Cheats Pavlova with Fresh Cherries and Strawberry Gum Cream

Print is recipe

As impressive and delicious as it is simple. Cheats Pavlova with Fresh Berries and Strawberry Gum Cream takes a store-bought meringue base and tops it with lashings of Strawberry Gum-laced fluffy cream and piles of fresh berries for a sweet, fruity end to a delicious Chrissy meal.

As we all know, Christmas Day is a busy one filled with lots of cooking, entertaining and everything in between, so I like to use a good-quality store-bought base to make things a little simpler for myself as well as free up valuable oven space on the day, but if you’re up for the challenge and would like to make yours from scratch, I love Donna Hay’s No Fail Meringue recipe which you can find by clicking here.

    Australian Native Strawberry Gum

    Product description

    Strawberry Gum, also known as ‘Eucalyptus Olida’ and ‘Forestberry’, is a native Australian plant found in Eastern Australia, predominantly in NSW. As its name suggests, its leaves give off a lovely sweet, intensely aromatic strawberry flavour when used in cooking both sweet and savoury dishes. It’s also as good for you as it is delicious with high levels of antioxidants. A delightfully fruity addition to our Natives range.
