“This is a quick, healthy, yummy dessert that everybody in my family loved! From the August issue of Better Homes & Gardens -- It took less than 20 minutes to prepare and you can customize it by adding your favorite berries. Sweet with only 1/2 cup sugar in the whole thing! The recipe called for 1 Tbsp. fresh snipped basil to be added with the dry ingredients, but I omitted it and it was wonderful!”
