I had just bought all these fresh berries and didn't know what to do, beside eat them right out of the bowl, lol. I thought a fresh creamy pie or dessert bars would be good. And to top it off with fresh berries to give a taste of the soon to be here summer. Delicious, not heavy, very refreshing tasting!
