Welcome to my Slimming World Eton Mess Recipe. Enjoy a delicious Slimming World take on Eton Mess. Loaded with extra fresh strawberries, freshly made meringues and a creamy cheesecake style filling this is a Slimming World members best friend!
You’re probably wondering what took me so long. I mean come on, Eton Mess is like the dream dessert for a Brit and I am British born. It is just one of those simple desserts that anybody can make and is perfect for showing off your cooking skills to friends and families, or just a perfect use of leftover fresh strawberries.
Eton Mess has always been a staple in my life and I have always had many different versions. One of my all time favourites (which Dominic and Kyle still love) is when you have a bottom layer of strawberry jelly, then whipped cream and then a layer of Angel Delight, loads of strawberries and then grated milk chocolate.
Or another favourite is when you layer a sundae glass with fresh strawberries, meringue crushed up and loads of strawberry flavoured whipped cream.
Though this version is a little different and is totally Slimming World friendly. It involves freshly made meringue made in the Airfryer. Then we have several layers of fresh strawberries along with strawberry yoghurt style mix.
It screams out “EAT ME NOW” and I can guarantee that you will haver the kids arguing over who gets to lick out the bowl when you have finished making it.
Edit – Though in our house when we made this, we found it very funny when our 2.5 year old stole the bowl of our 15 year old and refused to bring it back. The bowl actually looked bigger than her!
Then layer it into glass or plastic sundae containers and serve it to someone special.
Or for summer what we do is take them with us to the beach as they are a perfect beach snack for having with your picnic.
You can also vary it too depending on what fresh fruit you have in. Though I prefer it with strawberries for the ultimate treat. After all strawberries are so fresh and amazing at this time of the year.
What Is Eton Mess?
A traditional Eton Mess is a quick dessert originally aimed at students as a way to impress their date or to impress their parents when they were on a visit. The idea is that it is cheap but cheerful and very easy to make.
It involves broken up meringue, whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
Popular versions of Eton Mess include ones using raspberries, pineapple or bananas instead of strawberries. For dinner parties port is often used to give it a kick.
There are also many versions using traditional cheesecake mixture instead like in my recipe.
Slimming World Eton Mess
- Start by making the bottom layer. Using a blender add together all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Then using a hand whisk give it a good whisking so that it is thick and creamy. This will become your healthy alternative to strawberry whipped cream.
- Secondly make your homemade meringues. Mix the egg white with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add your sugar and keep mixing until you end up with stiff peaks. Place them in the Airfryer on the baking pan and cook for 1 hour on 125c/257f
- Slice up the strawberries and decorate the sundae glass. Add strawberry slices to the bottom and round the sides. Then cover them so that the glass is about ½ full with your strawberry whipped cream. Though reserve 4tbsp to one side for your top layer for later. Fridge for an hour.
- Then do the final layer, Mix together pureed strawberries into the strawberry whipped cream and using a piping bag layer it over the top of your Eton Mess
