As its name suggests, this gorgeous creamy dessert is simply heavenly. A deliciously decadent mix of rich Meadow Fresh Cream and smooth Meadow Fresh Sour Cream combine with the tropical flavours of fresh pineapple and juicy mandarins, with toasted coconut threads and bright freeze-dried pomegranate seeds (or berries) adding the perfect touch of texture and colour. This fabulous dessert makes a fitting finale to a summer dinner party – and as it’s made in advance and takes only minutes to prepare, it provides maximum impact with minimum effort. Love it.
