Few desserts say Summer like Eton mess. Not only does it taste VERY good but it's super quick and easy to make.
450g strawberries, quartered.
1 tbsp caster sugar.
4 ready-made meringue nests, broken up (you can make your own but this is the super quick way).
400ml double cream, softly whipped.
Quick utensil check.
Knives to chop – whatever are your go to ones.
You're ready to whip, crush and mix.
Whip the double cream with the sugar until it is soft and thick.
Break the meringue nests into chunks and stir into the cream.
Purée half the strawberries in a blender and then add and mix into the cream and meringue mixture.
Divide the mixture into four glasses.
Pop the remaining strawberries on top as a garnish and a sprig of mint.
