Blanc Manger with orange blossom honey

Although blanc-manger is beloved as the can't-fail dessert of French newlyweds, the keys to this dessert's appeal are its utterly smooth texture and its pure white color. Not surprising that such a soothing-seeming creation would have been served to the infirm and indisposed back in the Middle Ages as a balm. But in its current incarnations, blanc-manger is far from bland. Made with almond milk sweetened with sugar, folded with softly whipped cream, its meltingly ethereal - like biting into one of those big fluffy cumulus clouds up in the blue summer sky. lol
