  1. I should try this one for my little one. We love desserts in my household but we don’t always make it ourselves. This looks yummy.

  2. This looks delicious! I’ve never used sour cream for a cream base in a dessert so this sounds super interesting and I will totally be giving a try! I’m on a strict diet right now but sour cream is an okay food!

  3. I do not use sour cream in very many dishes, only because I am nervous about how it will taste. This looks and sounds delicious. I will have to try using sour cream for more than what I use it for.

  4. I need something to indulge into. And this is a great recipe to try. But I will use peach or mango instead.

  5. Nice. I could see this is going to be part of my diet from now on. I tried so many different style of yogurt and I love all of them and I truly think yogurt is probably one of the best food in the world.

  6. Now that the warmer months are here, we are definitely looking for treats like this. I am definitely going to be trying this!
