Red, White, and Blue Mess

Red, White, and Blue Mess 

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract (or zest)
  • 2 cups meringues (crushed)**
  • 1 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries

**No need to make your own meringues, just buy them from Trader Joe’s (or whatever store you have near you!)

Step 1: 

In a medium bowl, begin to whip your heavy cream. As it starts to thicken add, the sugar and both extracts. If you’re using a stabilizer, add that before you add the sugars and extract.

* If you’re not going to serve right away, place the cream in the fridge until you’re ready to use.

Step 2: 

Right before you’re ready to serve, mix in the berries and crushed meringues. Stir until combined and enjoy.
