Eton Mess

Eton Mess

There are all different takes on this dessert and different ways to tweak it; this is mine but feel free to play around with it! Some desserts should take little effort to make but still taste heavenly, this is one of them.
Tip: for the healthier option, use low-fat natural yogurt instead of double cream.

Serves 4:
225g fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
Half a lemon
284ml of double cream or 300ml of Natural low fat yogurt
6 mini meringue nests

Wash the strawberries and pick out the stalk. Chop half of them and place them in a small saucepan on a medium heat, sprinkle them with 1 spoonful sugar and a squeeze of lemon. Stew them down for a few mins the pour them out in a bowl to cool. Slice the other strawberries into slices or quarters.
Whip up the double cream in a mixing bowl with the second spoonful of the caster sugar. Lightly crush the meringue nests.
Mix the mashed strawberries and crushed meringues into the cream and divide out into dessert glasses, top with the cut strawberries and serve up.
