My Fave Dessert – ETON MESS

I've been telling my friends to make this easy dessert for years. Its a show stopper, try it out next time. It's great for kids, dinner parties or that special one-on-one occasion. To save time I always buy my meringues instead of making them even though they are simple to make

1 punnet strawberries and or raspberries
4-8 meringue nests
2 cups double cream
1 Tbsp icing sugar for dusting
Berry coulis or compote
Vanilla ice cream
Mint sprig for decoration

Halve your strawberries
Crush up meringues in large pieces, set aside
Beat cream til soft peaks form & slowly stir in some blended strawberries, berry coulis or berry compote, then last minute stir in halved strawberries, crunchy meringue (make sure its not swimming in cream its only for coating). Spoon a scoop of ice cream into a cocktail glass & add your mixture followed by more strawberries & berry coulis then dust with icing sugar, finish with mint sprig. Done!
