I love Semifreddo like a Christmas dessert, is delicious, simple and you can make the day before.
You can use frozen or fresh strawberries or if you prefer raspberries.
Serve garnished with some strawberries and mint leaves.
Balsamic strawberries is something special.
Note: the original recipe was with cream cheese but I change by greek yogurt and was amazing!
