Using frozen fruit…

We can’t get enough of frozen fruit when creating desserts, they can be taken out of the freezer at a moment’s noticed and used straight from frozen or can be quickly defrosted and enjoyed with ice cream. Did you know that frozen berries are frozen within hours of being picked so stay in peak condition and are available all year round? Bonus!

Berries are a true sign of summer and most supermarkets now stock a huge range from strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and mixed berries so you can be ready for when the sun comes out. They are delicious on their own, tasty with yogurt and honey for a simple treat and can also be added to lots of desserts.frozen desserts

These summer berry filo parcels couldn’t be simpler and make for a delicious end to any meal. Crispy and light on the outside and sweet and juicy on the inside, you’ll have to be quick or they’ll all be gone! They are also a nice idea to prepare in advance and eat as a sweet snack throughout the day.

We love this recipe from BBC Good Food. Their grilled summer berry pudding is a fruity take on the frozen dessertstraditional bread and butter pudding, which uses a mixture of frozen berries. Plus it’s a low-fat version to the traditional dish – result.

One of the best ways of showcasing sweet and juicy fruit is with a classic Eton Mess. Our method is easy:

600ml double cream
300g ready prepared meringue nests
180g frozen berries/fruit of your choice – make sure to defrost
a few sprigs of mint to garnish
(serves 4)

  1. Whip the double cream until soft peaks form
  2. Break up the meringue into chunks and mix in a large bowl with the whipped double cream and 2/3 (120g) of the frozen berries.
  3. Simply spoon the cream mixture into a glass and top with the remaining berries.
  4. Add a couple of sprigs of mint to garnish and serve.
