Strawberry Eaton Mess

We recently had friends unexpectedly stay for dinner, so I quickly ran to the grocery store to pick up something for dinner and dessert.  I didn’t want to go to too much fuss, I wanted something that was quick and easy.  We had taco’s for dinner and Strawberry Eaton Mess for dessert, only 3 ingredients and takes minutes to put together. It doesn’t look so great dished up in a bowl, but it tastes ooh so good and everybody was happy!

I like to make this, too, but with plain yogurt rather than the cream (cream disagrees with me). Sometimes I add a tiny bit of icing sugar, if the yogurt is particularly bitter, but otherwise just as is!

that’s a healthier alternative Lise clever idea.

I do something similar… Using the nests put a small dollop of cream then put mixed berries ( I use frozen that have been defrosted ) on top – serve – looks fantastic
The only prep is getting berries out of freezer, if you forget you can pop into microwave for a few seconds.
