Blueberries with Frozen Lemon Cream

Posted by Marie on Jul 23, 2014

Simple, delicious and summery.  There is not much more to say about this delightfully straightforward but surprisingly decadent dessert.

2 cups (480 ml) heavy cream
1/2 cup (120 ml) icing sugar
1/2 cup (120 ml) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 ml) lemon rind
2 cups (480 ml) fresh blueberries

001Whisk together the cream, sugar, lemon juice and rind in a medium glass bowl (one that can go in your freezer).

Cover and pop in the freezer.  You don't need any special equipment for this dessert.  To get a lusciously creamy texture just whisk it every half hour or so, scraping the frozen cream into the mixture until it is semi-frozen.

I like to use it before it has frozen solidly and has the consistency of soft-serve ice-cream.  But you can let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving if it is frozen solid.

Scoop into bowls, top with berries and serve.

We have had a week straight of very hot weather; this is when I look for recipes that are quick to cook and best eaten cold, and this salad is exactly that.  The yogurt/mayo combination lightens the dressing up and the addition of mango chutney and chopped fresh mango adds a delicious bright taste to […] MORE»

Peaches…in all their fuzzy glory!  This recipe is an absolute snap to make and tastes delicious.  I like the idea of pairing fruit with fresh herbs (pears and thyme, apricots and rosemary).  Enjoy these easy to make peaches with a spoon of vanilla bean ice-cream or frozen vanilla yogurt, or, as I love them, still […] MORE»

Chopped Salad

Posted by Marie on Jul 14, 2014
Grandson is visiting, so wanted to make a salad I though he would really enjoy.  Fortunately, and perhaps a bit unusual for a fifteen-year-old, he is into healthy eating!!  This salad is easy to make, fresh, healthy and flavourful.  The lime juice in the dressing really brightens this salad up, and the cumin gives it […] MORE»
