My grandmother used to make this. It's wonderful for the summer because it's so light and cool tasting. I've made it as a special treat for family and friends and have always received rave reviews. It's nice to see the recipe again. I've gone the lazy route and switched to Jello and Cool Whip. It doesn't taste the same but not bad either.
