    Something else. just 2 add a bit of colour add a tiny drop of green food colouring and add a sprig of mint on the top for presentation  -  16 May 2009


    Made this for dessert after a 'Mexican themed' dinner party. Everyone loved it, very simple recipe with a real zing! Next time will add a little colour, I added some lime zest on top to give it some colour this time.  -  12 Jul 2009


    My daughter loved it and sent some to my Mum who complained there wasnt enough. I added the zest of my limes to the mix gave it a splash of colour  -  27 May 2014
