When most of us think of dips, we tend to think of the savoury versions, ones served with crisp veggie sticks or crunchy chips. Here we have turned the traditional dip on its head and made it a sweet treat! This creamy dip is reminiscent of lemon merengue pie, tangy, rich, and creamy, and is easy to make, chill and, serve.

Having a Mother’s Day gathering? This is the perfect shareable sweet treat to serve for a crowd, just adorn with your favourite fresh fruit!
