Of course you can substitute raspberries for the strawberries; blackberries can be substituted for the blueberries the finished product will still be red, white, & blue. To save calories, light coconut milk can also be used with good results. If this is a dessert for an outdoor party or picnic, you can serve it in small paper cups; guests can either drink it or use a spoon.
