What you’ll need to make around three to five small servings:
- 12 packet of assorted colours of Meringues (or feel free to make your own)
- 500ml of whipping cream
- 1-2tsp of Thea Matcha (add to taste)
- Assorted seasonal fruit, nuts, coconut shredding, cocoa nibs chia seeds and to decorate
- Whisk or beater + bowl to whisk cream
- Small servings bowls
- Knife & Chopping board
Step 1: Lay the foundation. Flatten the tops of your meringues into the serving bowls. Crush the tops and adding it back - we chose to keep the same colours together and decorate around this but feel free to mix it up!
Step 2: Whip up the cream into two separate bowls - we kept normal cream and created Matcha cream by adding 2 tsp since we like a stronger Matcha taste - and to combat the sweetness of the meringues
Step 3: Cut up your fruit into assorted shapes. We used strawberries, kiwifruit, pomegranate, dragon fruit and bananas.
Step 4: Flavour combos included:
Green Meringues: Dragon fruit, strawberries, pumpkin seeds, mix of original and Matcha cream with an extra sprinkle of Matcha.
White Meringues: Kiwifruit, banana, cocoa nibs, chia seeds on a bed of Matcha cream.
Pink Meringues: Strawberries and coconut shredding on Matcha cream. (Our favourite!)
Make sure you don't over whip your cream! It gets clumpy and separates.
A more bitter Matcha cream complements the meringues so much better - it's a bit strong but once you taste it together you will love it!
