    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • Mint leaves
    • 250g mascarpone

    • 80g caster sugar
    • 225ml whipping cream
    • Few drops vanilla extract (optional)

    4. Put 1 tbsp of the mascarpone mixture in the bottom of each of 4 large wine glasses. Add a layer of the fruit mixture, followed by some more mascarpone mixture, then a second layer of fruit. Top this with a dusting of icing sugar, garnish with a sprig of mint and serve.
