Recipe: Almond Cream


Almond Cream

If you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert for Mother’s Day, this simple Almond Cream is perfect! It only takes a few minutes to make, requires no skill in the kitchen, and tastes like a special occasion! I like to serve it with raspberries, but any fresh berries, stone fruit or even a compote will compliment the light almond flavor.


Especially if you are serving a rich dinner, Almond Cream is a dessert that is light and will satisfy your sweet tooth without leaving you feeling stuffed.
