Eton Mess or Strawberry and Blueberry Merengue
If you're feeling like giving a little break from the diet, then today is the day! We are going to make a ridiculously easy recipe that is one of the most delicious thing you can make ( and of course, super fast! <3).
The good thing about this recipe is that if someday you get some visit coming in last minute call you can make it as your desert. It will look like you were prepared, and will bring the expectations up about your hosting skills!
Oh, by the way, did I mention that you don't need to bake anything for this? It literally takes 15min to make this delicious desert.
16 fl oz (300g) heavy cream
4 to 5 big home made merengue
One package of blueberries
One package of strawberries
3 table spoon of sugar
1 tea spoon of vanilla essence
a little of balsamic vinegar (trust me on this! I didn't put this ingredient on mistake lol)
In a casserole looking container, put 3/4 of your strawberries and blueberries (save 1/4 of it for us to use later) and the sugar. With a fork press the fruits with the sugar till you get a juice from the it, then you add a little bit of balsamic vinegar and mix everything well.
In a separated bowl add the heavy cream and the vanilla essence. Whisk it until combine. Then add the merengue breaking it into small pieces (but save some merengue for later). Then add the lemon's juice and it's zest. Mix everything.
Then add half of this heavy cream mixture into the strawberry and blueberries container, now break the rest of the merengue over it.Then over the merengue layer add the rest of the heavy cream misture and then add the strawberries and blueberries that you reserved earlier. And that's it!!
