This is the best recipe for when guests come over unexpectedly, quick, easy and about as much effort as tying your shoe lace! Here’s how it goes:

What you need:
500g fresh/frozen mixed raspberries, blueberries and strawberries
1tbsp caster sugar
300ml double cream
200g pot Natural yogurt
4 ready-made meringue nests, roughly broken

What you do:
1) for the berry sauce: Put 125g of the fruit into a pan with the sugar and 3tbsp cold water. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, then simmer for 5 mins until the berries start to break down. Take off the heat and press the fruits through a sieve to make a sauce. Set aside to cool.
2) Whip the cream in a large bowl until it just starts to hold its shape. Stir in the yogurt.
3) Spoon some of the berry sauce in the bottom of each serving glass, followed by the cream. Top with meringue, then a handful of the fresh fruit and a spoonful of cream, top with more fresh fruit and sauce and serve immediately.

Simply delicious! Plus the more messy the more tasty, a fun way to get the kids involved! Have a go and don’t be afraid to get crazy with the fruits. As canapés try serving this layered in double shot glasses! However wild you go…keep it delicious!
