I strongly recommend using fresh blackberries in this recipe for best flavor. Raspberries, strawberries or a combination of all three may be used, but they should all be fresh.

What a simple, yet elegant dessert! This was so easy to put together and tasted really good. I used a combination of blackberries and raspberries. I opted to use vanilla instead of almond extract for the cream mixture and tossed the berries in just a bit of regular sugar vs. confectioners' sugar. I left off the mint and chose to garnish these with just the lemon zest - overall, very good!

With all the ingredients ready and waiting right at my fingertips I devilishly made this for breakfast this morning. I used both blackberries and raspberries but rather than mixing the berries with powdered sugar I thought it would be even better to mix them with leftover homemade raspberry sauce! It was easy, quick, fresh and delicious and very pretty in little parfait glasses. I mean, who doesn't like berries and cream? However, while it was only a small amount, I would have preferred this without the sour cream, which provided just enough tang to make it not as pleasantly sweet as just simple whipped cream - it was a step and ingredient that didn't necessarily make it better.

I guess I am odd man out here, as all other reviewers enjoyed the dessert. I followed the directions exactly, but most of my guests and I found the dessert bland. It looked nice and had a pleasant mousse-like texture, but the taste was really uninteresting. I much prefer the Lemon Lime Mousse recipe on this website, for a refreshing, light dessert.
