June's Degustabox and Pear Dessert Recipe
This month's Degustabox really was a mixed bag. Individually, all the products were nice, but not all things that I would normally buy.
Be Fast Breakfast: These were banana milkshakes intended for breakfast on the go. Nice but I like to have my cereal.
Shaken Udder Milkshake: We had these in a previous box. They are nice and a bit different for the kids on a picnic.
VeeTee Rice: We have bought these before and I will continue to buy them. Sometimes it is really handy to have rice in 2 minutes!
Lambrini Strawberry: I would never have thought of buying this, but it tasted nice. A bit on the sweet side for my liking though.
Elizabeth Shaw: These ameretto sticks tasted like chocolate and marzipan, so I was happy.
Estrella: Neither my husband or I really drink larger, but it was nice enough.
Bear Alpha Bites: The boys seemed to like these
Urban Fruit Pinaepple: Liked the idea of this but really didn't like the taste. Far too sweet.
Madagascan Vanilla Grinder: Great addition to my baking collection!
If you would like to try a Degustabox for yourself they have provided my readers with a discount code: BP8EP meaning you will be a £3 saving off of your first box. That means you will get a surprise box delivered for just £9.99
I decided to get middle man helping me make the pear dessert, as it is nice and easy to make. You will need:
1 packet of chocolate digestives
150ml double cream
200g of soft cheese
Madagascan Vanilla Grinder
150g icing sugar
2 tins of pears.
Start by making the base. Smash the digestives into small pieces and combine with 100g of melted butter.
Press into the bottom of a springform cake pan and put into the fridge to cool.
Make the topping by whipping the cream, then adding the cheese, icing sugar and vanilla to taste.
Cut the pears and layer on the digestive base.
Top with the cheese mixture. Enjoy!
I was given a Degustabox for the purpose of this review but the opinions here are my own.
