The Eton Mess is an old-school classic British dessert, which had lost its popularity and is now seeing a resurgence in pastry chefs who are looking back through history to learn from the old craftspeople of the time.

Cobblers are such a great dessert, and depending on where you are from in the U.S. and whose grandmother’s special recipe you ate most as a kid, you may have very different ideas about what exactly a ‘cobbler’ is from someone else.

Whenever there is a hot summer day and I feel the smell of fresh raspberries, I think about this dessert. It is so easy to prepare and it is impossible not to love it. The chocolate mousse is soft and smooth and it is enriched by the extraordinary delicate flavor of the raspberries.

The creamy texture makes it perfect for many desserts.

You should know that there are plenty of ice cream recipes and the following is one of the most simple of all. You will only need four ingredients (bananas, raspberries, coconut oil and honey) and a food processor.
