If you can’t find mint leaves, you can decorate them with chocolate shavings, or just some raspberries and a little whipped cream. The kids can make these ahead of time and keep them in the freezer, when meal time arrives you can serve the dessert they made and they will feel so proud! You can easily double the recipe to make more, just make sure you have enough ramekins for individual servings.
If you don’t have ramekins at home, another option is to serve it in one large bowl, but in this case do not freeze it, just keep it chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Regarding the whipped cream, we used liquid cream used for whipping, don’t use the kind that comes in a can! (it won’t work)
In this recipe, the kids are asked to use a hand mixer. Please supervise at all times and explain that they should never ever put their fingers near the spinning blades.
Remember you can download the printable version so the recipe is easier for kids to follow! Find it at the bottom.
