Serving Suggestions


  • The juice of two lemons is about 1/2 cup or 125ml.
  • I was really surprised at how the mixture thickened nicely after the lemon juice was poured in and whipped. I expected it to be runny but it was exactly the opposite and even firmer after refrigeration.
  • I used my stick blender for this recipe and that minimised the washing up.
  • This recipe was created by Jennifer Cheung for Kidspot, New Zealand’s best recipe finder.
