Frozen Ginger Lemon Whip with Blueberry Sauce – Completion day!

Is it warming up where you are yet? We’ve had a nice mix of Spring weather here in the mid-atlantic. Some days are still only in the 50’s and others get up into the 70’s. I simply love Spring. It’s my favorite time of year.

I love when the daffodils and crocus push themselves out of the ground and brighten up the day. Seeing the buds on the trees swell and then burst into colorful flowers and then the Chartreuse green of new foliage.

Gardening is a passion of mine. I enjoy taking a walk around my house to look at all the new growth (and weeds). The songs of the red and yellow finches filling the air as they return to the feeders. Sometimes there’s a glimpse of mating Cardinals that come through the yard. There are always Robins that set up nests in the shrubs and curse at me when I get too close.

Have you ever sat and watched a bird fledge? It’s amazing. And kinda sad at the same time. I’ve seen many birds take flight for the first time and I always have this desire to go help the poor thing. A mama’s intuition never stops.

Ginger and Lemon Curd lightened with Whipped Cream and then frozen. Topped with warm blueberry sauce. The perfect spring dessert. From dietersdownfall.comIn celebration of Spring, I made a light and refreshing frozen dessert. The heat from the ginger and the tang from the lemon are muted when combined with  the whipped cream.

Today I’m taking these whips out of the freezer and topping them with some sweetened blueberry sauce. The three flavors combined were simply amazing. Let the whips thaw for a few minutes before serving to allow for the creamy texture to come though and not have an icy or grainy texture.

I think this would make a wonderful dessert after an al fresco barbecue.

Also, food always tastes better when there is a beautiful flower centerpiece.  It’s a fact 😉
