Summer Berry Terrine
Why I Love This Recipe
Bursting with berries, a perfect light dessert for the Fourth of July or anytime that fresh berries are in season
Ingredients You'll Need
4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh raspberries
2/3 cup water
1 (.25 ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin
2/3 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup whipping cream
Reduced -fat frozen whipped topping
Sprigs of fresh mint
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; toss gently.
Sprinkle gelatin and SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener over water in a small saucepan; let stand 1 minute. Cook over low heat, stirring until gelatin dissolves (about 2 minutes). Stir in vanilla. Set aside.
Beat whipping cream until soft peaks form; set aside.
Place saucepan containing gelatin mixture in a bowl of ice water; stir with a rubber spatula until gelatin mixture is the consistency of unbeaten egg white. Remove from ice water; quickly, stir in whipped cream. Spoon the cream mixture over berries, tossing gently to coat.
Spoon mixture into a lightly oiled 8-inch loaf pan; cover and chill for 45 minutes or until set. Unmold onto a cutting board and slice into 8 servings. Garnish, if desired.
