Strawberry Meringue Ice-Cream

I first made this for DS a few years ago after seeing it on I Can Cook (you see...*some* good can come of watching so much CBeebies!) and it was so delicious it became a staple in our house.  I serve it as dessert when we have guests, it is by no means just a kid's dish!  It is beautifully creamy and unmistakably homemade ;)

125ml double cream
2 heaped dessert spoons of natural yoghurt
2 level dessert spoons icing sugar
4 large strawberries
1 meringue next

Whisk the double cream until fluffy.  Add the yoghurt and icing sugar and whisk together until well combined, & set aside.

Mash the strawberries with a fork and remove any of the green stalks.  Add them to cream mixture.

Holding the meringue nest over the bowl, crush & crumble it with your hands into the cream & strawberry mixture - leave some larger pieces, you don't want it finely crushed.

Stir gently and transfer to a lidded Tupperware and freeze overnight.

Take the ice-cream out of the freezer around 10-15 minutes before you want to serve it.  Spoon into glass dishes and top with fresh berries.
