Return dish to freezer; freeze for 1 hour more.

This turned out just great. What a wonderful and refreshing end to a meal. I am inspired to learn how to make more flavors. I would like to lemon next. I think this could be savory too for a summer luncheon. What about ripe tomatoes from the garden with fresh basil?
