Red, White and Blue Dessert

"But Mom, it's so, well, a little hokey."

This is not one in my collection but when I saw it last year, I thought - sounds fresh, rich and tasty and perfect for the fourth with the, well, flag inspired design. Perfect for us Americans....

    Place a third of the mixture in a 4-qt. bowl.
    Reserve 20 strawberry halves and 1/2 cup blueberries for garnish.
    Layer half of the remaining strawberries and blueberries over cream mixture.
