Strawberry Yoghurt Meringue Nests

With A Blast: Strawberry Yoghurt Meringue Nests  #dessert  #strawberries

Light and refreshing!  I mentioned in a previous post that we are very fortunate in SA to have strawberries available most of the year.

We had a rich dinner and I decided to pair it with a lighter {and fluffier} dessert than we would normally have during the colder months - and yes, the cold has finally hit our country, although it is not too bad, it's really only early in the morning and evening which it is real cold.

The filling needs to be made at least 4 - 5 hours ahead of serving time, but do not scoop into the meringue nests until right before you'd like to serve.

You can use the tiny nests or the palm sized {as I did here} or even one large meringue nest.  I prefer individual portions and had enough filling for 12 nests.


{servings : depending on nest size used, but around 12 servings}

1/2 packet Strawberry Jello  {jelly}
1/2 cup Boiling Water
1/2 can (of a 397g can} Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup Strawberry Yoghurt
1 cup Fresh Cream   {whipping cream/double cream}
12 Palm sized Meringue Nests   {or other sizes}
Fresh Strawberries, sliced, to decorate

1.) Dissolve the Strawberry Jello in the Boiling Water and let cool.
2.) Meanwhile combine the Condensed Milk and the Yoghurt - beat the Fresh Cream until stiff peaks form - fold into the Yoghurt/Condensed Milk mixture - add the cooled Jello and mix well to combine -chill in the refrigerator 4 - 5 hours or overnight.

When ready to serve - scoop the mixture into the Meringue Nest/Nests - decorate with sliced Strawberries. {You can also crumble a piece of Meringue and sprinkle over the filling}

Hope you enjoy this easy recipe !
