Garden Berries Dessert - Trifle
Is it a trifle ? What's in a name ?
Nothing beats the fruits from one's own garden. My fruits of labour - strawberries, red and black currants, and raspberries. Today will be start of summer so this is a welcome summer dessert.
A simple quick dessert that will wow your guests upon presentation. It's fresh and light and will not disappoint.
About 100gm each - fresh berries (like what I harvested from garden, strawberries, red n black currants and yellow raspberries)
Or fruits like pineapple, mango, etc (cut into bite size or at least spoon size)
500gm fresh cheese or yoghurt (or 50% each mixed)
Black currant cordial (I used my own homemade)
Amaretti (coarsely crushed )
In a tall glass, pour in 2 tbsp black currant cordial.
Fill 1/3 of glass with fresh cheese/yoghurt.
Then fill up with fruits till overflowing :-)
Sprinkle over with crushed amaretti and serve.
Note: You may add or replace cordial with eggnog or any fruit liqueur
