    This is delicious!! Perfect to have about a summer BBQ

    This tasted Devine. Lots of compliments, even though I took it out of the freezer for too long before serving it (about an hour but it was in the fridge) and it became too soft and a bit runny.

    OMG, I’m desperate for this dessert to come out of the freezer! Licking the bowl was pure heaven 😋

    The perfect dessert for summer.  Everyone loved it.

    I have made it quite a few days before I needed it, covered it and froze it. Just leave it out to defrost a good half hour before you would like to cut it xx

    I made this originally for Christmas, and now make it regularly for guests, delicious and easy dessert that is made day before so it's one less dish to cook on the day.

    About to try. How long can it be kept frozen before using

  • 22. February 2015 - 21:32

    Delicious and very easy. Left out the rum as the kids were having it. Will be making this one again. It served 8, if I was making it for a large group I'd double the filling

  • 20. February 2015 - 16:02

    Very easy to make. I added more lime juice for extra zing.
