200g of blackberries

6-8 tbsp of blackberry coulis

4-5 meringues (homemade or shop bought)

250ml of cream

 

Mixing bowl

4 individual serving glasses

 

15 mins
Serves 4

This is my take on the classic English recipe “Eton Mess” which originally uses strawberries. You can really use any fruit here and just adapt on the cream and meringue mixture. The recipe takes minutes to throw together and is a super last minute dessert.

 

In a bowl, whip the cream until it becomes thick. Crumble the meringues into the cream and stir to combine.
Gently fold half the blackberry coulis into the cream and meringue mix until you get a nice marbled effect.
Place a few blackberries in each glass and layer with the cream and meringue mixture. Repeat the process.
Serve with an extra drizzle of coulis and a few more blackberries on top of each. Delicious!
