Hi my name is Kirsty and I am a UK food and family blogger.
My blog is Hijacked By Twins. I am a very busy stay at home mum of three children, a 9 year old son and 2 year old boy/girl twins.
I am sharing a post with you on Loving Lunches as part of International Blog Swap Day and Loving Lunches will be sharing a post with my readers. This is a fantastic event that has been made possible by the great Tots100 and Digital Parents teams in UK and Australia.
When I started to think about what I would share with you I decided to make a typically British treat which could be adapted for toddlers.
After a lot of thought and some tweets with Jackie from Loving Lunches, Eton Mess was suggested. This immediately stood out as a recipe that I could make into a toddler treat! I got my foodie head on and I started planning.
I have tried a couple of variations and have finally settled on a recipe that was tried and tested by the twins.
This is what I did...
Toddler Friendly Eton Mess
Servings x 4
100g summer fruits (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants)
4 strawberries, chopped
100mls double cream
4 ginger biscuits, crushed
1 - Blend the summer fruits until you have a fruit puree
2 - Sift the puree to remove any pips
3 - Whisk the cream until thick
4 - As as much or as little of the fruit puree as you wish
5 - Place the summer fruit cream in the fridge for at least an hour
6 - To prepare the dessert divide the chopped strawberries into bowls
7 - Spoon on a generous helping of the summer fruit cream
8 - Sprinkle over the crushed ginger biscuits and top with a berry of your choice
This is a great toddler friendly version of a classic Eton Mess. The twins loved the addition of the ginger biscuits and were asking for more to be sprinkled over the top!
This recipe will allow you to make 4 desserts and will keep in the fridge for the following day, however do not add the biscuits until you are ready to serve.
