It’s fresh and light, but decadent at the same time and one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make…with just 4 simple ingredients!

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY DESSERT FOR TWO

  2. 5 stars
    I made the Easy Strawberry Orange Dessert and the description of it was spot on – so easy and sooooo delicious and definitely a cocktail and dessert all in one! My party of 5 all loved it and wanted seconds! I doubled all the ingredients except for the sugar as I didn’t want it too sweet. I served it with French vanilla ice-cream and it was sweet enough! Thank you Christine!
