Angel Delight Moments in Time

I do love a bit of 80s & 90s nostalgia, reminiscing about the good old days before technology took over (the irony of me blogging about this isn't lost on me) and all the things that made my childhood wonderful & memorable - My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, a Coca-Cola bottle lid shaped portable CD player (doesn't seem quite so portable now, looking at my iPhone), going to birthday parties in the Wimpy or McDonalds and watching TV classics like Dungeons & Dragons, and Knightmare. Those really were 'the days'.
When I was growing up, we always sat around the table together as a family for meals, and we always had a roast dinner on Sundays with a dessert - often the fluffy wonder that is Angel Delight because it was quick and easy to make, and we could help whisk it! I'm a traditional soul and I have tried hard to raise my children with the same values that I grew up with as far as my own family goes, & my husband is the same. We have dinner together at the table as a family almost every single night, we always have a roast dinner on a Sunday (the Mister insists on it) - and the kids love Angel Delight.

BritMums challenged us to share our memories and stories of Angel Delight, our very own #AngelDelightMoments, & to taste test the new Bubblegum flavour that was launched in Tesco stores last September. My children are fans of the more traditional flavours - strawberry, chocolate, banana - but they're kids & they're not going to turn down the offer of dessert whatever flavour it is, let's be honest. The Bubblegum flavour is suitable for vegetarians and made with only natural colourings, and as with all the other flavours of the dessert it is versatile enough to be enjoyed in many ways.

The new Bubblegum flavour features a handy milkshake recipe on the back of the sachet which is just as easy to make as the normal dessert. Simply whizz up the sachet contents along with 300ml of cold milk and 3 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a blender, pour into a glass and serve. Bear in mind that this recipe will work with any flavour of Angel Delight, too, so let the kids choose their favourites and you could even serve it with some fresh fruit.

We made a special dessert as we often do for the weekend, using Bubblegum Angel Delight, strawberry jelly, meringue, and sprinkles. Just make up your jelly as per the packet instructions and place in the fridge to set. When the jelly is ready, crush your meringue and sprinkle a layer on top of your jelly.

Make your Angel Delight as per the packet instructions (just add milk, and whisk!), and pour it over the top of your meringue layer, then place in the fridge to thicken and chill for about five minutes. Then simply decorate it as you please! We added some more crushed meringue, some sprinkles, and pretty soft shimmer pearls. Now all that is left to do is eat, and enjoy!
