Red, White and Blue Sorbet Frozen Dessert with Whipped Cream and Fresh Fruit

red, white, and blue sorbet with whipped cream and fresh fruit
I think the dog days of summer are upon us! The heat has taken over and the grass is turning brown. My black Lab, Cayman, has buried herself in the mulch trying to get some relief from the heat.

There is nothing like an ice-cold treat when it is hot outside. This frozen layered dessert has 3 flavors of Sorbet. Any three will do. Just pick your favorites. I served this dessert for the Fourth of July and chose sorbet with the colors red, white, and blue. Raspberry, lemon and blueberry sorbet were my flavors.
In the picture the three flavors of sorbet are swirled. This happened totally by accident! I was in a hurry and did not freeze each layer separately. Sometimes when you are in a hurry the prettiest things happen. Doc says this tastes like something you would eat in a fancy restaurant. Enjoy Friends!

Red, White and Blue Sorbet with Whipped Cream and Fresh Fruit

Mini Golden Oreos
3 pints of your favorite flavors of sorbet
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Fresh fruit

With scissors, cut a circle of parchment paper to cover the bottom of a 7-inch spring form pan. Line the parchment paper with a layer of mini golden Oreos. Slightly thaw 3 pints of sorbet. Spoon one pint on top of the Oreos, pressing down to flatten. Layer the other two flavors on top of the first. Don’t worry of some of the sorbet colors mix as you flatten them. This will make the dessert look swirled. Freeze until firm. Whip heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar together until peaks form. Gently spoon on top of the sorbet. Garnish with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
