  • 12 to 15 lady fingers
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries you can use frozen blueberries but thaw and drain them well
  • 2 heaping tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups cream well chilled


  • Coarsely crumble the lady fingers by breaking them with your hands.
  • Place the blueberries in a shallow bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them.
  • In a chilled bowl, beat the cream until soft peaks form. Stir in the crumbled lady fingers with light strokes so as not to break the air bubbles in the cream.
  • Reserve 4 teaspoonfuls of blueberries for the topping. Add the rest (including the juices) to the cream and fold gently. Do not over mix or you’ll have a royal purple mess. What you want is for the juices to leave purple streaks all over the cream.
  • Spoon the blueberries and cream into glasses. Top with the reserved blueberries. Serve at once or keep in the fridge until needed.
