For the meringues
4 egg, whites only
110g/4oz vanilla sugar
570ml/1 pint lactose free milk
1 vanilla pod
For the fruit compote
500g mixed strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
vanilla sugar, to taste
Whisk egg whites adding the sugar slowly. Cut and split the vanilla pod. Bring the lactose free milk and vanilla to gentle simmer.
Using 2 large dessertspoons, quenelle the meringue on to the lactose free milk and gently poach each side for around 30-40 seconds. Remove and put on fruit compote and serve.
Sprinkle the mixed berries with vanilla sugar to taste. Warm berries and sugar in a pan and serve with poached meringues.
If using fresh seasonal fruit, cook for longer until the fruit is softened.
