Mini Pavlova - low-carb style!

Submitted by: JEZWYN

Introduction

A healthy twist on the Aussie classic !

Nutritional information does not include sweetener as it will depend on what you use - I use erythritol which does not affect blood sugar, therefore it doesn't count as effective carb grams.

I also have not calculated toppings as it's chef's choice!

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    4 egg whites

    1/4 teaspoon of salt

    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Equivalent sweetener = 1/4 cup sugar (1/4 cup Splenda, around 1/8 bup erythritol, etc - to your taste)

Directions

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.


Line baking tray with baking paper and grease well with butter.


Beat egg whites until stiff with dash of salt and dash of cream of tartar (around 1/4 teaspoon).


Fold vanilla and sweetener into eggwhites.


Spoon enough mixture for the nest size you prefer onto the sheet, and shape into a nest with a dip in the middle for topping. Repeat to make more nests until you are out of mixture.


Bake at 275 for 30 minutes. Don't open the oven until thirty minutes have passed, or else the temperature change (even a teeny subtle one) will mean the meringue won't dry out perfectly.


Turn oven off, but don't open the door for a good two hours.


Top with whipped cream (with added sweetener if you wish), chopped almonds, passionfruit pulp, kiwi, banana, etc! YUM!

    I make them into mini pavlova, so I make nests (flat rounds with a bit more mix around the edges) of perhaps 10cm in diameter. You could easily use the exact same mix for teeny meringues, or a full sized pavlova base. Just watch the cooking time. :)
