Perfect summer dessert made in 10 minutes!


  • 400g (14 oz) strawberries
  • 6 tablespoons powdered sugar (or more to taste)
  • 240ml (1 cup) whipping or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 100g (3.5 oz) meringues


  1. Save 5 strawberries for decoration, hull the rest. Finely chop the strawberries and add 4 tablespoons sugar. Toss and mash berries with a fork. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl or bowl of your mixer combine cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and vanilla paste. Whisk on medium speed until stiff peaks form.
  3. Meanwhile crush the meringues into small pieces, it’s good if some are bigger and other are tiny, even turned into meringue dust.
  4. Transfer cream to a large mixing bowl and fold in 2/3 of the strawberries. Gently stir in 1/2 of crushed meringues.
  5. Spoon some of the mixture into serving bowls (or jars), top with leftover strawberry mixture and meringues, finish with more whipped cream mixture.
  6. Lastly top with reserved strawberries, either whole or thinly sliced, and more meringue pieces. Serve immediately.
