2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then gradually beat in the remaining sugar until firm and glossy.
3. Pour the cream into a separate bowl and with the same beaters (there's no need to wash them) beat until the cream forms soft peaks but is not too stiff.
4. Mash the strawberries with a fork, then fold them into the meringue mixture with the whipped cream.
