  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 6 meringue nests, broken into small pieces
  • 450g tub of Greek yoghurt with honey


How to make Eton mess the easy way

1. Blend half the strawberries with the icing sugar and set aside.

2. Mix the remaining strawberries in a bowl with the meringue pieces. Add the yoghurt then gently fold in most of the strawberry pulp, reserving approximately 3 tablespoons.

3. Pile into serving dishes or tall glasses, drizzle with the remaining pulp and serve immediately.
