosty dessert too. If you garnished this with a few fresh blueberries in addition to strawberries and whipped cream, it would take on a pretty patriotic look.
