A refreshing pud for the early summer. Lime and chocolate creams are best served really well chilled from the fridge, and this dessert takes less than 10 minutes to prepare!
Ingredients
  • 100g good quality milk or dark chocolate
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • The juice and fine zest of 2 limes
  • 300ml double cream
  • A little soft brown sugar to crumble over the top
Instructions
  1. First we need to create a lime syrup. Squeeze the lime juice into a small pan and grate in the lime zest. Add the water and the sugar and gently heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Stir everything together well and remove from the heat, allowing the mixture to cool slightly.
  2. Pour the double cream into a mixing bowl and pour the cooled lime syrup over the top. Whisk the mixture together until firm and beginning to peak.
  3. Grate the chocolate on a course grater (not fine). Put a little of the chocolate to one side to save for the topping and mix the rest into the lime cream.
  4. Divide the chocolate lime cream into individual glasses and chill in the fridge until ready to serve. This dessert is nice really cold.
  5. When ready to serve, remove the glasses from the fridge and sprinkle over with the grated chocolate you reserved and a little soft brown sugar.
Notes
Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or an hour if you can wait that long.
