You could use it to make a creamy pasta sauce.

Or just eat it with a spoon?

Mix with pesto or tomato sauce for pasta
Grate some apple or blend some fruit in it, refrigerate and eat as mousse
Mix will icing sugar and a vanilla pod, leave overnight in the fridge then use it to fill pastries or cakes. Ditto with a drop of amaretto but that's less child friendly Smile.

Izlet I don't have kids so no worries...!

I could not eat it with a spoon!

I have pesto. the fruit seems a good idea and I have a ton of green apples.

I eat it with chunks of apple.

Grated apple, a drop of Apple juice or sugar to sweeten slightly plus a splash of calvados Wink. Whisk and pop in the fridge.

the only spirits I have are:-

Southern Comfort

and Pimms (not a spirit)

would they do??

Pimms would do the job I should imagine Smile.

Or maybe not. Nothing to stop you washing it down with a large refreshing glass of Pimms and lemonade though. Or you could perhaps make a Pimms sorbet to eat on the side. So many possibilities! Grin
