Couldn’t be easier to make and what a delicious way to use up fresh strawberries.
4 cups strawberries
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
2 teaspoons pomegranate juice
2 cups whipping cream
1 packet individual meringue nests
Hull and chop the strawberries and put into a bowl and add the sugar and pomegranate juice and leave to macerate while you whip the cream.
Whip the cream in a large bowl until thick but still soft. Roughly crumble in 4 of the meringues nests - you will need chunks for texture as well as a little fine dust.
Take out about half a cupful of the chopped strawberries, and fold the meringue cream and rest of the fruit mixture together.
Arrange on 4 serving plates or glasses or in a mound, and top each with some.
It’s a light tasting summery dessert you should try at least one time. Bet you will want it again sometime. We love it.
Hope you all are well and I have enjoyed reconnecting with those of you (you know who you are) who have been absent from the blogging world!
I have some book reviews coming up soon as well as snaps of some outings we enjoyed during vacation.
