When we think summer, the following comes to mind: beach, burger, ice cream. Agreed? We thought so. 

To kick off summer, Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams in Colombus, Ohio, is showing The Daily Meal how to create a "plum mess," a favorite British sundae, in your own home. This simple recipe can be broken down in just a few steps: 

• Whip some cream 

• Combine and crush wild berries like blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries with sugar and a bit of lemon until it's a chunky juice. 

• Add any ice cream — in this case, Jeni's plum sorbet — to a bowl with mini meringues, the whipped cream, and berries, and top with crushed almonds. 

• Enjoy! 

Create and recreate this refreshing dessert over and over again, whether with these flavors or your own!
