I had to put this up. It made such a pretty picture, I had to share it with you guys. Super easy to make and superior in taste …. this is like a super strawberry surprise!! 🙂
Very similar to the mango pudding recipe which I put up a few days back, you can substitute with any berry or seasonal fruit. But with strawberry, the outcome is tangy sweet creamy and simply delish!
To make 2 servings –
- 12-15 digestive biscuits, I used Brittania Marie
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 150 gms, fresh cream
- 20 strawberries, chopped fine, save a few straight pieces for garnishing.
- 2-3 tbsp sugar or according to taste
- 2 drops vanilla essence or extract
- To garnish: chocolate shavings and mint leaves.
Coarsely crush the digestive biscuits using your palms and fingers. Now add melted butter and rub it well. Knead and make a sticky coarse powder. Now take in a bowl or individual dessert cups, lay the powdered buttered biscuit. Press it tight to make a base.
Freeze it for 10 minutes.
Till then, take your chopped fruit, add sugar in it and keep aside. Add essence to the cream. Whip your cream into a nice fluffy consistency. Take care not to overbeat it or butter it. The sugarred chopped fruit would have become mushy and glossy with the sugar and fruit juice. Mix the cream and the entire fruit sugar mix. Again mix with gentle hands.
Now remove the biscuit base, spread this fruity cream on it. Garnish with fruits, cream, mint leaves. Chill for atleast 30 minutes. Relish the tartness and sweetness of strawberries with rich super smooth cream along with a layer of crunchy biscuits.
One of my very dear friend has helped with this recipe. Its her own experiment and invention. So, this one is for you, Preeti. Thank You.
One last longing look:
