  • 160ml double cream, lightly whipped

  • 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 lemon

  • STEP 1
    Place the digestive biscuits in a large plastic bag. Hold one end of the bag and using a rolling pin, crush until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.

  • STEP 5
    Then slowly add the cream and elderflower cordial until it is a smooth thick paste.
