My Aunt used to make this dessert every Christmas and I loved it. She was a strict Baptist so she never added the sin bit that I’ve put in – but my attraction to sin always did make me the black sheep of the family.
Its super quick to whip up.
500 grams of chopped strawberries ( don’t make the pieces too small) halves is usually okay unless they are those enormous G.M strawberries that the supermarket shelves are now full of.
1 sliced banana
1/4 cup of liqueur , – there’s the dash of sin. I used limoncello but cointreau would work, as would grand marnier, brandy, champagne etc. If you don’t want the alcohol you can omit it.
Leave this to marinade for about 1 hour in the fridge
2 cups of chopped marshmallows
1 cup of grated eating chocolate, I used Lindt Dark Strawberry Intense, but Toblerone would be great or Lindt Dark Chilli Chocolate.
300 mlx of thickened cream whipped
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh mint
Gently combine this with the fruit.
Serve in a glass and sprinkle fresh mint on top – voila – a kinda healthy dessert – well it has got fruit in it so that means no calories right?
