Phil's Tips

This recipe works well with a mixture of berries ... try blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. Or for a tropical version try passion fruit, mango and papaya.
Combine condensed milk, vanilla and cream together to make a vanilla cream which is perfect to serve with all kinds of desserts and fresh fruits.
