Italian Zabaglione Recipe


Zabaglione is a traditional, light Italian dessert that’s great for summer entertaining. It uses 3 main ingredients (eggs, sugar, sherry, but shh we added a little vanilla to ours too) and is fairly simple to make. This delicious Zabaglione recipe has a whipped cream/custard texture and is topped with strawberries and blueberries. It makes a pretty delicious and somewhat healthier after-dinner treat! The colors make it a perfect dessert for the 4th of July and you can make the custard earlier in the day, then chop the strawberries to store in the fridge for a ready-made dessert! Just make sure to assemble right before serving. Enjoy!
