The 3 Ingredient Recipe that Means Dessert is Happening Tonight

This Will Be Your Families New Favourite Dessert

sweet summer meringue recipe |

These little, light, chewy and crispy puffs will be the next dessert hit in your home. They are ridiculously easy to make so they are a perfect project to get your kids in the kitchen with you. Okay, obviously if you include the whipped cream this will not be a fat-free dessert but I have listed this as optional, because we love these desserts just the same with no whipped cream at all. If you are feeling a little decadent or have company coming, add a little splash of liquor to your topping, but they are really spectacular just on their own. You can make them up to a week ahead and store them in Tupperware, ready for when you need them. Feel free to go a little free-form, meringues look lovely in different shapes, just be sure to create a little crater in the centre to hold your fruit.


4 egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp cream of tartar

1 pint strawberries
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp sugar

whipping cream
1 tsp sugar

3 Ingredient Dessert |


Pre-heat over to 200 degrees.

Use a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip egg whites until light and fluffy and peaks start to form, 6-8 minutes.

Add sugar, 1/2 cup at a time and cream of tartar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form, an additional 6-8 minutes.

Dollop a large spoonful of meringue onto parchment paper.  Continue with remaining meringue.  Take the back of a spoon and create a crater in all dollops.

Bake for 1 hr.  Turn off oven.

Let meringues cool off in oven.

For fruit:

Clean and chop fruit.

Combine with sugar and lemon and let sit for atlas 1/2 hr before serving.

If using whipped cream, beat  until stiff, add sugar.

Serve meringues with whipped cream (if using) and fruit.

Gluten-free, low fat, and only three ingredients are needed.
