Berry delicious...

This is a lovely, easy, fruity, cool dessert to have in the freezer for these stinking hot days we are experiencing, late in our 'Spring'!


1 x 4 litre tub of your favourite vanilla icecream
1 packet frozen mixed berries (or fresh if you prefer)
1 tblspn castor sugar
1 packet meringues
whipped cream (fresh is better)
First, put berries in a saucepan and add sugar (or not) and gently thaw and dissolve sugar. Cool.
Spoon out icecream into a large bowl, add cooled berry mix, smashed meringues and mix gently so it is roughly combined. Then fold through about a cup of whipped cream (wicked, I know!). Line 2 loaf tins with foil then cling film and fill both tins with icecream mixture. Freeze until very firm.
To serve, remove the icecream from the tin, slice off desired piece of Berry Meringue Mess and enjoy!
Stay cool,


  1. Oh that looks good. I might give that a try. I always am amazed to read that you are just starting your spring and we are getting cold her.

  2. Sounds yummy and cool Joolz, will give a try, maybe this weekend as I have just bought some frozen berries.

    The heat is still with us, we checked the thermometre this afternoon and it said 44 and that was under the verandah! The sun really bit at the skin today, we knew it was HOTTTTT! The swimming pool is getting a workout I tell ya!

    Have a lovely weekend,


  3. Oh my! Have I told you lately, that I love you? And berries too of course! *wink*
    Unfortunately, my butt is gonna hate you, because I have every single ingredient on hand and I am so having this tonight!

  4. Hi Joolz,looks delish!The heat is slowly coming up my way...yuck!Summer is not looking good,I hope we get a wet season this year,its so dry.
    Thanks for the school cookie recipe,I made them today and they are yummy :0)I have the recipe tucked away in my"Granny's Favourite Recipes" folder :0)

  5. I had to come back to say that your posting about berries, inspired us to do a berry pie--I wrote about it this morning. One of my favorites, especially with vanilla ice cream! But your frozen berry treat is a definite for my future! C
