    Absolutely delicious. The lime zest and basil (fresh from the garden) really brought out the flavor in strawberries that were not of the highest quality. Next time I'll try MarieBonCoeur's modifications for a healthier version.

    Made over Easter weekend but substituted fresh mint for the basil (the kids were really turned off by the idea of the basil with strawberry). I made a batch exactly as is with the fresh mint, and a separate low-fat/low sugar version. I took out the sugar all together, used fat free half and half, and added only a tablespoon of organic honey. The healthy version was albeit less creamy than the full fat one, but if I hadn't tasted them side-by-side I wouldn't have known the difference. Plus, I actually preferred the taste of the honey vs the granulated sugar. All in all, I would definitely do both versions again! So easy!

    Fabulous - I reduced sugar to 2/3 cup, and instead of whipping cream I used part half & half and part skim milk. Even though the basil sounds strange, it's delicious. Will def make again.

    Amazing! Made as written. Very bright and creamy. The basil adds a subtle, yet delicious supporting note to the strawberry and lime flavors.
