This delightful dessert is ready in a short 15 minutes and full of sweet fruit flavors and a creamy whipped topping. The secret ingredient, a bit of diet lemon-lime soda! Have your guests try and guess that after they begin to rave over this dish. Ideal for a post-dinner dish, you can also serve as a wonderful brunch dish or a cool afternoon treat. This recipe doubles very easily to serve a crowd in short-order. Try other herbs in place of the basil for different flavor profiles. Rosemary gives the dish a woodsy flavor while fresh lavender adds a bright floral note. Basil is also a good choice to make the dish more unique.
