Handy Tips
If you prefer, use orange juice in place of brandy to macerate the berries.


  1. 1 Crush half the strawberries in a large bowl. Add marshmallows, sugar and brandy. Stir well and set aside to macerate for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining berries.
  2. 2 Beat cream and yoghurt together until firm peaks just form. Do not over-beat.
  3. 3 Layer cream mixture, meringues and berry mixture in individual serving glasses or a large glass bowl. Sprinkle with pistachios and/or coconut.
