Tropical Eton Mess

BY CECILIA NAYLOR

A slight twist to a traditional English dessert replacing the strawberries with tropical fruit:

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 300ml double cream
  • 200ml Greek-style yoghurt
  • 4 shop-bought meringue nests
  • 1 ripe mango, skin and stone removed, flesh cut into 1cm pieces
  • 3 passion fruits halved
  • 4 fresh mint sprigs, to decorate (optional)

Method:

  • Gently whip the cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form.
  • Fold the yoghurt through the cream, being careful not to over-mix.
  • Break the meringues into the bowl and gently stir to combine. It should be quite a stiff mixture.
  • Spoon a layer of the meringue mixture into the base of four serving glasses. Sprinkle over a handful of mango pieces and drizzle with passion fruit seeds. Repeat until all the meringue mixture and fruit is used up.
  • Decorate with mint sprigs, if using and eat immediately.
