First off, let me say that this is not my original recipe or picture. Her picture turned out much better than mine and I wanted you to get the full effect of how wonderful this really is. However, I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it with you. I served this as my fruit cup before breakfast, but I think it would make a wonderful after dinner dessert as well. This recipe and picture came from shewearsmanyhats.com.
