This is a super-easy strawberry and blueberry dessert recipe. The berries are spooned over raspberry sherbet and yogurt or whipped cream is spooned onto the berries. 

The fact that it's a red, white, and blue dessert makes it perfect for the 4th of July or any summer cookout or gathering and is a blank canvas for almost limitless variations.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries

  • 1 to 2 cups blueberries

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar, to taste and optional

  • 8 to 12 small scoops raspberry or strawberry sherbet

  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla or lemon yogurt

  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Wash berries; hull and slice the strawberries. Stem the blueberries.

  3. Put all of the berries in a bowl and add the optional 2 to 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar. Let stand for about 20 minutes for the juices to come out.

  4. Scoop half of the sherbet into 4 to 6 dessert dishes, brandy snifters, martini glasses, or other dish or glass.

  5. Spoon half of the strawberry-blueberry mixture over the sherbet, and then top with a few tablespoons of yogurt, whipped topping or whipped cream.

  6. Repeat with the remaining sherbet, berries, and topping. Garnish with a sprig of mint if you'd like.

Recipe Variations

  • Use frozen, thawed whipped topping instead of the fresh whipped cream or yogurt.
  • Top the fruit with a vanilla custard sauce instead of yogurt, or use a lemon sauce.
  • Add red raspberries or blackberries to the berry mixture.
  • Top the yogurt, whipped topping, or whipped cream with coarsely chopped pecans, granola, or vanilla cookie crumbs.
