This classic British dessert is a variation of the Australian/New Zealand dish, Pavlova. It is very kid-friendly as it’s easy to make and a definite crowd-pleaser.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups store-bought meringues, broken into small pieces
2 cups mixed berries – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Whip the cream until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla. With a wooden spoon, gently blend in the meringues and berries.
