5 - Pour the strawberries and mint into the cream and stir.
6 - Remove the whole sprigs of mint and pour the mixture into a freezer proof container with a lid and place in the freezer and freeze over night.
7 - To make the meringues pre heat the oven to 100C.

To serve remove the ice cream from the freezer for 5 minutes to soften a little. Break up a meringue and place in the bottom of a glass bowl. Spoon on the strawberry and mint ice cream, scatter over some more meringue pieces and decorate with a whole strawberry and a sprig of fresh mint. This is a divine dessert which is perfect for cooling down on a hot summers day!
