Iced Strawberry Terrine.

A wonderfully refreshing dessert that is ideal served after the braai!


The Recipe!
400g ripe strawberries (hulled)
400ml good quality vanilla ice cream
meringue nests (crumbled)




Method!
Line a 900g loaf tin with cling film. Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries lightly until they resemble a rough puree. Add the ice cream and continue mashing until there are swirls of pink, white and red!
Gently stir in the crumbed meringue nests. Spoon into the lined loaf tin pressing into the corners and fold the cling film over the top.








Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove from the freezer. Shake the tin and run a knife around the edges to dislodge from the tin. Remove the cling film.
Serve sliced with fresh strawberries and mint leaves.





Serves 8 to 10 people.

  2. My mom used to make something similar but it didn't have the meringue nests. I wonder if you could even find those here?

  3. Hello Shel,
    ... Mmm this looks scrumptious! I make something similar with ricotta cheese and strawberry and sugar sauce.
    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. It was much appreciated!

  4. This looks delicious! I had to Google a recipe for Meringue Nests, but I think that now I am set to give this recipe a try. I'll make it to serve to my Garden Friends Bible Study. I appreciate your generous remarks for my post, and thank you so much for sharing this with us! Cherry Kay

  7. @ Cherry Kay and Mary Ellen:>> Meringue nests are just like mini pavlova bases..I hope this helps. You could even make your own mini meringues and crush them.
    Have a happy day.
