I have been making this recipe for a few years. my husband's mum has been making it for longer! I love this recipe because it's both delicious and very easy to make. Clean up is also very easy! AND it's no bake! it's perfect for summer because of its refreshing lemon flavour and because it doesn't require use of an oven. All that and it would be perfect to make with kids. - 16 Sep 2012
