My favourite dessert in the world – the mango meringue mess

I love my desserts. I need dessert after every dinner. To me, a dinner without dessert is not a complete meal. I’m not particular about it with breakfast or lunch, but every dinner should end with something sweet, be it a fizzy drink, a fruit or pudding.

If I didn’t have dessert after dinner, I’d often end up having a massive, unhealthy supper. So I eat desserts to keep my body in reasonable condition. It is true!

Of all desserts, my favourite is the mango meringue mess. It’s essentially a mango version of Eton Mess, which is made with assortment of berries. I love it so much I could eat it every evening, if it weren’t for occasional concerns about the 35% fat content in whipped cream. And when that happens, I substitute cream with plain yogurt…and my life is beautiful again :D

For a 2 people serving, you need:

  • 2 mangoes, cubed and divided into 2 bowls
  • 100 ml of whipping cream, whipped till fluffy
  • About 6 fistfuls of crumbled meringues

Lets begin the journey to heaven…

# – Mangoes, meringues & cream – only 3 ingredients for the best dessert of your life!

# – Pour 100 ml of whipping cream and beat till double stiff and double in size.

# – Divide the cream equally into each bowl of cubed mangos. Check out my tutorial for easy and quick cubing of mangoes here.

# – Then, divide the crumbled meringues equally into each bowl. Learn how to bake meringues with no stress here.

# – Lastly, you mix them all up so that every spoon has a perfect balance of mangoes, cream and meringues.

Now, savour the bowl of heaven and after that, you bake more meringues, buy more mangoes and stock up on whipping cream! That’s how we roll it.

P/S: don’t forget to hide the scale!!!
