Canadian.Recipes's picture
I just love the tangu flavor that lemon adds to my desserts and this Celestial Lemon Crème is one among the best lemon flavored pudding I have ever tried. Apart from lemon, the pudding also takes in pineapple and strawberry, making the Celestial Lemon Crème brim so full with fruit goodness! Give it a try; you would have never imagined a dessert could have been this filling and satisfying!
