Figs are abundant in my garden, though the big size right on top had been eaten half by birds. Disappointed that I could not get the big size in time. Well got to share it with the birds too, hahaha!!! Being generous to the birds too. Hope the birds will leaves me some big plum figs.
Dad gave me some papaya that he had already cut into bite size. I decided to add with my figs to make a mousse as I have not tried making it a mousse. As usual I love using different ingredients, this time I use almond milk instead of yoghurt, thickened cream, and garnish with fig and chocolate sprinkles.
I am glad that it turned out well, looks beautiful, chill and delicious. Got to be brave to explore and experiment it, if I don’t, I won’t know what the taste like. As long as it didn’t kill me of cause me to be sick, I will continued with many more fruits to go with my fig. Perhaps create a West meet East fusion and I will not let the birds eat them up, they have got to leave me some. Let’s make it and see what the taste like for you?
4 medium size figs, washed and dry, cut into bite size
4 papaya cubes
1 Tbs lime juice
