It's not Eton but it is a Mess...

If you've got kids anything like mine then as soon as they've eaten all their dinner they ask 'what's for pudding'. Sometimes they ask before they've finished eating their dinner to find out whether the dinner is worth finishing. Often it's fruit or a yoghurt but to be honest I get sick of all the moaning so occasionally I like to give them a treat, and tonight was one of those nights.

I checked in the cupboards and freezer to see what I could rustle up and came up with this :


Frozen raspberries
Handful of mini marshmallows
4  Meringue nests, broken up
3 choc ices, chopped
Natural Greek yoghurt
Maple Syrup

Serves 4


Thaw the raspberries out slightly in the microwave and mix with the marshmallows, meringue and choc ices.

Bind it all together with a drizzle of maple syrup and a heaped tablespoon of Greek yoghurt (double cream or creme fraiche would be just as good).

Spoon into dishes and enjoy.

Whilst I was making it Hanna said 'oh wow, it's like a salad........but with puddingy things'

    what are you waiting for......

  3. Eton Mess is one of my most favourite things. I don't tend to mix it all together though and use clotted cream and a little Elmlea as well. Scrummy. (Also nice with a dollop of ice-cream on the side!)

  4. This is definitely one of my favourite puddings although I have only ever had it made my others. I will give it a go now I ave a recipe though. I think Poppy would have great fun helping me so thank you :-) xx

  5. That looks so good, I nearly could have made it but just a couple of ingredients short, shame!
