  • 700g Balloon Tree strawberries, washed, hulled and quartered
  • 60g caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp
  • Juice and zest of one lime
  • 4 fresh mint leaves, finely shredded
  • 250ml whipping cream
  • 100g Greek-style yogurt

1.  Place half the strawberries and 30g sugar in a small saucepan.  Cook over a medium low heat, stirring, for 5 minutes, until the berries have softened and thickened slightly.  Remove from the heat and stir in the lime juice.  Chill for 1 hour.

3.  Make the lime and mint sugar by combining half the lime zest with the finely shredded mint in a small bowl and stir in 1 tbsp sugar

4.  Whip the cream to soft peaks.  Gently fold in the yogurt and the remaining lime zest until combined.  Fold the chilled strawberry compote into the whipped cream.

5.  Spoon macerated strawberries into a bowl followed by the strawberry cream.  Repeat finishing with macerated strawberries.  Top with mint sugar.  Serve chilled.
