When I am visiting the Netherlands with my husband, one thing we love to visit his family. My Mother-in-Law Marlies makes the most beautiful and best-tasting dishes. She is a true top chef. This one was my favorite dessert ever, I HAD to have the recipe for this tropical vegan fruit dessert! So I can also share it with you guys :)
