Perfect on hot summer days, whether it replace the traditional Christmas pudding or becomes the cool cake for birthdays, this beauty looks good and tastes even better.
Remember white Christmas slice? Melted chocolate loaded with candied fruits and processed cereals… Remember ice cream, creamy vanilla ice cream on a hot summers day… We do. So we came up with a recipe that incorporates those memories, our festive semifreddo. If you’re unsure what exactly semifreddo is compared to ice cream, well in Italian it means half-cold and is like a frozen mousse in terms of texture. A basic semifreddo doesn’t have the custard base that ice cream has and doesn’t require any stove top or churning time, but tastes just as good.
Combining a gluten free muesli and fruit with a basic semifreddo recipe we were able to make this gluten free, refined sugar free and the option of dairy free or simply lactose free.
I won’t tell you anymore other than to say it really does hit the spot on a hot day… and doesn’t take much to make.
