For a simply elegant dessert, look no further than your own kitchen. Seasonal fruit, evaporated milk and lime juice create a dish that’s fresh and easy.
- 1 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 8 cups sliced seasonal fruit or berries, such as mangos and strawberries
- Spiced chopped nuts (optional)
POUR evaporated milk into small mixer bowl; place beaters into mixture. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until ice crystals form around edge of bowl. Meanwhile, place about 1 cup fruit in each of eight dessert dishes.
BEAT evaporated milk on high speed for 1 minute or until very frothy. Gradually add sugar and lime juice; continue beating for 2 minutes or until mixture is stiff. Immediately top each serving of fruit with about ½ cup whipped topping. Sprinkle with nuts.
NOTE: For whipped evaporated milk that holds up to 30 minutes: Sprinkle 1 teaspoon gelatin over 2 tablespoons water in small, microwave-safe bowl; let stand for 2 minutes. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 40 seconds; stir. Let stand for additional 2 minutes or until dissolved. Pour 1 cup evaporated milk and dissolved gelatin into small mixer bowl; follow recipe above. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes.
