Lime mousse
1 Cup Heavy whipping Cream, very cold

1⁄4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract


For the Raspberry swirl

Refrigerate mixing bowl and beaters to chill thoroughly for whipped cream.
For the Cake

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper (for easy clean-up).

Cut (pre-made) angel food cake into 1 inch cubes.

Place in a single layer onto sheet pan and drizzle with a little Coronado Taste of Oils Persian Lime Oil, toss to coat.

Bake until GBD and fragrant, about 20 minutes.

Whipped cream

Remove 1⁄4 of the mixture and refrigerate.

Beat in the remaining ingredients and mix until incorporated.

For the Raspberry swirl, fold the cooled balsamic reduction into the cream (without the lime) and gently swirl with a spatula. (You want to see swirls of the balsamic in the cream).
To assemble

Place the cubes of cake into the bottom of your dish, add a spoon of cream and fresh raspberries.

Top with a dollop of the raspberry-cream swirl and a mint leaf, if desired.
