Honey Semifreddo

Honey Semifreddo is an icecream with mousse like texture. Semifreddo is an Italian dessert. Here i made honey Semifreddo with a spicy citrus sauce.

Spicy citrus Sauce is the highlight of this dessert. It has both sweetness and hotness and a bit of tanginess that goes well with a chilled dessert.

This Sauce has orange and lime juice with some orange peel for tanginess and chilli powder or whole chilli can be added for hotness and finally honey is for sweetness. Apples and almonds are boiled and soaked in the sauce and left for a day.


I added up some honeycomb crumbs for the crunchiness. Sweetness, hotness and tanginess with the chilled semifreddo is yummy to enjoy both in cold winter and hot summer.
