Fruit Cloud - the ice-cream you're having, when you're not having ice-cream...

If you're going to get a disease, I've decided that Celiac disease is the one to get! No drugs, no operations - just good food! How lucky can you get? (Well actually, if I could be a skinny Celiac it would be grand, but - life is not perfect....and I have finally realised that NOTHING is perfect, so that's ok too :-)
But - it is summer, icecream season. And while I can eat a little dairy, too much is just too much. So I was very pleased to find this recipe. It is part of a recipe in Annabel Langbein's "The Free Range Cook" - a most beautiful book.

Fruit Cloud
250g berries - chopped up a bit if large
2 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice

Have all your ingredients at room temperature - it helps the mixture fluff up.

Put everything in a bowl and beat till the sugar has dissolved. This will take about 8 minutes.

Pour the mixture into a container, cover and freeze for at least 4 hours. It will keep, covered in the freezer for about a month.

The Fruit Cloud delicious, soft, sweet and melty. Perfect served with extra berries and meringues.
