One day I had unexpected guests and I had to whip up a quick dessert. All I had was some fresh fruits.

Ta-da came the idea for this recipe, I added it to the chilled bowl of cut  fruits with some vanilla … Mmmm tasted divine! my guests loved it. Ever since this is my favorite dessert to have any time of the day.
