Kiwi Lime Strawberry Dessert



Print Friendly

 

This is a very versatile dessert. It is great for this time of year when we want lighter and easy desserts but the green and red and ease of preparing it make it great for Christmas too so you might want to file it with your Christmas desserts also.

This recipe calls for frozen strawberries but if you want to use fresh strawberries just chop the fresh strawberries and sprinkle with a little sugar. Let set overnight for a few hours and they will produce the juice that you need in the recipe.

The strawberry juice can be used to make strawberry sauce anytime for recipes like strawberry shortcake. Making it this way is much cheaper than buying the sauce in the packets and it tastes so much better. You can make any kind of berry sauce you want using the strawberry sauce recipe below. It requires no baking and it’s quick. Does it get any better than that?

      We have been Auda. I don’t think in all my years I have seen such awful damage from a tornado and to have more storms on top of that. I feel so bad for them. We are suppose to have storms today too and I have told everyone not to dink around and get to the basement. We get a little lax in that when we hear the sirens going here and we shouldn’t.

      Tawra is on her way with the baby to Colorado this morning and I am praying she can ” out run” the storms and gets there before they break out across I 70.

    I hope Tawra can out run the storms, also. best wishes on her move!. Here is N.J. we are just soaking with storm water and we are expecting thunder showers all week.

    Hope you can follow along to Colorado as soon as you can!

      Thanks Rose. Tawra made it there just great yesterday with no trouble. Even Jack was a good boy for her. (Of course I’m not surprised. All my grandkids are perfect. HA!HA! Spoken like a true grandma huh?)

      We got a huge majority of the moving truck load yesterday. It was a long day to say the least but the weather held and it didn’t rain or storm. The kids all worked like troopers and my son (Tawra’s brother) well let’s just say it wouldn’t have gotten done without him. Even my daughter in law with a sprained ankle tried to help.
