Easy condensed milk pudding!

This has got to be one of the easiest deserts to make,especially when you have unexpected guests as all of the ingredients are usually in your cupboard!It's so simple to make and really quick.Chill for a couple of hours and you're done!

you will need:
1 UHT carton of cream cream (or fresh whipping cream)
1 large tin of condensed milk
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
4tbsp of crushed Marie biscuits (or digestives)

With a pestle and mortar crush your biscuits into a fine but still crunchy powder.
In a large bowl beat a carton of UHT cream into stiff peaks. Add the zest of lemon and mix well. In another bowl pour in the condensed milk and add the lemon juice. Add a little bit of the cream and mix well. Now fold in the beaten cream so it's light and fluffy.
Pour into individual bowls or pretty cocktail glasses and sprinkle over the crushed biscuits. Chill for at least 2 hours.

Top tip...this recipe is a nice refreshing pallet cleanser. You can add more Lemon juice to taste. I always add at least the juice of 2 lemons because I do like it quite zingy. Also the lemon juice thickens up the mixture so no need to use horrible stuff like gelatine!

Variations: Coconut- add dessicated coconut to the mixture and top with flaked roasted almonds.
Mocha- remove the lemon and add a small measure of coffee liqueur,dash of vanilla essence,1 tsp of chocolate flavouring (the kind you use to add to coffee) or cocoa powder and top with chocolate shavings or chocolate covered coffee beans.
