Pavlova is a favourite dessert for many in the summer time, and thankfully you don’t need to give it up when following a healthy eating plan.
This simple recipe comes straight from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge – where you can still indulge in delicious fun desserts while you lose weight.
You can make these ahead of time, as the meringue bases can keep for a week or two in an airtight container in the pantry. Perfect for your next summer party!
We love that these are individual pavlovas – and you can customise the topping to your guest’s tastes. Why not serve up the pavlovas with a platter of fresh fruit options for people to add to their own dessert?
Preheat oven to 120C / gas mark 1/2. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
Beat egg whites to soft peaks then continue beating and slowly add the Natvia a little at a time. Beat until the meringue has firm glossy peaks and Natvia is fully dissolved.
Drizzle over the vanilla and vinegar and sift over the cornflour. Fold through gently using a large metal spoon.
Scoop meringue into 4 portions on the lined tray and form into pavlova nests with the back of the spoon.
Place tray in oven and reduce heat to 100C / gas mark 1/4. Bake for approximately 40 minutes until the meringue begins to firm and slightly brown. Turn off the oven and prop open the door to allow meringues to cool completely in the oven, this can take an hour or more.
Pavlova nests can be served immediately or store in an airtight container, ensuring they are completely dry in the pantry for up to 2 weeks (they must be kept cool and dry to store well).
When ready to serve combine half the passionfruit pulp with the yogurt and spoon into pavlovas. Top with raspberries and remaining passionfruit pulp. One pavlova with yogurt and fruit is one serve.
