I have had this recipe for years and make it when I need a cold dessert and have nothing in the house! That is the reasoning my friend gave to me when she gave me this recipe. If you have a can of fruit and some cream you can make this look special. If liked you can also add a few drops of food colouring to the mix to give the colour you like. Prep/cook time does not include setting time.
