Low Carb Berry Pavlova

Original recipe: ketodietapp.com

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 large egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar or 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 + 1/4 cup powdered Erythritol or Swerve Confectioners
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or whipped coconut milk for dairy-free
  • 1 tbsp sugar-free vanilla extract or 1 tsp vanilla bean powder
  • 1 cup each fresh strawberries, raspberries, blackberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh wild blueberries
  • 3 squares 85% dark chocolate, grated

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to low, 135 °C/ 275 °F (fan assisted), or 155 °C/ 310 °F (conventional). Crack the eggs and separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg whites into a large clean bowl or a mixer.
  2. Start beating the egg whites on medium-low speed. Continue for about 2 minutes until the whites become foamy. Then, add the cream of tartar (or apple cider vinegar).
  3. Add the 1/2 cup powdered Erythritol, a tablespoon at a time. Keep beating until they reach a stiff-peak and glossy stage.
  4. Spoon the mixture on a tray lined with parchment paper or a non-stick mat and create a round 9-inch/ 23 cm meringue. Using a spoon or spatula, build up the sides of the meringue into a nest shape so that it can hold the whipped cream and berries once it’s baked.
  5. Place in the oven in the middle section. Bake at 135 °C/ 275 °F (fan assisted), or 155 °C/ 310 °F (conventional) for 15 minutes.
  6. Then, turn the temperature down to 100 °C/ 210 °F (fan assisted), or 120 °C/ 250 °F (conventional) and cook for another 2 hours. After 2 hours, turn the oven off and keep the meringue in for another 1-2 hours or overnight. This will help the meringue dehydrate and get crispy.
  7. When the oven cools down completely, remove the meringue from the oven. Make sure it is cooled before adding the topping.
  8. Meanwhile, whip up the cream. Add the vanilla extract and the remaining 1/4 cup Erythritol. Fill the meringue nest with the vanilla cream and top with berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and sliced strawberries). Serve immediately.
