What a surprise to see a recipe on the back of a packet of frozen raspberries that not only looked easy and simple but more importantly was a recipe for which I had all the ingredients at hand.
Okay, while my photo highlights my need to have lessons in photography and styling, I must reinforce that one “shouldn’t judge a book by its cover”. It was delicious and refreshing and I will make it again.
My lesson of the day is that recipes will sometimes find you. Too often I find myself wasting time looking for inspiration and a new recipe. Sometimes, however, the best recipes aren’t from that expensive recipe book you thought you needed but are the ones that just land in your lap.
Raspberry Dream Delight
1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup thickened cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 teaspoon honey (I would start with 1/2 teaspoon next time and add to taste)
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high speed until smooth.
Transfer to a plastic container with a lid, cover and freeze for 4 hours or until solid.
Let stand a few minutes at room temperature before serving.
