What is Fruit Cream?
It is a simple mixture of cream and yogurt that is loaded with fresh fruits and nuts.
It is an instant dessert, that you can make just in 10 minutes. But don’t forget to chill it before you eat, because it tastes the best when chilled.
While the fruits adds different flavours to the creamy mixture of cream and yogurt, dry fruits adds a nice crunch to the dish.
I have used almonds, cashews and pistachios, but you can also use walnuts and other nuts of your choice.
You can also make a Shahi Fruit Cream, by adding saffron, cardamom powder, rose water and rose petals in the cream along with fruits and nuts.
It tastes delicious too.
Which Fruits can be used in this recipe?
I have used strawberry, orange, apple, kiwi, grapes, banana, pomegranate, mango in this recipe, but you can add any fruits of your choice such as Chikoo, Raspberries, Papaya, Custard Apple, Cantaloupe, Black Grapes etc.
Make sure to add seasonal fruits as much as you can, because they are fresh and also contains a lot of nutrition.
You can also skip any of the fruits, if you don’t like the taste and or its not available.
Make this with whatever fruits are available easily.
But for me, adding mangoes are a must in this, because it’s my favourite and it just enhances the overall taste of this dish.
