Light fruit dessert

This recipe is for a light and low-calorie dessert. It is also extravagant, but not too expensive or hard to prepare. You can make it for special guests if you want to amaze them.

The original recipe is from Fiesta TV, but I changed it according to my family`s taste. I wanted to make it more practical. The result was great and incredibly delicious.

If your kids don`t prefer to eat fruits, you could serve them this special and even healthy dessert, because it contains citrus juice, rich in Vitamin C.
