What comes to your mind when you hear the word Fruit cream? Perhaps some chopped fruits mixed with cream. Right? I am sure 99% people think the same about this out of the world delight. But, trust me, it’s more than that.
For me, Fruit Cream is an art.
It’s an edible piece of art, splashed with the variant colors of natural fruits dipped in perfect white snowy cream and flavored with deep spices like cardamons & cloves.
I learnt the recipe as usual from my father and the best memories I have is from the occasions at home. For every occasion, be it my birthday, my brother’s birthday, mom’s birthday etc etc, dad always prefers to prepare fruit cream in dessert. This being his favorite, he always make sure to get it prepared no matter what. 🙂 Some people make it bit runny but I always prefer it to be thick and loaded with fresh fruits. The flavor, the texture, the looks etc needs a lot of efforts but the end result is simply out of the world.
Let’s have a look on my version of Fruit Cream!
Preparation time: 20 mins
Chilling time: 2 hours
Chopped mixed fruits
I took 2 apple, 1 orange, 2 bananas, 1/2 pineapple, 1 pear, 1 pomegranate
4 Green cardamoms & 4 cloves – Finely powdered
Amul cream or dairy cream – 1 pack or 1/2 kg
Powdered sugar – 1 cup
I prefer low sugar diet. You may add according to your taste.
Richs Whipping cream – 1/2 cup
1 icing nozzle along with icing bag
Orange color or Saffron strands
Take dairy cream in a bowl.
Add sugar along with cardamom and cloves
Whip it on a high speed till the time it becomes frothy and doubles.
Add fruits and mix it well.
[You may also add 1 cup condensed milk in case you want. It will add extra flavor and texture to the fruit cream.]
Now arrange it in a borosil bowl.
Take the Richs cream and whip it on high speed till soft peaks are formed. Add color while whipping only so that it spreads out evenly. Now fill the icing bag and decorate the fruit cream according to yourself. Arrange cherries and silver balls to make it more appealing.
Refrigerate it for 2 hours and serve chilled! 🙂
