Wimbledon Eton Mess
To celebrate Wimbledon, home-cooking ace Kirstie Allsopp serves up some sensational treats that are quick and simple to prepare
Try this classic English dessert — light sweet cream, crumbled crunchy meringues and strawberries, swirled together with raspberry coulis – tastes as good as it looks!
What you'll need
300g punnet strawberries
300ml carton whipping cream
Half a 397g can Carnation Condensed Milk
Juice of 1 lemon
4tbsp raspberry or strawberry coulis
Chop the strawberries. Roughly break the meringues into bite-size pieces.
Whip the cream, add the condensed milk and re-whip to soft peaks. Add the lemon juice, which should thicken the mixture.
Reserve half the strawberries, meringue pieces and coulis to layer into the glasses, swirl the remaining ingredients into the creamy mixture.
Layer the creamy mixture with the remaining fruit, meringue and sauce into 8 serving glasses and serve!
Tip Use up the remaining half a can of Carnation Condensed Milk in a quick smoothie lollie perfect for summer picnics! Simply blend with 275g (10oz) fresh or frozen fruit and 100ml (3fl oz) fruit juice — try berries with apple juice or mangoes with pineapple juice!
