Eton mess is such a crowd-pleasing dessert: a luxurious sticky mess of broken meringue, whipped cream and, in this case, juicy, honeyed mango.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 ripe mangoes
1 lime, juiced and zest grated
2 tablespoons runny honey
1 cardamom pod, seeds removed and crushed
250ml double cream
4 teaspoons icing sugar
4 see method for ingredients
few bright-green slivered pistachios, to garnish
few small mint leaves, to garnish

Method

  1. Peel the mangoes, cut the flesh away from the stones and chop. Place three-quarters of the mango flesh in a bowl and add half the lime juice and all of the zest. In a food processor, blitz the remaining mango and lime juice with the honey, crushed cardamom seeds and 1 tablespoon of water to a smooth purée.
  2. Whip the cream and icing sugar in a bowl to form soft peaks. Break the meringues into chunky pieces and fold through the cream along with the mango purée. Spoon between four bowls, add the chopped mango and scatter with the pistachios and mint leaves.
