You only need 3 ingredients to make this Peach Eton Mess, a light and delicious summer dessert that’s ready in less than 10 minutes!
Juicy in season peaches are mixed with greek yogurt and crushed up meringues to make this lighter version of traditional Eton Mess.
Whilst peaches are in season, I love to make the most of them in summer recipes such as this almond meringue Peach Melba Gateau (which also uses greek yogurt); or for a savoury peach recipe, this peach toast with feta and almonds for an easy summer lunch.
Why we love this eton mess recipe:
- It’s ready in 10 minutes – just chop, crush and mix.
- It’s a no cook dessert – perfect for hot summer evenings!
- The addition of meringue turns yogurt and fruit into a special dessert.
- It’s a delicious and easy summer peach dessert.
Ingredients List – there’s only 3!
Greek Yogurt: Whilst you can use half fat Greek yogurt in this dessert, I like to use full fat as it is creamier. Also, reduced fat yogurts tend to have more additives in them.
Peaches: Buy the ripest peaches you can as they will be more juicy and packed with flavour. You can use yellow or white peaches in this recipe. I tend to use yellow peaches as they add a lovely splash of colour to the dessert.
Meringues: You can use shop bought or homemade (it is a great recipe to use up broken or imperfect meringues!)
