The lemon and berry cream is incredibly simple and so delicious.


250g mascarpone cheese

180ml sweetened condensed milk

2 lemons, juiced, zest finely grated

250g mixed fresh berries, plus extra to serve

375ml thickened cream



Place the mascarpone, condensed milk, and lemon juice and zest in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

Purée the berries in a blender. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and stir into the lemon mixture.

Place the cream in a small bowl and whip it with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

Fold the cream into the lemon and berry mixture, then spoon the lemon and berry cream evenly into 6-8 glasses or dishes.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours or until required. Top with the extra berries and serve.
