Recipe: Berry Christmas Dessert


Serves 6

¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 cup whipping cream

1 can sweetened condensed milk

⅔ cup frozen red berries (strawberries, raspberries, etc.)



Blend lemon juice, cream, condensed milk, and berries on high for 6–10 minutes, occasionally scraping down the sides. Pour into small wine glasses, cover, and refrigerate until set (3 hours).


Mint Syrup

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

2 cups mint leaves

Plunge mint leaves in boiling water for 30 seconds. Transfer to ice water. Drain and set aside. In a pan, boil sugar and water until sugar dissolves. Let cool. Blend on high with blanched mint leaves. Strain through a fine sieve. Pour mint syrup on the surface of the berry dessert and serve extra on the side.
