Carnation Delight

A very simple and economical dessert that Mum used to make quite a lot is called 'Carnation Delight'. It is a lovely melt in your mouth light dessert that you can accompany with any fruit of your choice.

All you need is:
1 tin of chilled Carnation Milk
3/4 cup of sugar
4 teaspoons of gelatine dissolved in ¼ cup of hot water

Simply beat the milk until it bulks up, add the sugar and then the gelatine. Keep beating until all has mixed well.
Pour into a slice container and set in the fridge.

These aren't very exciting photos, but believe me it tastes really good!

It's Australia Day here in down under. A day where us 'Aussies' celebrate all things Australian!
The most common being throwing a chop or sausage on the BBQ!
Whatever you're doing, I hope you enjoy your weekend. I found the below phot on on facebook last night...quite an interesting pic!

 Happy Australia Day!

I've made a similar dessert but with a chocolate flavour, from memory it was just cocoa mixed with a bit of hot water, now I'll have to go and check :)
