Eton Mess

Sweet Treats

This is my go-to EASY dinner party dessert. It takes minutes to make, it looks amazing and it's simply delicious!

Serves 4


  • 500 grams strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 500 ml whipping cream (A really good quality Greek or natural yogurt tastes just as good - I promise!)
  • 4 small meringue nests (from a packet)


  • Hull and chop the strawberries and put into a bowl. Add the sugar 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 meringues nests - leave some chunks for texture

  • Take out a ladleful, or about 100g / ½ cup, of the chopped strawberries, and fold the meringued cream and rest of the fruit mixture together.

  • Arrange in four glasses ( small white wine glasses are an ideal portion size), or in a mound, and top each one with some of the remaining strawberries.

Serving Suggestion

Why not try a variety of summer fruits and berries, or even top with a sprig of mint.
